Heh heh... you're citing an article that Hobby King probably paid for. It's done all the time in special interest magazines.
Oh PLEASE! Not YOU TOO?
A great way of loosing credibility.
This forum is replete with a small group of tards, who when they cannot come up with a good and informed response to something, resort to accusing those who disagree with them of being shills, or "any positive article must be because of paid authors". etc.
They use the "if you can't argue about it, throw in something ridiculous..." response of the low IQ's...
You might actually WANT to check out the referenced article before sticking a foot firmly in mouth with the "HK PAID FOR" claims.
The author did NOT know ANYTHING about HK... he purchased the batteries from a U.K. vendor... duh.
Rather than argue about it I'll let the OP do some searching on his own.
Yup like the issue I cited.
If he does, he'll find dozens of articles about DOA Zippys and probably a couple other HK brands.
I believe you are confusing ARTICLES with forum posts. The latter are non-scientific, though Greg Convey's positive comments in MaxAmps are not.
And all of that is not to mention warranty service, which HK has none.
Neither does GenAce ( Nitroplanes ).
BTW: I like the GenAce too.
That must make me a "shill" for Nitroplanes... oh, wait someone said just that! I wonder WHO it was?
Of course, he'll also find some Zippy fan boys who claim that their batteries are the same as what Max Amps sells.
I think you're getting confused... "MaxAmps" is Greg's blog.
You may be referring to GenAce ( Nitroplane's brand ).
Seems like the only "load" so far has been your take on these packs.
It's too bad you had bad luck, but the reviews don't bear out your comments and neither does most end user experience.
Battery FAN BOYs? Really? Scraping the bottom of the barrel there...
If some believes that the same cells coming from the same factory, are somehow "better" because they have a different label on them, there's not much I can do for them either.
