    Comprehensive List of Electric Flight Components with Specifications, Prices, & Comparative Data

    With the hundreds of product choices that are out there these days it has become an exhaustive task to even locate all the options which exist.

    In order to save everyone the time of seeking out information on all the available lipos, ESCs, etc. out there, I decided to share the data that I have compiled including a comprehensive list of every available lipo from 2S and 150 mAh to 15S and 10,000 mAh. All the major brands are included such as Thunder Power, FlightPower, Kong Power, Hyperion, CommonSenseRC, TrueRC, Tenergy, AirThunder, MaxAmps, PolyQuest, Neu, Tanic, etc. There are also extensive lists of available gyros, ESCs, motors, and other RC flight related components.

    It is in spreadsheet format and allows you to sort by headings as well as filter the given results. Outside of normal statistics (weight, dimensions, price, etc.) there are columns which allow you to sort to determine which battery offers the most bang for the buck (capacity per dollar) or capacity per weight (mAh/gram).

    The product lists will be updated frequently with new products as they become available. Check it out here:

    http://progressiverc.com/Research.html

    Feedback on this work in progress would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know what you would like to see added and information posted in this thread will be updated to the website. So, if you'd like to see a product that I am missing, you see a stat that is wrong, or if you know where you can find an item for a lower price please post it here.

    I have recently added the balance connector type as part of the description for each battery as suggested by another user. Here is a partial screenshot of the 3S LiPo battery list filtered by "2100 mAh" and sorted by mAh per gram as an example of what's available:



    If you see any updates or revisions that need to be made please let me know. Here is a table which shows the number of unique items currently listed:



    Cheers!

    It is invaluable if you shop like me. It takes me a long time to make hand written spreadsheets. This saves me a lot of time/money.

    It should be a sticky in the batts/chargers as well. Thanks to you , and Welcome to RCU.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence and welcoming - I am glad I could help out! This research stems from my own habit of searching for products and comparing data and I am glad to share it with others.

    It is also a good recommendation to include this with the batteries and chargers, since it may be more applicable there. I believe that the lists are current with every available charger and lipo available (and many that are discontinued) with there specifications, price, and a link. I will ask a moderator if it can be moved over there - cheers!

    Write2dgray:

    Really nice work here. I used to keep a somewhat similar compilation of info on servo's, for my own use. The listing is now very much out of date. Your listing on the LiPo's is really very valuable to me as I can check on both the weight and dimension(s) of a pack and compare it to what I am using now. Some of my models can only accept certain size packs. Thanks for your efforts.

    Thanks Red - I'll continue to update and develop the lists to make it easier for folks to find information on electric flight components. Please feel free to contribute products (links help !) and suggestions to improve the information provided.

    I have added some new lipos from FMA Cellpro and DualSky to the list and added hundreds of new motors which now include the complete lines from Plettenburg, Neu, Scorpion, Hyperion, ARC, DualSky, Kontronik, AXI, MotrolFly, Razor, RS-Motoren, and many others - enjoy!

    All the lists have been updated to include many new products and the motor list has been expanded to include every motor from Hobbycity/United Hobbies. The complete lines from many other manufacturers including Mega Motors, MP Jet, MicroDAN, Torcman, Suppo, Turnigy were added and there are now over 1200 motors listed in total. Columns can be sorted in the spreadsheets by clicking on the column headings. Enjoy!

    I just got through updating the lists with many new lipos, ESCs, and motors. All the brushless motors from E-Flite have been added to the list as well as the complete updated line from Medusa Research. There are now over 1400 different motors listed! Let me know if you guys see anything else that needs to get added and help me and your fellow hobbyists out by posting up a link.

    Well guys, it looks like Align will be carrying lipos with your choice of either ThunderPower or JST-XH balance connectors on their new packs. I have added all their new lipos to the lists by model number with the balance connector type indicated. Lots of other products have also been added including 100s of servos. Here's a recap of what's listed:

    Another huge round of updates has been made to many of the lists:

    http://progressiverc.com/Research.html



    Revisions include newly added links for manuals, a new page for dedicated discharge devices, as well as the following category revisions:

    Batteries - Lots of new brand son the market, hundreds of new 25C and 30C lipos, and some new A123 cells from K2.

    Brushless Motors - Too many to list, over 300 added including many new offerings from Scorpion, Free Air, Hurricane Flight Systems, Hyperion, and dozens of smaller brands.

    Brushless ESCs - New ESCs with switching BECs from many of the top manufacturers including E-Flite, AirPower, Extreme Flight, Hurricane Flight Systems, Hyperion, Mega Power (with data logging like the Jeti Spins), Mystery, Rite Hobby, and Scorpion. A field for BEC type specification has been added for ESCs to designate linear or switching type BEC. Also added are many new larger ESCs in the 60-120 amp range and some new HV ESCs.

    Gyros - One dozen new gyros that have recently hit the market.

    Chargers - New products from Bantam, iCharger, DN Power, E-Flite, Integy, and Schulze. A column has also been added to show input voltage range and discharge specifications.

    Balancers - More than a dozen new balancers including a new offering from Bantam, models with digital displays, and a 12S, 10A balancer from MegaPower.

    Too many changes to list, another small step towards providing a comprehensive list of products in this ever-changing world of RC products. Exciting times - enjoy and have fun flying!

    David

    It is very important for us to know about different products related to electricity and innovations. Because all these are helpful for us in order to promote our knowledge. We must all share our info that we have related to anything. This will be helpful for un in order to spread info.

    A smart charger is another name for a microprocessor controlled charger. These chargers are designed to work only with smart batteries from the same manufacturer. This is because the smart batteries contain special microchips that are programmed to communicate with a smart charger of the same brand.
