I have no personal experience, so can't place an answer on the cycles for you.batteries aren't something that can be returned, so be sure which ever brand you purchase. I have experience with my Zippy battery its great, i also recommended you to buy this ......

Re: Great Hobbies battery packs - any good?

I'm not a fan of the great hobbies packs. I bought the 2200 50c packs for my 450 pro that is running the -6 scorpion motor and they couldn't keep up. They would come down hot and puffing after 3.5 minutes of flight. I run the gens ace 55c and they are great. Come down only slightly warm. Howeve, I only have about 5 cycles on each so far so only time will tell but I have heard good things.

Re: Great Hobbies battery packs - any good?

Rotorquest is my supplier of Pulse ultras. 2 x 3700mah for my good 600 trex. Pulse and Gens are the same and are highly recommended!

I use 2 nano Tech 4400mah 4S for my other old trex 600. I just got 2 x 4400mah 4S from HK. They are Nanotech 65-130c! Dont ask why the wide range of discharge. Their low C batts all puffed on me slightly. I still have to try these new ones out yet.

Trex 600E Pro w/Ar7200bx and KDE 530kv on 12s
Trex 450 Sport V2 w/2010kv Scorpion 6s, Dx7s
