I am now going to have to add data for battery testing to the forum, to prove or disprove some of the theory in practice once and for all. Here is my proposed test.

Blue Stryfe, full 18AWG rewire, stock motors and microswitch for the test mule.

30 new boxed darts per set of batteries. 32 shots, top and bottom velocity discarded?

Metronome set to 110 Shots per Minute- about the max reliable speed for the chrono.

4 NiMh AA's in the tray- baseline figure

2 Fire cells and 2 dummies (new)

2 IMR Cells and 2 dummies (new)

1 2S Lipo pack (new)

Usual set of figures, eg average, standard deviation etc.

Any ideas or controls required to assist in getting the best possible data? I want this to be right as it is pretty contentious.
I think it's likely to be close at this level, simply because you are not looking at a very big jump beyond stock performance.

Audio analysis of motor whine to determine response times in lieu of current measuring? There was some done somewhere but I'm on the fire and can't be arsed to use Android's interface to find stuff.
