I ordered a 2 cell lipo for under $4 and got it in less than 2 weeks. I was leery at first but they really delivered. Now I feel comfortable placing a larger order with them.

Considering all the RC stuff comimng out of China via thousands of distributers and web sites are actually all made by a handful of factories in Shenzhen province. Some products are custom orders for certain resellers but mostly it is just rebranding identical items. BTW, China does not recognize patent, copyright and trademark laws internally.

Not Bad!

I caught a glimpse of their Christmas LiPo Sale... thought it said Buy 1 Get 1 Free... I almost bought out the store.

Luckily I looked closer and saw it was Buy 5....

Oh Well, still not bad at all if you're planning on getting started with LiPo's.

Thanks for the Link

The most disturbing part is the dead-ringer Scorpion Knock offs... but if you look at the ratings on the motors you know they are suspect - I have a 4020-10 rated to 90A I am working with and their version - seemingly identical down to the serial number etching, is only rated at 50a.

Suspect to say the least.

That being said I am a sucker for a cheap LiPo - I might buy a handful of the 1000mAh 3S's for my profile foamies

Emax HL2215-450

US$4.86 Available

Just got my second order. Two 30 Amp ESCes for $10 (including shipping). Very fast shipping and at giveaway prices. Can't be beat!

They still could be from the same manufacturer and identical parts. Remeber that the only difference between most Generics and their Brand-name counterparts is the advertising and label. Perhaps the alleged knock-off is simply being conservative with their Amp rating. I've worked in alot of manufacturing plants and know that identical items are sent to different resellers all the time and that identical items can differ greatly in price and advertised specs.

Yep, just look at the Suppo 2212-6. I can find this exact same motor at about 20 vendors, most with their own label on it. In the end it's still the same motor made by the same factory in China.

Not sure if you've ever seen or used a Scorpion but the design, materials and milling is top-notch, so the aren't what I would call a "generic" manufacturer.

At any rate I plan to grab one or two and see. It can also be said that two Chinese companies can have the same CAD/CNC specs for a device but source materials from completely different suppliers - right here I am thinking about the magnets and the bearings.

Same can be said for USA companies as well.
No two shipments of parts/raw materials are ever alike. Everyone gets bit by that old dog.
