Did a good run today with the new 5000mAh 7.4v packs. Good thing the DPR-II-150 worked this time. I only ran it for 8 minutes or so. The MGM TMM 16016-3s ran smooth and cool. The packs were also cool and the Aveox was cooler than yesterday. This thread is turning out to be a battery test session than a comparison of ESC. I have to give my hands to MGM on making an incredible software for the controller. I have it set up on the following modes:

A: 3 (Car mode one way)
B: 1 (Light)
C: 1 (0.13 sec.)
D: 1 (Automatic)
E: 1 (Slow reduce rpm)
F: 1 (NiCd, NiMH)
G: 1 (3%)
H: 2 (Yes)
I: 2 (Yes)
J: 1 (No)

The other setting that I tried made the ESC act funny specially the J set to very light, it didn't feel very light to me LOL. Here is the data of this run.

these cells are very good, around 3,6v @100 amps.

is the price in the flightpower range or lower?

This are the Kong Power packs. I'm trying to become the distributor here in the US, but I heard other companies have tried as well without success. I know one distributor sell the 2200mAh packs really cheap, but they don't carry the 5000mAh packs. You can buy it directly from Kong Power's website. I heard a few people are having a lot of trouble with their TP and FP. The Kong Power packs won't puff, you can go as low as 2.2v per cell and they do run cooler.

How cheap is really cheap? Do you have a link, as I would like to see the sizes of the 2200 cells.

This may seem like a basic question, but what does the different amp ratings mean?

TMM6018 vs TMM16018?

Thanks

It should means the 16018 can put out 160A and the 6018 only 60A.

Ran the truck with the MM and it seemed to have performed better on 4S than with 3S. Power to spare. It wasn't as smooth as the MGM, but it seemed to deliver a tad bit of more power. Ran it for around 8 minutes and the MM was warm and so was the batteries.

I wonder if it would be economically feasible for the smaller controllers (~25A) to incorporate a bucking switching regulator. This would allow use of 6s+ lipo and it would bring the input voltage down to 3s-4s levels. The batteries would then be cheaper since the battery current would be much lower. Not sure if the expense of the added circuits would outweigh the cost savings of the cheaper lipos...
