Hey guys, I am due to receive my lvoa c today and was wandering what battery people think is best? I currently have a 11.1v 30c 1450mah lipo but will this be too much for the Krytac to handle?Like a i just going to destroy the internals with this?

Thanks in advance

Since the motor from Krytac is amazingly strong and fast you can suffer misfeeding with a 30C lipo. If that happens you may test other batteries like a LIpo 3s 15C or even a LiPo 7.4V. Krytac shoots very well with a good lipo 7.4v (2s).

You will NOT destroy your internals, the gearbox is like a tank, the problem will be the misfeeding.

This battery runs on the edgey-edge of the red line. I get up to 24RPS on a US-Region stock config gearbox.

Hello guys!

I currently use a 11.1 (3s) 1.110mAH - 15C battery on my LVOA. A lot of people are telling me that running my lvoa on this battery will cause damage on the run and that I should stick to 7.4. 

So, is it ok to run 3s batteries? Can I use lipos over 15C? What is a safe number?

Thank you!

Hello, Owtdemun. Yes, it is OK to run 3S batteries. We recommend 15-20C discharge rate. As long as the battery you are using (11.1v 1,100mAh 15C) is operating at its advertised specifications, you should have no issues using it with your KRYTAC LVOA.

Ok.

This is the battery that is available at my local store.
[bateria-lipo-1200b-3s-15-25c-111v-turnigy-mini-tamiya-17278-D_NQ_NP_487325-MLB25435947386_032017-F]

It´s 15-25C. As I did some research, it is 15C continuos and 25C on burst mode. Is it good or should I look for something else?

Hi, I would like some recomendations as well!

I am from Brazil (and therefore my Krytac has the same specs as the USA version) and I own a Krytac Trident MK2 CRB. I play only at semi mode and use a 7,4 1200 mah lipo so there´s no issues with missfeeding, etc. Since I dont play at fun mode, I think that I don´t need a 11,1 battery. Is that right? Is there anything I am missing?

 

Thanks in advance!

Correct, you don't need a 3S pack.  2S is just fine.

When you guys recommend 15-20c, are you referring to constant? I've seen some packs that say that range, but have burst up to like 40c.

C alone means nothing.

You want Discharge in Amps total.  And you want it to be 20A minimum.

C x mah

Examples:

15C 1000mah pack gives you 15A = Not so good, usable, but it's stressing the battery.

20C 1400mah pack gives you 28A = Very Good pack...more than sufficient for draw needs.

10C 5000mah pack gives you 50A = Excellent pack for TWO Aeg's using the same pack and firing on FA.

So, with C.  Look at Constant and multiply with mah to make sure you are around 20A

Hello everyone and sorry to bring this old topic up again, but as an owner of a newly purchased LVOA-C I still have some doubts about this battery discussion!

Guges Mk 3, you made a very good point on the dependence between C-rating and battery capacity (in mAh). Regarding the part "to be 20A minimum" of your explanation, I learned that the motor won't pull more current than it needs, so 20A stands really as a minimum from which you can go up as far as you want, right? I mean, if you get a 20C, 2.0 mAh, which discharges at 40A maximum, you wouldn't be at risk of damaging your AEG, you would just possibly be wasting your money on a high discharge LiPo that would never discharge at above ~20A on a stock LVOA-C (though, it wouldn't be a complete waste of money as a 2.0 mAh battery holds a greater charge, so it would keep your AEG running for far longer than a 1.2 mAh, for example).

Then there's another question: if I get a Turnigy LiPo that says 15-25C, I read 15 is for continuous and 25 is for burst discharge (apparently nothing to do with continuous/burst fire mode). Which of those values should I consider in the calculation (C * mAh) >= 20A (or should I get the average)?

Use the lower of the two values.

And yes...the motor/system will draw what it needs.
