Default Locate NiMH batteries

I have some planes I still fly with NiMH batteries but am having trouble finding replacements. Specifically I am looking for 8 cell 9.6v 2/3A 1100mAh. That battery by ElectriFly is no longer being carried by Tower Hobby. Any suggestions where I can locate this battery at a reasonable price??

Looks as if 1100 is hard to find. Get these guys to make you an 8-cell 1500 pack http://www.cheapbatterypacks.com/pro...-1500-23A.aspx

Maybe these guys have 'em: http://www.barrysbatteries.com/produ...r-WattAge.html

Use a 3s lipo and take it easy on throttle.

Or better still get a 3S LiFe pack and go nuts.
