I have seven Turnigy batteries of different sizes and all of them became slightly swollen during the summer even though they were not used, were fully charged, and stored in my garage. I don't think the temperature in the garage ever exceeded 90 deg. F. Is this a dangerous problem?
Battery id actually much longer and much thinner than the measurements state or the photos show. it is the same height and length as a turnigy 2200mah 25c, just a lot thinner. consequently it will not fit in my pilatus porter which had the battery compartment specifically designed for packs of this size. not happy with this hobbyking. also it has plastic coated balance leads rather than the nice silicone wires on turnigy packs in days gone by. Apart from these things im sure it will perform well, as moth other turnigy packs do. ***********parkflyers****.nz/modules/newbb/viewtopic .php?start=40&topic_id=1031&viewmode=flat&order=ASC& type=&mode=0
Jason, can you shed some light on why the customer recieved a different sized lipo than what is stated in the description and photo?? cheers.
Perfect batteries for my Nitro-Planes P38. They just fit into the wing Nacelle with a little twisting and gentle pushing. Without modifying the airframe these are the largest that will fit. They also give easily 10 minutes of mid power flying.
I'm using this battery to fly an "act europe" me163 converted from a slope soarer (the kit is no longer available) It's 700mm span weighs 474g and is powered by a keda thumbrun 28-30/6 (kv2200)driving a 4.1"x4.1" tgs prop at 0ver 23000rpm via a hobbywing 40a pentium esc. The power is up to 300w 7 flights so far and the battery is holding up very well The model is just ...... fast. no it's very fast!
