They will be available from all the current places that stock our packs. Local shops can order them from Horizon Hobby or Great Planes.

The new materials are for the 40C+ packs. The 25C packs will use the same materials as our 24C packs.

Are 11.1V popular in the E-Revo ? Since were paying for the new cell tooling we could offer a 11.1V packs as well.

Actually yes allot of guys run two 3s packs for a 6s setup
And very cool motor temps. Currently the 3s packs are kinda
Limited for the e revo. I believe you would be first to have
Revo specific packs.

The 8600 is actually going to be 29 x 45 x 159. Based on the calculations it should be 8600/25C. Actual capacity will be known once the sample packs are done.

For the 11.1V pack we can make it at 28 x 45 x 159 with anticipated capacity of 5500/25C.

I two run a JRXS Type R. I prefer packs with 4mm terminals like the Orion, Checkpoint, etc. Will this EFRA pack have terminals or will it have the wire and balancing port exiting like your current batteries. Sorry not familiar with the EFRA rules.

I see a 7.4v 3200 and 5200 @40c but nothing around the 4000. Is there a plan for a 40c 21mm thickness or under around the 4000 mah range?

The EFRA pack will replace the 4000/28C pack. So the thinnest pack we will have is 23.5mm

Were starting to ship out the 5200s tomorrow and supply should be tight at first but by the end of this month it should be better.

The 3200 and 5200 are now on the ROAR approved list.
