Marcus, if you wanna use this pack in a t-rex 600, you'll need a high voltage setup to allow you use 8s.
Flight time will depend of your throttle and pitch curves. Normal curves, no 3D, guess you can get more than eight minutes in air.
Guildy93, what high voltage setup would you recommend? I was planning on useing my Hobbyking SS Series 90-100A ESC teamed up with my Turnigy Typhoon 600H Heli Motor 1100kv, what battery would you recommend with this setup (I intend to fly mild 3D) ? Cheers Marcus
I don't have this exact pack, but I use 2 4S5000mAh packs giving me 8S5000mAh on my HK600GT. I do this using a Superbrain 100A ESC and the Turnigy 880KV motor (the red one). Works great. I get about 12 minutes of hovering or sport flying out of it. If you do 3D, will be less.
Love the packs size but 2 out of the 4 packs came with several cells below 1.5V. I have been trickling them up to voltage very slowly per cell but it has taken several days and the low cells are weak and do not balance. Warranty is pointless as I have to register post them to Hong Kong which costs a lot of money. Have not used them on my ebike yet or put them under any load. It says in the warranty that all cells are checked for voltage, it just can not be so as 5 cells out of 32 (4 x 8S pack) were below 2volts.
So my first order for 4 x 5.8ah 8 cell Turnigy Long packs came and 2 of the packs had cells that were around 0.8V! One of the packs decided to sort of work ok...the other discharges the dud cell very quick and it also charges way to quick on that one cell.
I order a replacement as I need a 16Cell 11.6Ah pack, the single pack arrived yesterday and again cell 8 is very low at 1.2V with the rest of the cells at 3.85V
What the hell is up with quality control? It says that they check the packs twice for voltages? I don't think so.... 3 out of 5 bad packs is just too much, sure I could send them back to China at my cost which is as much as the packs cost nearly when you take into account Insurance and UK postal costs.
Really not impressed!
I have purchased 4 Turnigy 8S 25c 5800 mAh batteries from you and cannot figure out how to recharge them or find connecters that will allow me to connect them to my equipment. I will provide you with a list of equipment I have and would like you to tell me what I should purchase to complete the circuits to make it all work. This is my first electric motor and lipo and I have no idea where to start. I went to my local hobby shop and he told me to send the batteries back to you because there is no way to recharge them.
I have: Hacker A50 16S Engine Phoenix HV 110 50 Volt max ESC Thunder Power TP-1010C recharger Thunder Power TP-210V balancer
After some experimentation and almost destroying my TP-210, I figured out a wiring configuration that works perfectly with the above stated equipment. All you need are 2 5S TP connectors and the correct combination of wire connections. You don't need a new 8S recharger from Hobby King. Thanks for nothing.
I see you need a balance adapter. I looked and did not see one. I am not a big fan of Thunder Power. Thunder Power uses a different plug for their battery's. Thunder Power's 6 cell packs uses two balance plugs. I think they are silly. The Turnigy and Zippy Flightmax battery's use the same balance tap as E-Flite. I use a Accucel 8 charger charging my stuff at 7 amps. I would take back the Thunder Power charger and balancer. You can buy two Accucel 8 charger's and more battery's with the money saved from the charger and balancer. I do not know where to get a 8 cell balance adapter for the Thunder Power charger. I looked online and do not think one exists yet. I would email thunder Power. You can charge these with the lipo charge setting in your charger. You would need to buy a battery balancer for 8 cells to match this battery's balance tap. I could not find a 8 cell lipo balancer online either. If it were me I would sell the Thunder power charger and get the Imax or Turnigy charger. Sorry I was not much help.
The cable I mentioned is backwards for you to use. They sell cables that you can solder to make your own adapter. I would goto progressiverc**** and email them to get the two cables you need to make a nice cable.
