Has anybody tried Swift Current LiPo's yet?

I see from Terranova Hobby, that he has brought in some soft packs for us air guys. Has anybody got any experience with them? The car guys seem to really like them, which is why I thought I'd post in the electric flight section. Any comments would be greatly appreciated...I'm sick of the Hobbyking and China shipping shenanigans, so it would be nice to find a reliable Canadian supplier!

I use them in my crawlers and love them, I just ordered some for my planes. Ive yet to have any balance or charging issues with my crawler batteries so I imagine the soft packs will be great as well.

Re: Has anybody tried Swift Current LiPo's yet?

I bought two 4 cell 2200mAh packs this spring. Unfortunately I left the first one in my plane powered up for 3 days after a flight. It was down to 9 volts when I remembered it so I put it on a trickle charge until it was up to nominal voltage, then put it on regular charge. It seems fine. No puffing up at all and performed good this afternoon.
