I think I know what I'm buying..

I've done the reading,  I'm fairly confident,  but before I slap down the cash I want to check that these...

https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turni...-1000mah-3s-45-90c-lipo-pack.html

...are okay to run a pair of Hellcats or a pair of Rhinos and get a full day's play?

... And this...

.. Will charge (and feed them, care for them, and take them for walks) them no issues without any additional things and bobs.

Sorry,  I know these posts come up so often but I wanted to double check before I splash the cash.

Charger is good just make sure you read the manual carefully before use. Top battery would work for a pair of rhinos but not hellcats, bottom one will run a pair of hellcats in a semi auto, here's Boffs data sheet that gives you the pack size for different motors.

Yeah,  I know Hellcats are made for/love 3s however I want a 2s pack I can use with them to deliberately 'Nerf'  them when I need to.  With a full rewire,  custom cage and flywheels the 180s will likely be challenging competition limits. The 2s pack has a10 second peak discharge rating of 50C which should cover the Hellcats stall requirements of around 44 amps I think...

Please someone tell me if I'm being a damn fool.

You'd be better off with one of these

I would not bother running hellcats on 2s, just make your cage plug in and run lower power motors or better still use another blaster for that job.
If this is for a stryfe are you using a tray expander?
Minky

It's for a modulus with a Stryfe tray expander either side of the general area of the where the original battery tray was. I'm putting a tray through the blaster to the two expanders so space shouldn't be an issue at all.

I want flexibility with the power source because by the time I et to my first war I will have only have modded the one blaster.. And I imagine I'll be all happy and proud about it.. So if I show up with just the 3s and it's too much for whatever event it is I'll be relegated to using a stock Rampage and be really annoyed. So even if it's just for one war I want to be able to step down the performance of it if I have to.

Personally I always have a stock(ish) Stryfe on hand for such eventualities, they're about 15, so not breaking the bank. And it's a good base to build on later if you want to mod it.
Minky

Yeah I have one (the modulus and it would have to share battery doors but it's there) but I guess the point is that by that stage I will have been picking at and perfecting it for about 2-3 months, to put in the money and effort and not get to use it would be gutting. I'm tempted to get a load of barrel extenders to slow it down if it came to it 😊

EDIT: Sorry ON I must have gotten distracted reading your post, I may make the cage removable and fit Rhinos in the stock cage, but wouldn't just changing the battery work as well?
OldNoob

Not if you want to go down to 100fps or less. For that you would need either lower crush wheels like Blasterparts on the Rhinos or so slow on the 180's that they bog completely. Hellcats on 2s is like trying to drive an F1 car to Tesco, possible but unlikely to be successful (where do you put the shopping?) I would expect around 110fps at least from them on 2s, way more than even a 5kg springer.
Not using all out war blasters in stock games is always better, like TBR's stock ish Stryfe.

Loooooool! Okay. You got me.  The shopping explanation has brought it all into focus 😁

I'll come up with a plan C.

Thanks for all the input guys. Now to buy me a Lipo!

Just because its stock, doesn't mean it can't be pretty Smile
Minky

Nice! Though i'm not sure I could have one in Hulk colours and not mod it in someway.. have it fire Mega darts?  Very Happy
Dazzle740

Why not get yourself another stryfe and just rewire it and use a 2s Lipo on the stock motors for the low fps games.
Minky

That sounds doable.. May have to go for something a little more Lamborghini-ridiculous.. What I'm finding is that the more I learn about this hobby the more I find out what kind of modder I am.. And I'm the kind who looks at a Rapidstrike and thinks, 'I wonder if I could strap two Vagabonds to that...'
