Default Heads up on a great RX pack

Quick heads up for those wanting a high power light weight LifePO4 RX pack…I purchased the 1100mAh 6.6V 18650 pack 30C/60C (400317-001). Its only $27, weighs 95g and will deliver a continuous 33A and 66A bursts! Not that you EVER need such high current draw.
By it here http://rclipos.com/A123_Packs.htm OR if you live in the states its only $19.57 here (postage included) http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/One-pcs-A123-AR18650-2S1PF-6-6V-1100mah-RC-hobbies-NEW-/380346743923?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item588e6e bc73
It is a far better value when compared to the Hyperion lifePO4 2100mAh 6.6V RX pack which weighs in at 106g and can only deliver a MAX current of 10.5A.
Sure you will have to charge more often, but it can be fast charged at a 4C rate. So who cares!

I’m going to try one out to see whether my BEC is causing electronic issues.

All good if you have HV Servos, but if your stuck on the 6v gear like I am you"ll need a life pack.

Nice and light though at 48g.

Damn, so it sounds Like I'll only squeeze 4 flights in before a recharge, I was hoping for 6. Only testing will tell I guess. Maybe I'll just buy another.

Are you basing the 80% discharge rule on remaining voltage or how much capacity the charger is putting back into the pack?
