"They are hot sellers so be quick when they are in stock."

This is the reason I would rather import lipos myself. All well priced lipo brands are ALLWAYS out of stock on any local online store. Never in stock when u need them.

Our first shipment of 3300mah sold out in 2 days . We will soon have stock at all times. 2nd shipment arriving soon.

We apologias for this and hope to satisfy your needs further. The demand for batteries in SA was higher than expected.

HK also run out of stock.... [-X

Gens Ace Batteries are made fresh and quality cant be compared to HK.

Hold it. U reading it wrong. Not talking about Goblin hobbies here. Saying this is the case with other online stores. Never in stock. I understand U just testing waters. Just giving advice. Try to have a bit more stock. Not nice if its never in stock. Now and then is fully understandable. All stores are like that. But if its only available 30 days in a year its a waste...

Also u leting it sound like this is going to be the case here with your statement. Like its always going to be out of stock quick...

I don't think stock will be a issue in future, demand is just crazy at the moment cauz the performance and price is like nothing seen on local shores.

I am Busy changing all my lipos over to gens ace, been testing them in the 500 and in the fusion at the central fly inn in bloem and the performance is second to none.

Was just a comment. So good to hear Brad. Im also impressed by the lipos. Have not tried them yet. But the ones if seen that Chris bought looks very good quality on the outside. The picture does not do it justice at all. Very strong outer clear covering on

Been flying the new 12s 5000mAh 45C on the TDRs and thus far very impressed (Peter has an issue with balancing his pack but maybe it needs some more cycles - mine also took a while to balance but seems better now), but we need some more testing to see what the IR does - this has a huge effect on C rating. First impression is that their performance are on par with the TP 65C. I'm also waiting to see if Paul can get the 5000mAh 60C ones in a size that can fit the TDR and Goblin as they are currently too high at 64mm. Also tested the 3300 mAh 25C in the T500 and these have the same performance as 40Cs. These batts looks like winners and with local support and recourse if there's a problem with them one cannot beat their value IMHO. We just need stock, but I'm sure Paul will sort this out.

Posted by Sheraaz CT on 11th Apr 2012

Been flying with GA's 3,4 and 5S packs sometimes upto 3 x per week for aprox. 8 months. Balance charge them at 4c! no signs of puffing up, consistant flight performance upto 90% of flight duration, sometimes only 15% remaining charge, still out performs my other higher C rating brands. If ur looking for Quality, reliable performance, longevity and down right good looks.....can't beat em, awesome!! [and no ;-)...i'm not getting any discounts from Goblin] hope to get some from them soon tho! Well priced Goblin!

Are you going to be getting or can you get 5000mah + 2 cell (non-hardcase type) with a high C rating like a 50C+. I need batteries for my EDF's and I need high C rated Batteries.

That's good to know, is there a list that shows all the sizes you can source? I looked on "a" Gen Ace website but could find a list
