Default What LiPo should I use????



I was planning on buying a new plane that is 79" wingspan from banana hobby and they want to charge me over 200 dollars just for 2 sets of batteries. The plane says it needs 2 14.8V 4S 2200mah 20C Li-Polymer. Obviously i dont want to pay 300 for a plane and 200 for batteries so i was just wondering what batteries i could buy that would work for the plane and not cost me an arm and a leg. Also i was looking around and it says the plane needs 20C and i cant really find any but i have found quite a few 25C, if i use these then whats the difference?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

You can probably do a lot better (at least on price) with Hobbyking or hobbypartz for your batts. The 20C rating is a "minimum" so using anything over 20C is a good thing. The difference is the pack's current capability during a fast discharge. I'm not sure how close to the 20C that plane is going to be , but there's nothing wrong with buying a bit too much "C" in your battery other than it may cost a bit more.

You'll need 4 - 4sx2200 packs , right.

Hope this search comes thu ok. (don't get the "B" grade packs) http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbycity/s...on=1&x=70&y=16
