A long time ago at SoCal I zip-tied an old computer RAM stick to the upper deck of my Pro 2, soldered some servo wires to it and ran them under the ESC. I called it my Biphase Switching board (or BS for short) and gave various explanations: it would collect radio interference and with my third channel I could release all the gathered interference to wreck everyone else running, etc.
that`s real clever ,like BS bit aswell

Just got some more detailed info on this pack while i was at work today.

The pack its self is made by a company called FLIGHT POWER who have been making batteries for planes and helis for a while now. One of their packs powered an electric helicopter to victory over a whole field of IC helis in the uk 3d championships earlier this year.

The person I spoke to today didn't mention anything about cell matching and they have never matched a flight pack before so I don't think that part is true. but they did confirm that it will be released in the uk in the next few weeks and has a retail price of 78.00.

If there are made by Flight Power they should be good... A few of us at our lhs use them and all love the cells.
