Seems legit. Blowout, or Greatness? You decide.

Well from the case pattern it looks like it's made by Intellect, so we should be seeing them soon for half the "Epic" street price out of HK...

Bring on the 1S Havok and I'll buy one or two. And make it reasonably priced please!

The cell look good, but what about getting a saddle pack approved then you can buy one saddle pack and split.

Much better cost saving.

I don't think the saddes will fit pan cars. They are taller & shorter. I guess you can make anything work though...

Looks like a fine product and I'm please to see major manufacturers stepping up with a 1s.

But. It's been my experience that once a LiPo gets to 5000+ mAh, it's additional weight begins to offset any gain in performance over, say a 4400.

I'm basing this comment on my perspective of acceleration only in the drag racing arena. On-road road course guys and gals have to balance off the extra run time it'll offer.

Not many folks out there drag racing a 1s. Just offering up the weight card as a consideration in the decision-making process. That said, whatever it weighs, it still probably comes in lighter that a 4 x NiCd/NiMh round cell pack.

My thoughts.
