Default Turnigy or Zippy Flightmax lipos

Has anyone used Turnigy or Zippy Flightmax lipos? They are so cheap I am a little scared to try them. Any problems with them?

I love them. all my packs are Turnigy or Zippy...I have had 0 zero problems. At the low price you could have a problem and still come out ahead..Probably the same thing as the big names with a different label on them...I stock up on 1500ma 11.1 and 2200 ma 11.1 from Hobby King...

Turnigy batteries rock, especially the Nanotechs.

I want to try some of those....Do you get longer run time or just a more flat discharge with them?

I've noticed better power and more power late in the flight.  I'm flying Intermediate Pattern with a SebArt Angel-S 50.  I'm comparing Rhino 3700's (20C) , Turnigh 3600's (30C), and Turnigy NanoTech 4500's (25C).  The Rhinos are good, the Turnigy's are better and the NanoTechs are best.  If I know what I know now, I would have bought NanoTech 25C 4000's and saved a few bucks and grams.

My 2M Genesis I'b building is getting 10S (2x5S) Turnigy Nanotech 4000's.  Same weight as the Zippy Flightmax 15C 4400's.  My flying buddy Roin Van Putte says the NanoTech 25C 4000s pack more punch in his Genesis than the Flightmax 4400's.  BTW, Ron is flying Masters.

I use Turnigy batteries and they're great! The only problem I come across is the 10AWG wire! Seriously, is it neccesary? Trying to solder an EC3 connector to that large a wire is a pain! It's doable, but it's a pain- having to shave off some strands of bare wire just to get them to fit., ugh! I've thought about changing over to EC5's but haven't made that jump yet.
