Yellow Jackets Receiver Packs; What's your preference?

Discussion in 'Electric Motors, ESC's, Batteries, and Chargers' started by YellowJacketsRC, Jul 15, 2014.

  1. Gyro (Gary Ford) has suggested there is a need for Receiver Packs. I have the ability to supply 2s lipos that are 2500 mAh and only 3C. They are light and inexpensive.

    I also can supply 2s lipos that are 25C and up. These come in many different sizes: 1500 mAh, 1800 mAh, 2500 mAh, 3300 mAh and even larger.

    Do you guys have a need for any of the above? Anything else you are looking for? What would be your preference for RX packs? 3C or 25c?

    Thanks for posing this question for everyone Rob!

    Personally, I think a receiver pack for High Voltage Servos in a large 50/100cc gasser would need to be 25c to enjoy the power of a LiPo for all those hard maneuvers... However the 3c size still have their place on a smaller plane like supplying HV power on a 60" bird with servos like the HS-7245MG (2s 1500mAh 3C), or even a 30cc bird with some HS-5565MH servos or similar (2s 2500mAh 3C).

    So for me, sizes I'd like to see are:

    2s 2500mAh/3300mAh 25C with Deans and balance plug for the bigger planes
    2s 1500mAh / 2s2500mAh with Deans and two JR servo plugs.

    What about the rest of you out there, what do you think?

    RX packs:
    Good idea since you aren't currently offering them now.. This is what I would be interested in.

    2s 2500mAh/3300mAh 25C with Deans and balance plug for the bigger planes

    Iginition Packs:
    I also think think you should consider the advancement of ignition technology and create a few different size packs for the new dle iginitions. I know some people are going to IBEC's but a lot of still perfer to keep rx and iginitions batts seperate. As far as I know know one is focusing on that part of the market. These packs would have to be built with a standard servo plug. My preference would be something in the 2500 mah range.

    Hope this helps!
  4. Thanks Gary.

    Mike, I assume these ignition packs would be of very low C rating?

    Ignition packs would run excellent at very low rating.

    It's an interesting topic to say the least. Yes low C rating would be good. To me just the weight difference alone between a nimh versus a comparable lipo can save almost 200 grams or half a pound. I'm not an electrician and don't even try to pretend i know all about this lipo chemistry stuff… I don't but, weight… I understand that. Don't want it and if I can shed nearly half a pound from my rig! That's good news.
