Question for lippo packs.

Does anyone have a part # or a pack that fits the g4s? I want to see what the cost is to transfer over to lipo. I know nothing about batteries by the way so sorry for looking like a complete idiot on the subject.

I saw a venom pack on tower hobbies but not sure if this is the right thing:

Try these,

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXPCR8&P=SM

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXJJF6&P=7

Regulator and 800mAh Li-Po.
Fits nicely into the arear where the stock battery fits.

You wont be able to use the stock battery mount and you will also have to dremel a little from the top deck. (I would dremel towards the front of the deck to make it fit.

Where you put the regulator is a personal choice. I put mine on the transponder mount. Run the connecting wires to the battery along the top of the top-deck. Have the wires from the battery come out from the top of the deck. Then they fit nicely to the reg'.

You may have to cut down the reg' wires as they are a little long and fit a connector to fit the battery connector.

Don't make the mystake I made...!... one day, in a rush I plugged the Li-Po charger in to the battery and started to charge, only to realize I was charging it through the regulator!!!
That ruined the regulator in a rush.!!

Hope this helps

The voltage you are measuring is this measured bench test or ??? Getting the servos into fail safe position with Spektrum has been a pain once set. I would like a little adjustment getting it just right . Does anyone know easier way? Or else throttle return spring on order.

Ideally, I would also get a balncer. But you don't really need one.

That's what a throttle return spring is for. (mechanical fail-safe) I also experienced the no power regulator cut, but only after running a discharged battery I forgot to charge for 5+ minutes!

[QUOTE= Keep it insulated from the chassis and you will be OK.[/QUOTE]

Mounting it on its side like gansei or in the receiver location is good in this regard, I've raced some hella hot days this year and haven't had any issues.
