Turnigy 4000mAh 2S 30C hardcase pack

Well I picked up a pair of these out of the USA warehouse . All I an say is wow the value of these packs are great they have nice thick wires and can definitely dump the amps with very little voltage sag . Probably the most notable thing is that these packs live up to there rated capacity  But I don't plan to buy anymore of these after trying the Zippy 4000mah because the case an finish is much better in my opinion .

This pack has a Relative Amp 30C x 4A = 120rA 
$19.99 / 120rA = 0.166cE the lower the number the more Cost Effective

Hobby King Brushless Car ESC 100A w/ Reverse (Upgrade version)

Well bought this out of the USA warehouse to replace my old esc In my ZD Racing ZMT-10 and so far I'm pretty happy for the price . According to reviews the weak point of this esc is the receiver lead and the on/off switch . So far the lead has been fine but the switch died very fast . So far it has been a cheap easy to program esc that doesn't break a sweat easy .

As time goes on I will update this but for now this esc gets a A+.

Lipo Balance Plug Savers

Well I have seen these being used by a few other hobbyist so I thought I would pick up a set just to see if they are as great of a idea as I think they are and to see how long they last .  

Well after getting these little buggers in I believe they are a great investment but don't expect to swap these between batteries they are not designed for that and will break after opening and closing them several times . The only thing I can think of to add is I think a layer of heat shrink would be good to keep out dust and to lend a bit more strength to the case. 

Where to Pick some up cheap :2S balance plug  3S balance plug

Manufacturer description :

A great device which makes plugging or un-plugging your lipoly balance charge lead much safer and more convenient, the re-usable Balance Plug Saver simply snaps onto your JST-XH balance plug to give you a decent finger grip, no more yanking on balance plug leads!

Turnigy Hex Driver set 4 in 1 1.5~ 3.0

Well bought this out of the Hobby king USA Warehouse and I like the fact that it's light and convenient to carry since it has a storage area for the bits in the handle and that it has almost perfect knurling that isn't so sharp that it starts to bug your hands after using it for a while . I do have 2 complaints though the bits are not the standard 1/4" size hex that I like to use and the finish scratches off pretty easy .

In short makes a alright main tool but I myself would use it primarily for its great mobility and use it when Im away from home.

Can be found here :

Manufacturer's description:

The Turnigy 4 in 1 Hex driver set comes with lightweight handles and includes 4 interchangeable tips 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0.
The hardened tip and shaft ensure no rounding or breaking on even the worst of hex bolts.
