    The Glacier came from Buddy RC. I actually bought the Pulse used. Both of those batteries were bought for a Goblin helicopter that I no longer have, but they fit in the T-Rex better than what I had been using. The Goblin had a very narrow tray and the Pulse and Glacier were about all I could find at the time in a 6S 5000mah that would fit. I bought the one Glacier to check the fit and when I got it and it slid right in, I went to buy another and they were out of stock. That's how I ended up with the used Pulse. There was nothing else out there at the time. I was very reluctant to buy a used LiPo, but I cycled it when I got it and the Internal Resistance checked better than any other pack I had.

    Looking good if you are installing a ZDZ 180 what are you removing that makes the ZDZ that much better.
     
  4. Thank you. Pulling a DA150 off the front. I love the power of my other 180 on my 3DHS 330LX and it is 3.5 lbs heavier than the Carden is.

    A lot of people are saying good things about the ZDZ engines. Will a good winter project. If I am not mistaken the North American dealer just called it quites are am I mistaken.

    Yes, but I read another guy is taking over here in the states ! My buddy that I fly with has a Yak with a ZDZ 80 on it but we have just a few things to do on it before we can start it up !! He said it is a very powerful eng, so we'll see one of these days !!

    Oh, here is the guy supposedly taking the ZDZ line over ! Just his email address till he gets his Website up !

  7. Joe got tired of dealing with all of the butt heads that wined about everything. Hoping the new vendor is as good as Joe and Nicole were.

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    For what it is worth, Joe and Nicole are two of the most decent people anyone will ever meet. Though I am not a ZDZ subscriber, I know many who are and really love them. Hopefully the new distributor will be as passionate as Joe was.

    Never had the chance to deal with Joe and Nicole but I had first had experience of what you called but heads, at JoeNall while buying a motor at from a dealer standing at the counter had several people come and complain about their motors and it was painful to listen to. They were the expert telling the supplier what was wrong but they could not get it to run and believed that after several years that he owed them a new motor. And on top of that it looked like the motor was dragged behind the car for a day.
     
  10. Exactly the kind of people that they were dealing with. It is to bad that a few people will cause good companies to close their doors.
