I use the 2100 3 cell and it is great. It def last longer than some of the other lipo's i am using. The price and quality is pretty close or better than some of the high end batteries.

Like the old saying " YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET" I have gotten cheap ones and they do not last. After buying cheap on after another i was wasting my money and finaly baught a decent ESC and never had to replace it yet.

Default Like I always say.

A high price does not guarentee quality. It only guarentees a high price.

My Timex is as accurate and LONGER lasting with NO returns than a Rolex.
!5 years of abuse and original.

Of course not but Pulso is not high priced at all, do you get a 1 year warranty with the cheap ESC off eBay i don't think so. There is a reason why we can offer that, because we know that the quality of our products is up to scratch and will hold up to the spec that we state.

Independent result and reviews of Pulso will be posted asap as they are being test as we speak.

My feelings exactly.

How about the support issue ? Castle Creations are the best for that.

BTW your $100 list price for the Phoenix 35 is misleading as you can normally get it for around $85 -- well worth it, expecially with the CastleLink programming. That is probably not a fair comparison to the full-featureed Phoenix 35. A better comparison should be the CC Thunderbird 36 at about $42. Made and supported in the USA. For about $4 more, a real bargan.

As a data point the Pulso ESCs are not junk. I have a couple of the 11A controls and am -very- happy with them.

The 11A models are available through a couple of US vendors including WF member 'The Don' for $18 shipped.

Be aware these Pulso controls require a program card to change anything on the settings from default. The card is the same as a Jeti card.

Default The same ?

TW. Are Jeti and Pulso the same?

Pulso is to be just as good, but at a lower price ?
You linked the 2 together by saying they use the same programing card.

No they are not the same I'd wager.

All I said was they use the same programming card. My guess would be that the Chinese manufacturer simply cloned the Jeti.

When you say it lasts longer, does that mean a few minutes longer flight or 500 to 600 cycles, will last a couple of years as my cells have done in the past.

Not true with a lot of the "new" people on the block.

Why do all the "new" ones furnish the test after we purchase the product.

Do the test then show me what you have.

Both, I don't buy the car then test drive it.

You want to sell me a battery, cheap or expensive, tell me up front about it. Don't expect me to purchase it and then see what you have to say about it and your tests.
Anyone can put up a pretty face on the internet. Show me the facts.

Problem is that there are too many batteries out there and if I don't see the facts first, I don't try yours.

Truthfuly? Dismantled Dewalts 36 volt packs.

Polyquest, Thunder power, Etec, Kokam, will be trying the new FMA line also. Heck I even have some Electrify.

When I get a pack I run my on tests any way. CBA II. I even fly some of them.

It would help if you stick to one style pack and fly it for a while.

I been doing it for about four-five years as electric now. The ones I named are the ones I have tried in the past. The Etecs are the oldest and they never had balancing taps. The some of the Kokams have taps that I added to balance as a test to see if it would make a difference. Didn't bother with taps on the two cell packs.

These were little wires hanging out the side of the packs so I could access the cells individualy. This was at Reds suggestion. I think I have the right mentor as far as suggestions go. He tests cells for others who test their product before they market it.

Don't fly the three times a week that I used to, but the packs that I named have many hours on them.

Comment: Haven't had a fire yet. Must be the way I charge my stuff on the bench, not at the field. I have enough batteries that I don't need to do that.
