Nano Tech 180 25-40C, 13.25grams

Nano Tech 260 35-70C, 16.25 grams

Gens ace 450 25C, 27.6 grams, as a reference point for punch.
Both planes using an 8040 DD prop from GWS
Epp Click NG runs lite combo from Twisted
FoamStar Arrow running JR servos and Turnigy motor/esc
I feel both perform almost equally for power, no discernable difference to me.

After an evening of testing we ran about 8 180 Nano Tech packs equally through both planes, no problem whatsoever with their authority with the throttle.
The 260's we ran another 8 or 10, and I did not see the difference in weight of 3 grams making a difference.The extra run time was nice but really not noticeable since both last at least well beyond five minutes.
450's as a benchmark, they may have a little more punch BUT they are too heavy and you can tell your adjusting for the weight. The sound of the punch is absolutely overcome by the weight.

Also had some last years GH 250 packs, they had absolutely no punch to them, barely climbing out of a hover to the ceiling. These were the same age and storage as well as useage as the 260 Nano Tech's.

Conclusion: If it were a contest I would use the 180 over the 260 to save 3 grams. If I was ordering more tomorrow - I'd likely order both 180 and 260's and since they work so well I don't see the need to spend more than the cost of these bats. Additionally I really didn't know if the 180's would be adequate for the job - this experiment showed that they were very suitable for up to a 140gram model.

Re: Blue Foamie

Fun day at the gym today. After a few passes in knife edge flight, some inverted circuts and some 1/2 Cuban 8's Gaston managed a few inverted crashes. He discovered that the Arrow canopy was tall enough to give prop clearance to for a drag the canopy taxi back to the glue gun. On one trip to the glue gun Gaston stopped by his "Tickle Trunk" (apologies to Mr. Dressup) and re-appeared with skyward gear. Then began intensive testing of the new Inverted Landing Option. He eventually got better upside down than right side up. Could the Carden Pro with the 200cc be next, in the Freestyle event?

Re: Blue Foamie

Too funny Gaston
I suggest the Carden remain stock, or with retracts.
Good post Hugh!

Re: Blue Foamie

Thanks Hugh
It took me a while to do some decent landings, it's not as easy as one would think. It's a challenge but also a lot of fun, it entices you to do a lot of inverted flying which someday could become handy.
I think the Carden will stay as is for now, I'm hoping it doesn't land upside down...
