Thanks, so should I get a 30C? Looks like everything is on backorder so might be a mute point. How do the Turnigy compare to the Gen Ace?

I've owned several brands including Turnigy, Kypom, Rhino, etc. Gens Ace is the best hands down... it's all I use! IMHO they have better construction, lower internal resistance, 5C charge rated, and the 30C discharge rating is for real. Gens Ace really punch above their advertised specs.

I normally buy Gens Ace from Hobbypartz in the USA, but now Rotorquest (Toronto. ON) is carrying them so you can order them locally:

The 3S 2200mAh are just slightly longer than the Parkzone 1800mAh pack.

All my Nanos have puffed. the 3s right up to the 6s. I bought some GensAce 6s and 3s. GensAce has a very nice bettery! RotorQuest sells them now.
