so i have been using ion batteries since the last 12 years and have had great luck with them , but recently one of my model buddies told me i should start using A123, i ve seen these batteries in the past, but never really paid much attrention to them, but now im being told the 123 are far superior than the ion, just wanted to hear from some of the giants fan, what are u guys running, any imput would be appreciated, im mainly flying 40% planes

Any one flying a pilot yak 54 37.5 with a Da 170 ? im more into freestyle and 3D, what set up are u using? size prop headers and cans, i was talking to a fellow member and he was suggesting that the GP-176 Evo is a WAY better motor that the DA 170, any feedback on this would be appreciated, im about to dump almost 2200 on motor and headers, also in using the smart fly eq6 turbo, is it safe to use the pin flag? or just go with the switches? wiht the pinflag i cant really check my batt voltage thanks

just got a da 170 for my yak 54 plane, looking for a good set of cans for this engine, i mainly do free style and plenty of 3D flying, need someting that will not kill my mid range, someting that is responsive throught the rev range

also can anyone give some advice on any switches for your receiver, i am currently using a smart fly pin thats turn everything on, im being told that using that method is not safe because, its still drainging the batteries even when not is use. any help thanks Carlton
