Zippy Flightmax batteries deliver full capacity & discharge as well as being the best value batteries in the hobby market today!
The Zippy Flightmax 2500mAh Transmitter pack fits snuggly into any Futaba or Jr radio which takes a 4x4 AA cell battery configuration (see image).
With a capacity of 2500mAh this lipoly replacement for your old NiCD or NiMH will last four to five times longer. Probably the best advantage with a lipoly transmitter battery is that it will give a true voltage reading from start to finish which means you can say goodbye to the days where you thought your Transmitter was fully charged at home, only to find the voltage drop off rapidly when at the field.
My transmitter Futaba T7C uses a NT8S600B NiCad battery pack supplying the transmitter with 9.6 volt. You claim this battery will fit into a Futaba transmitter and is supplied with the right connector. How about the voltage 11.1v versus 9.6v?
Yes it fit. However there is an issue with battery plug. This battery has three wires. You can use the out of the box black 3-pin plug but it is uncomfortable. I replaced 2-pin plug from battery with 3-pin plug from 9x battery box.
Hi jakub I just wanted to say you can fit the battery in the turnigy 9x without cutting the original battery box wire. all you need to do is place the battery in with the zippy logo face down on the bottom of the 9x and your sorted :)
I accidentally forgot my Turnigy 9X on and apparently over-discharged this battery and now cannot even get my LiPro Balance Charger to charge, balance, discharge, store or fast charge it. Is there any way here to salvage this battery or is it totally trashed?
Thanks for the advice, but I suppose as a result of this over-discharge, this battery is now just a bit "puffy". Is this a sign that its permanently damaged or will this go away after a few charges, ot just with time?
Sorry not to be so clear, but I meant if the plug fits and not the battery size, because I use one of these batteries on 9X with the 2 wires plug. The four wires plug showed on your picture, I use only to balance charge the batt. So, do this battery connects to 9XR with the 4 wires plug??
Classic Turnigy 9x has small 2-pin plug. I replaced the out of the box plug from battery box with one of the battery plug.
Turnigy 9XR has 4-pin plug. This plug is compatible with out of the box battery ballance plug.
The battery needs to have the leads reversed to fit the Turnigy 9X. It swap the leads just place a thin metal spike under the thin plastic strip that holds the wire in place. Gently prise the plastic up and pull the lead out. Do the same for the other lead then reinstall them with the black lead on the left side of the plug so you have the correct polarity
Can be used with 9X?, But without making any modification to the Lipo?
My question is that if you do not need any adjustment, just load it into my charger ImaxB6AC and insert it into the station.
Is that so?
It fits perfectly inside the battery compartment in a 9X. If you want to charge it with the chargeport at the TX as well you have to solder the battery wires (or adapter) directly to this and then it should work just fine.
Yes you can use it, it plugs right in no mods. No need to unplug it as it has a very low internal discharge rate and the transmitter will display battery voltage when switched on. As long as the voltage is above 10 volts things will work just fine. Ive had mine in the transmitter now for 5 months since used last, just checked the voltage,, turned the transmitter on and still showing 11.3 v.
My electric motor has a 4mm diam. shaft and the threaded portion is 6mm with a compression collet on the rear side. Can anyone help me with a prop drive part number.I am new to electric power. Thanks, Dave
on this transmitter pack, I see in photo 3 separate connectors* what are the three plugs used?
I use a JST plug for my sailboat (laser) power and for charging my battery pack.
Will I have to solder a new connector in place of one of these plugs?
Thanks for your help.
wires where two wires red and black - is power! you can solder a new connector

Received battery in perfect condition. All cells came charged at 3.91 volts. Description measurements are accurate. Balance leads: 45mm Futaba discharge lead: 70mm JR discharge lead: 72mm
After cutting and lowering the battery floor on my Futaba 6EX 2.4 GHz, I can now use this battery or the original flat NiCd. Charged it up to 12.6 volts, and it works fandamntastic! Another winner. Thanks again Hobby King!

whoever plug a jr/spektrum connector to a "hitec" transmitter and found out he has a blow out (ouch!) need to learn basic electricity specially DC electric! the standard norm is Red wire =Positive... Black wire=Negative but u still going to watch out since alot of manufacturers doesn't use the "standard" color... jr/spektrum and others used brown wire = as negative so u have to watch those color coding! also on hitec transmitter, it has a safety tab if you used their "battery" so that you can't plug them in reverse... the problem is the jr/spektrum connector will fit on hitec BUT on reverse connection to use it "properly" ( please look first how your original hitec battery plug polarity i.e. positive on positive, negative on negative plug)so that you wont repeat the same mistake.. make a mark on your transmitter which is positive and negative.. please use common sense for any DC electric wiring!..
P.S. another tip: those people who are afraid of voiding their warranty and afraid that 12.6v will fried their transmitter, use a good charger that has a "storage function" like bantam.. i charged my lipo at 11.4v using the storage function.. it will not fully charge your lipo but hey a 11.4v lipo is not the same with a 11.6v nimh/nicd since they discharge differently (lipo is more efficient than nimh/nicd) which still equates to hours of uses compare to nicd/nimh before needing charges...
btw, if you don't have a storage function, you can just watch your charger charging t

Hi I ordered two of these, one for myself and the other for a friend. I had the 1800mah version before this one which was replaced by this 2500mah, great product and with spectrum and futuba plugs, I used it for the first time alst weekend and it started at the full 12.6v and after over a hours use it had only dropped to 12.4v.

I have these packs in our Futaba 7C FASST radios and it's something you'll never regret purchasing. I still have yet to charge them but when the time comes I'll make an adaptor and use my lipo charger and it will be done in an hour compared to hours and hours using the wall charger for the stock nicads.
