I am not trying to be a hater, but I am not convinced these are any different than the Tenergy 130mah cells. I...

It doesn't look like it will hover in the fashion of a over powered 3D plane...like in the video, I am hearing it will a little bit but basically it's more of a sport plane.

Use the AR6100E, it makes it much easier. I had a AR6100 in mine and it worked, but it made routing the wires a bit of a pain. The AR6100E solved that and everything fits nice and tidy.
