Yes, being one of the largest suppliers of Li-Poly batteries in the world we have done all of our homework over the past few months of due diligence and just love the performance we are getting out of these new packs.

Recently have had the balance plugs updated to conform with the most popular balancers too.

Thanks and good winds!

I'm not sure, but I think that might be the first time I've seen someone quote a press release containing their own quote. Technically, is that a variation on talking to yourself?

Usually some minion pr flack sends out the press release, quoting the big wig. I know it's a genre thang and all that, but I don't usually see the wig quoting the toupee!
