    Lipo flight pack with mamba monster 2200

    So I have a mamba monster 2200kv on the way to me and I'm looking at batteries to buy. I found a good deal on a Venom 5s 5000mAh 25c lipo but it says flight pack on it. Other than putting a Traxxas plug on it, would it work with the MM 2200? I just don't really know what the difference is on a "flight pack"

    Lipo is Lipo, it will work just fine if it fits. This one in particular was just made to fit a specific Heli. If your running 5s with a MMM/2200 in slash 4x4 you will most likely take flight anyhow!

    I'm a broke mo fo and Rc cars are just to waste time when I'm not doing my real hobby. With that said the lipo I posted about above is all I can afford cause I can get one for a good deal.
    I know the 2200kv needs 125amps minimum to run on and that lipo above is 125amps constant 25c x 5000mAh / 1000 =125

    Yeah but I still wouldn't run run a 25c. It's not going to be enough power for that beastly motor. Just because it should work doesn't mean it will. And if your not willing to pay a little more money right now then you might regret it when you have to pay ecen more money to fix stuff.

    125amps is just the minimum there a little more like 150amps would be better and help the lipos last a longer life instead of pushing them to their limit at 125amps.

    25C on 5s or 6s is fine,4s marginal 2s or 3s not fine. You have to look at the entire equation including VDC, mAh rating and C rating and remember that ohms law dictates that when voltage goes up current goes down.

    Slash 4x4 max motor load=1200W and thats pushing it with lead in the front end pulling another dead car back to the pit.

    1200W/18.5V=64.86 amps
    5000mAh=5amps
    64.86/5=12.97C
    12.97x1.4=18.16C peak

    Yes its capable but not ideal. Just like the velenion motor. Its capable of running lipos but not ideal. Its prone to over heating. If I was gonna buy aftermarket lipos I would get something with a higher c rating. I have 2 traxxas 3s lipos running my mamba monster and 2200kv motor. They aren't the best but I'm waiting for the gens ace lipos to become available.
