krash, Now for me,...after a bit of aimless wandering around the battery section, which is confusing at first. So for my 9X
HobbyKing 1500mAH LiFe 3S 9.9v Transmitter pack.
Battery requirements for 9XR can be different
Key-in "transmitter pack" in the right hand search window and then click on view all.
Now, the Turnigy 2200 lipo made exclusively for the 9xr. Does not appear on that list, it is called "Turnigy 9XR Safety Protected 11.1v (3s) 2200mAh 1.5C Transmitter Pack" Hope this helps
They are grate batteries and yes thank you hobby king for providing them for as!
You should see the weight & size of the batteries from 1300-1600 on the website and adjust accordingly what your plane needs.
I bought 2 of the Zippy Flightmax batteries Specs
Capacity: 1500mAh* Voltage: 3S1P / 3 Cell / 11.1v* Balance Plug: JST-XH* Discharge plug: XT60.
How do I plug it into my Parrot AR-Drone 1? The plugs don't match up. I got these a year or so ago and got side tracked with personal business and now I want to get back into flying it a s I haven't flown it yet.
Do I need some type of adapter? If yes can someone give me the info on it including where to purchase?
Thanks for any help and info.
Did you ever get any help, you can't put a web address on your posts, cause it gets deleted. You kind of have to be cryptic and point with words to get your image location. Have you any more info to help us to make a suggestion?
C stands for discharge rate. It is simply how fast a battery can be discharged safely. The faster the ions can flow from anode to cathode in a battery will indicate the discharge rate. In the RC LiPo battery world it is called the “*C”* rating.
Simply it means how fast a battery can be discharged safely. The higher the C rating the faster the battery will discharge and you will get low flight times, 20c is best for Bixler/fpv setup.I hope this helps
More powerfull engine needs more power from the battery, the "C" tells you how mouch you can get from it, 20c x 1500mAh = 30Ah. 25c x 1500mAh = 37,5Ah,
To get the most out of your engine use a matching bettery.
the c is the discharge capacity, for example this pack have 20c of discharge, 1 c =1500 mah 20c=30000 mah (30 amp), this pack if good for use with an esc arround the 30 amp, and an electric motor with a consume of max 30 amp, if you use this pack with a electronics where consumes more than 30 amp (20c of this pack) you will damage your battery.
Milind: 3C would be 4.5 amps, NOT 1.5 amps, and NOT a good idea. 2C is the max recomended which is 3 amps and would be safe, BUT, for extra safety and longer battery life 1C, 1.5 amps would be my personal preferance.
If you charge it at 2C the charge current would damage the cells but you wouldn't have a chance to charge it near 2C because all Li-po Chargers are set to Charge at 1C unless you have a faulty Charger which I don't Recommend Using.
Don't even think about a low voltage cutoff!!!! That's the worst idea I've EVER seen! You're flying your model and your radio suddenly shuts down, Huh? NO BLOODY WAY THANK YOU zanek. Maybe a low voltage buzzer maybe but the last thing you want is to have your radio suddenly shut down almost certainly causing the destruction of a model just to save shortening the life of a seven dollar battery. There's no memory effect with these. Just top up charge them regularly if using in a TX.
3S refers to the number of cells (3.7V) in series in a pack. So in a 3S pack you have a total of 11.1V at resting (12,6 Fully Charged)
1P refers to the number of cells in parallel. For example you could have 1 3S2P 2200ma pack. This pack would have 2 x 1100ma cells in parallel (2200mah) x 3 in series to give you 11,1V..... Confussed yet???
Dont worry about the 1P reference in lipo batteries as lipo batteries are al single celled these days. the reference is from the early days of lipos.
That means that there are 3s=3 cells wired for more voltage and 1p means 1 parallel. So there are only 1 cells parallel so there are 3 cells in the battery. If it was 3s2p then it would be 6 cells wired to be 3s voltage and double capacity. How I remember is the P# is the number of packs in one. Because if it is 1p then there are cells in the same number as the name, like a 3s1p is 3 cells, but 3s2p is 6 cells, so it is really 2 packs wired together
I think that this battery is too heavy for the HK EPO Parkjet.In the parkjet description HK says that this jet use a 800mAh lipo so if you want put this battery on this plane you will have to install a bigger motor than the stock one.
I ordered this over a month ago. Still haven't got it. Been on the online chat with out a solution. This was my first order with Hobby King. Sorry to say, probably my last. I can't get a refund or my order. Signed-still waiting in the USA
I've order 2x ZIPPY Flightmax 1500mAh 3S1P 20C in March and haven't received them yet, still BO. Can anyone suggest me an alternative for these batteries? I have Brushless 1 1/16 E-Revo RC. Thx in advance
Hello! I'd like to ask the customers who have some experience with this battery a couple of questions. How much does this battery weigh as received? I see in the description a weight of 138 grams is listed, however in a review I read it was close to 110gr. Also, how many cycles can this battery be used with max current about 20A and average about 10A without voltage sag on a 3D model? I'm in doubt between this battery and Flightmax 1600mAh 3S 20C. Thanks in advance!
mine weighs exactly 123 gr. complete with wires/connectors* the Zippy with equal specs weighs and measures the same BTW. It does take more than 1500 mAH, so it's actually a bit larger battery than advertised.
I bought two of these lipos to fly my Laser200 46" (with a DT750 plus Esc 25A) and my HB King V2! The capacity is higher than 1500mah , B6 charger has put 1520 mah load it. I fly 8 minutes in HB King and 10 minutes in Laser 200, and the batteries are warm, not hot!
The true weight of it is 120 grams. Really a good buy, will soon want to buy two more!
Baterias perfeitas pro meu Laser200 e pro Heli! Peso real é 120 gramas. Recomendo...

too much heavy for 1500mA series 138 gr, for this weight is better Zippy 1800 for 143 gr weight and the price is over only someone dollars

I bought 2 of these batteries. I discharged them and charged them fully and they took 1554mAh each!!!!!!!! I run them with a HobbyZone Super Cub with a TurnigySK2830-750 swinging a 10x7 TGS Sport Prop. Setup pulls about 16A and gives a flight time of 10-15min. After 10 mins of flying these little beauties don't even get warm!!!

Running this battery in a gws formosa, with 1450kv turnigy outrunner on an 8x6 apc prop. Holds 10.5 volts under load, drawing 28 amps,(20C almost) Excellent battery, but only 4 stars due to the fact that its heavier then some 1800 3s packs I have.

I'm using this batt on my Zoombi 3D plane with Hacker 20-20L compatible (also from Hobby City), and it works great! Unlimited vertical, and the batt gets barely warm.
