How about some tests on 5000 mAh 2s LiPos? Virtually nobody in the Electric On-Road section uses 2200 mAh 3s LiPos. Not sure that you can extrapolate this to all other packs in a manufacturer's product line.

Actually having tested some of these packs (2s 5000 versions) myself on a GFX at 30amps I would say the results are much the same if not then the spread would most likely be greater.

The one thing that these tests don't tell you is how many performance cycles you get. This is the bigger topic these days as we all hate cells that lose power quickly or worse still, puff up after 1 month.

GensAce batteries rock! I used to use Thunder Power, but now I'm using the GensAce 2600mAh 25C batteries in my Reactor Bipe and AddictionX 3D model planes. So far, I have over 170 recharge cycles on them over the last 6 months and I don't notice any performance degradation or puffing -- they still have amazing "punch"! Take a close look at those benchmarks test plots -- notice that the GensAce "25C" battery performs very nearly equal to the Thunder Power "45C" and the GensAce batteries stay cooler too! For price/performance, I think GensAce is hard to beat. --Wayne
