    Cheap Lipo

    Hey guys. I just ordered a Trex 450 on ebay. I'm not super familiar with Electric flight so thus why I ask. Those Lip0 batteries on Ebay for heli's, are they worth it? I found TONS for under 20 bucks! I doubt they are anything amazing, but would they work for just everyday flying? They are generally 30c 2500mAh 11.1 Lipos. Any input?

    I have both 11.7 volt & 22.2 volt I bought from Hobby City both seem decent so far. The 11.7 2200 mah for my 450 is Great !!
    The two for my 500 2650's are decent. Ya can't beat them for the price

    RE: Cheap Lipo

    Alright cool guys. What are good prices for batteries? Again, I don't want anything AMAZING. Just a battery that will work well and hold a decent charge.

    Btw, this it the bird i'm hopin to buy: Does it look like a good deal?
