I was going to purchase the CellPro 4s charger, which does have
adapters for various non CellPro battery packs.. Like PolyQuest/
thunderpro. They dont list DN as a type of battery they support
(though the universal adapter may work as well).
I am finally building the twinstarII, which eventually will haul up a
camera (with another 950mah 3s battery).. so initial weight might be
43 oz, then 48oz with camera (motor either ripmax xtra 2829/10 or
Hacker A20-26M, leaning towards hacker, either motor choice (x2)
pulling about 18 amps).
My thought at first was to go with a cheaper 2100mah battery pack
(lighter 5.6-6 oz) then later on throw a 3200mah (9.2 oz) to give
longer flights if it is needed (I should get 15 minutes out of a
2100-2500 pack, or so i think based on what I saw).
I was originally just going to go CellPro on batteries, but then I
found some cheaper alternatives.
Any thoughts on the non cell pro ones or even some of the competitive
ones that are about the same price:
CellPro CP03200-3S-N $84.95 9.2oz 20C 3200mah;
CellPro CP02100-3S-N $47.95 5.1oz ; 18C; 5.1oz; 2100mah;
PolyQuest (poly/rc) 3s 2500mah 12C
PolyQuest (poly/rc) 3s 3100mah 12C
**This $29 price seems amazing, too good to be true.. I was originally
looking at 15C as the value that everyone said was good enough, so
CellPro had the 18/20's at those prices which seemed decent, but these
Polyquests at 12C should be sufficient too? (motors will probably pull
a combined amp of about 18 amps max)
Others I've found as well:
GPMP0725 Great planes :
$79 3200mah 15C, has deans plug already on it; 9.8oz
GPMP0721 Great Planes:
$54.99 2100mah 15C ; 6.5oz;
Fullymax weight $89 Fullymax 3300 3s lipo with his Bp-12's. ($90) 15C one
person getting 20 min flights?
DN 2150mah 3s 15C:
(may not have a cellpro connector?)
So in short, the CellPros, to me, seem decently priced, though I'd
like to really go with a 2500mah battery pack minimally, so that makes
the PolyQuests attractive, even though their C is at 12C, or better
yet, the 3100mah Polyquest.
Any thoughts on this, as I'm new to choosing the right Lipo here.
