Hello, I'm new to RC cars but I have a mini T and converted it to a Toro micro esc 25m and a 4300kv 4 pole motor. From what I read these seem like a good choice for a battery. However im not sure what to get for a charger any help would be great!
Hello. Could some one tell me if this lipoly pack can be use in this model from himoto´*s brand?? w w w . himotoracing . c o m /index.php?main=catalogue&product=truck&scale=16&typ e=electric&pg=1&code= Motor is 4450kV brushless, but i dont know amps esc but it´*s ready for lipo packs... tks so much!

Motor is 4450kV brushless, but i dont know amps esc but it´*s ready for lipo packs... tks so much!
there are many plugs available but i would recommend the yellow tx60 plug set or the red deans plug set.Make sure the female plug goes on battery and male on the esc and your charger.Both plug types are available from hobby king. Oh also solder wires onto plugs one at a time and the right polarity.
Hi guys , is white smaller plug for charging and other for connection with esc? I got a problem That esc plug on plane model is different from both of those two plugs on battery...
Am I doing smth wrong?
Thanks in advance!
Hi, the bigger plug is for discharging (connection to ESC). The smaller plugs is used to balance cells. Computerized chargers charges through both plugs, but cheaper ones only through balance port. If the big connector doesn't fit to ESC, either change it on ESC or battery (if you'll change it on battery - be careful not to short red and black cables)
yes, looks-like those are the same (or very similar )..
maybe you know any adapter I could purchase ?
I'm not sure I know how to change the plug.. and what plug I need to change to ?
thanks in advance!
Hey, here is the adapter you could use "Male XT60 <-> Female T-Connector (1pc/bag)". But it is back-ordered at the moment. However, I strongly recommend to change plug on the battery by yourself. You would need to re solder it. Search for videos on youtube about soldering. You can find required T plug at almost every hobby store.
It is safer to change it on the ESC side and if you would buy more batteries from HK then you wouldn't need to change connectors at all. But if you have other batteries you use with your plane, you have to change them on the other batteries too...
thank you very much for your assistance!
2 more questions:
1) most batteries from hk have
discharge plug: "XT60" ?
2) So, in case if I use this batteries, -
I'll require male plugs for ESC side, right ?
3) there's black and red wires. Does not metter how to solder them to connector ?
4) when I'll connect battery to esc ** red<->red, black<->black ?
You're welcome Volodymyr! 1) Yes, most batteries from HK comes with XT60 plugs. 2) Yep, you need male on ESC side. 3) Black wire always connects to black ESC wire (just as red to red). If you would connect it otherwise you would see some magic smoke :). And remember - black and red wires on the battery can't touch each other or you can damage the battery and see some sparks
but if you are using a good charger like the IMAX B6-AC Charger/Discharger 1-6 Cells (GENUINE).The balance white plug and the ex60 plug must both be used.I also have charged my turigy nano tec 2200 3 cell at 4400mah ,in other words double the power quick but please keep a eye on your battery if it gets to hot stop immediate but so far allmy turnigy batteries including my 2 cell 4000amh nano tec 65c can handle double charge hope i could help you Sharon South Africa
Yes they can. I've used 2s and 3s batteries on brushed crawler motors. The sizes I use are 850-1500mah and around 25-30C. The larger the mah, the longer the run time, the higher the "C" rating, the more power you will see. Some ESC's have a limit on cell count so check and see what you can use.
yes you can, as long as your amp rating on your battery is higher than the the draw rating on your bec you should be fine, you might want to look at a little bigger of a battery, maybe like a 1500mah li-po, especially if your racing or bashing for long periods of time
i think yes, but it 's small capacity an discharge for the mini revo
you have zippy 2200mah who are perfect size (no or minor adjustements) for longer run time
a lot of persons use them in mini revos and their satisfied
of this battery did not show the connector plug which was listed as a JST-XH, but the actual plug is a strange blue two pole female connector resembling a tamiya type which I have never seen. I must cut it off and replace with a more standard connector.
