Get these 20C Turnigies, they are a bomb! My 700E is super poppy.

Those look to be out of stock. The Turnigy version of the same, 20C or 25C pack is a little heavier but will work just the same. Don't think it is as important for weight on a T700 with the power you get from that setup. I have 8 packs and love them.

I'm thinking of getting these ones.

I'm not sure if I should wait for the 25c or get the 30c now, still debating here.

whats your flying style...well actually it wouldnt matter i would get the 20c being there a big difference in price...then again thats me. i hear the the 15c was mislabeled and there really 20c or 25c. as far as waiting i guess i would wait it out thats if you already have batteries to power up your heli.

3D, and I do tictoc a lot, though I'm still working on perfecting it.

I was thinking about 30c since that's available now. I already have 4 x 6s packs to fly, so I can bare with it for now. I won't be upset about waiting for another month. I think I'll be fine with 25c, but 20c is a bit scary for a 90 size bird.

Yes, I stand by my words these are mighty batteries. I just got same 20C 4000 4s Turnigys to run in my 8s Trex 600, and they also perform fantastically. On 600, the batteries are pushed harder than they would be on 700 in 12s configuration, and Turnigies come down just barely warm. I also run Zippy-h 25C-35C 4000 4s1p batteries that have about 50 flights on them. The Turnigies are new, and they perform slightly better than Zippy-H. The IR is also less than Zippy-H when they were brand new. It appears that HC now rates these batteries at 30C because 4000 20C and 30C batteries have almost exactly the same weight and dimensions.

Here, compare yourself:

Turnigy 6s 5000mAh 30c is good price! I haven't build My 700E not yet. What best performance for 20C or 25C or 30C on Trex 700E with double batteries.
Thanks in advance!

Yep, I scooped up 6 of these. The interesting thing, though, is that once the correct 20-25C labels were applied, the price didn't change. Still $60. These are awesome packs for the price.

cbdane,

Can you remember what voltage these Turnigy packs were supplied at? I have several myself, but It will be some time before I am ready to use them. I wondered if they were supplied at storage voltage. I haven't got the right balance tap connectors yet to try them on my charger.

Geoff.

From memory mine were all at storage voltage when delivered so should be fine in storage for a while before use.

I like the Zippy 6s5000 25c packs because the weight is the closest to the TP 6s5000 packs I have and I already have 4 of these. Others are just too heavier, causing the heli to be out of balance.

Someone pokes these guys to hurry up and make more Zippy 6s5000 25c packs.

The Zippies are in! The Zippies are in!

They just got a shipment of about 125, 6S 5000 25C Zippy flight max batteries. My order is in for a dozen.

There are still 90 or so available. Go get them while they last.

A dozen? You plan on selling them or something? I ordered 4 to add to my existing 4 packs. My 700E can do 4 flights and with the on-site generator, I can fly all day
