Hello, Buggy Master, as I had only acquired the Orca TX Lipo batt recently, I had only used it for one race day so far (I run 3 EP off-road classes). So, it's too short a period to really evaluate it. No problems so far and I hope it stays that way for a long time
Yep, great price which is only slightly higher than an assembled 8-9 TX NiMH AA cells.
No foam spacers came with the Orca TX Lipo batt so you have to source/cut your own so that it will be snug in the battery compartment and will not move around while using your TX.
I never actually weighed the TX Lipo batt versus the 8 NiMH AA cells but the Orca TX Lipo batt did not feel that much lighter than the 8 NiMH AA cells.
I also got myself Futaba TX/RX charge leads (http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXL332&P=ML
) to minimize handling the TX Lipo batt (I'm afraid I might drop it
when I always have to remove it from the batt compartmentto charge).
I received this item in the mail yesterday, so, even though I didn't need to charge the TX Lipo batt, I just had to test the TX charge lead.
