Default battery for MC-20

I have Graupner MC-20 radio system which uses an unusual battery a LILO IS6p/6000 for the transmitter battery It has gone bad and will not take a charge no longer.

Anyone know where I can get a replacement?

It is 3.7 volt battery but it looks like its 4 cells.

Call Graupner or a battery store. How old is this battery? Did the transmitter get left on and deplete the battery? There are ways of getting it back if it was depleted

Default Mc-20

I found the number for Graupner and they shipped me out a replacement battery.

Here is an interesting thing I had called another RC supply site that had advertised they had the battery in stock. When I tried to order it they said they could not mail it to me unless it was in a piece of equipment.....new rules they said, HUH? yup he said government says they cannot ship lipo batteries unless its installed in a piece of equipment.
So just for fun I went on Hobby King web site and they were glad to ship a battery out to me.......guess they have a different government
