Default Ballpark Lipo Run-time

What run times are you getting with each size? Trying to decide what to purchase

180mah > 10 min?

240mah > 17-20min???


350mah > 25-35min?


these are just my best guess for 7.4v lipo

Let me know your experiences
thanks

I run a 1s 300mah with a 100t predator and get 20-30 minutes. Plenty of power and super low speed crawl control but no speed to bump over obstacles. I think a 3ch with a series parallel switch to go from 1s to 2s would be ideal. The best part is that you can find 1s batteries for under $3.00

thanks, so about 30 min for a 350
the 2s batts that I found are also only about $4, nice and cheap

I am running the tigers TE-B920, 2s 230mAh. I guess about 30min or so of desk crawling. I play on my desk at work at lunch. I got 2 of them off of ebay for like $10 from hong kong. And they fit n the stock location.

30 min is the magic number for me, by then you are tired of driving anyway.

I ordered what looks like the same one from value hobby at a good price

I've got a set of the Zippy Flightmax 350mAh batteries. I use them in my modded Micro-T for run times around 30-45 minutes depending on my driving style. Last night my crawler came in and I quickly soldered the connections for those same batteries and ran it for a solid 35+ minutes runtime. We actually drove it around on the same pack for an hour and ten minutes before it finally slowed down with down time spent building stuff to crawl over ;) I pulled it and tossed it on the charger to find it still at 6.6V too. I love the 350mAh packs for the long runtimes and they really don't seem that big. I got mine for just under $5 a piece from 84Hobby.com though it looks like the price is up to $5.30ea which is still a good deal.
