Default SMC CMAX 5200 50c VS THUNDER POWER 5200mAh 2S 7.4V G4 Pro Race 50C

Which is the better of the two for 17.5, 13.5 AND 10.5 classes.

Neither, the TP 5000 40C will be the fastest for anything but mod. This is the opinion of manufactures too.

I have also heard that from other thread, TP 5200 50C is not specially for spec race, instead the old 5000 40C.

But now i have another question, if i can not find the original TP5000 40C, how about the Fantom 5000 40C, aren't the same thing?

1 more, if i use Hyperion 720NET3 to charge TP or Fantom lipo, which balance adapter should i have, instead of original ones, how about the Much More adapters, do they fit Hyperion 720 series?

Best regards and Happy New Year

Amains got em, they also have the adapter for your charger as well

My answer for the guy that started the thread would be go with the Thunderpower 40c pack as well, great batteries!

Here's the pack you are looking for.

http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...D=THP50002SPRD

As far as what adapter you need, I'm not sure exactly what part number. Just make sure it is listed for a TP 2s pack. The TP packs use a different style balance port vs most other brands.

I am not saying TP is not good, as i know Fantom lipos are the re-labelled TP batteries then TP worth 125USD, for me is too pricey.
If Fantom ones are cheaper why we don't go with them, aren't they the same?
Could someone confirm it, please?

Best regards and Happy New Year

Here's where you can find the Fantom Racing packs.

http://www.fantomracing.com/

There's only a 5 dollar difference in price. I believe TP is the OEM supplier for Fantom Racing. Hence the similarities.

OK, what if I can get the G4 5200 50C for just a little more than the 4000's?
That extra 10C wouldn't hurt would it?
By they way Happy New Year everyone & thanks.
