Default Anyone try Revolectrix Lipos?

Has anyone given Revolectrix Lipos a try in their 600 Pro? They seem to be very good quality, right on par with Thunder Power 65c. I ordered a pair today.

And another where one of the owners of Revolectrix is very involved.

Got a few cycles on these new packs. Man they are awesome! I can bury the collective and just hold it, the KDE motor just screams as the batteries keep up without a problem. During heavy loads the voltages hold better than my Gens Ace packs according to my HV80 logs.

The shipping from Singapore to my door in Va took just a few days.Ordered over the weekend and then they arrived the following Wednesday.

Packing was really nice. Each pack was wrapped in bubble wrapped, in a box lined with foam, that box was wrapped in bubble wrap, which was then in a UPS padded envelope.

Looking cool, according to the data, they should be on par with thunder power at a lower price. How well is the fit on the heli? My Nanotech 45c are very tight (they are puffed, what a surprise! ).

They are maybe 5mm or less longer than my Gens Ace and Sky Lipo packs so there is plenty of room. Taped to the battery tray the pair was about 10g heavier than my Sky Lipos.

60 days warranty, John (One of the owners) said you can return them for any reason...even if you just aren't impressed.

Are they in same dimensions as they advertised? If it is true, they are small and lighter from their competitors. I think it is a good thing for us.

They are pretty much the exact same size and weight as my 30c Sky Lipo an 25c Gens Ace pairs.

Hey guys,

Just wanted to pass on that A Main is now the US distributor for Revolectrix packs. The prices are the same but you can get free UPS ground shipping! Shipping from Singapore was fast but $30 so this will save those of us in the US a good amount.

Interesting- AMain has a note that says "Large lithium batteries are now subject to HAZMAT fees". If they apply this, it could easily add $25 back to the cost of the batteries.

Even within the US or just internationally? This is what is still on their site.

"Note: Lithium batteries cannot be shipped internationally via USPS; shipping more than 2 internationally is now subject to HAZMAT, with fees and limited availability"

I have about 20 cycles on my Revolectrix packs, unfortunately I haven't been able to get a lot of flying in this winter. Well yesterday I was really able to give them hell! These are the most powerful lipos I have.

Here is a flight video flying with the Revolectrix packs. They have no problem giving the monster KDE motor all the juice it needs!
