I bought two of these batteries the day they were released over three months ago, and have raced with them (carpet/foam/onroad/brushless) nearly every single week since then, sometimes twice. On each race day, the batteries see about three runs each, 2 times in practice, 3 heats and a main. They were every bit as fast last night (about like a good 4200) as they were the day I bought them, and show no signs of wear or decreased performance.
I know the LiPo debate is like a religious battle, and I feel like I understand why both sides are so passionate about their stance. With that in mind, I don't see how anybody could ever go back to the old way of doing things. From the convenience of being able to charge my packs up days before a race to the lack of needing to carry gear or discharging, to the consistent performance, this has easily been the most enjoyable update to R/C racing I've experienced so far. I'm tempted now to buy two or three more packs and leave my charging gear behind entirely. If that's not good for the hobby, I don't know what is.
