Default 5S Lipo recommendations for Vorza Flux

Hi everyone

I have a Vorza Flux which I have resurrected from a few years of retirement and are looking to get a couple of new 5S packs for. It seems that options for 5S are limited vs other cell arrangements so I am looking for advice on whats out there and recommended today. I previously used the Turnigy Nano-Tech 65c 5000mah 5s packs but apparently they are now discontinued. Here is what I managed to find as available options. The Gens Ace looks pretty good as they are 45c and light. The SMC 4500 also looks good however I would prefer 5000mah if possible. Thunderpowers look good but also very pricey. I just want something reliable, consistant and punchy. I generally only charge at 1S or 2s max. I just use the can for high speed park use. No racing.

I used GensAce battery, it is a very good battery. Round 2 was extremely fun and Gens Ace batteries helped me get a spot on the podium. I achieved 3rd place with my Axial Bomber in the main powered by a Gens ace 2s 5000mah lipo.

Thanks. It looks like the ability to buy lipo's online and shipped from OS to Australia has changed in the last few years. I might have fewer options than I had originally thought.

Where do people buy LIPO's online these days for Australia delivery besides hobby king? Any suggestions on where I can buy that 5S Gens Ace mentioned earlier?

I bought Gens Ace from their official online shop, I don't know where can you buy Gens Ace 5S Lipo in Australia, I heard there is a dealer of Gens Ace battery, website is hobbiesaustralia. com . au, you can have a try. But if this shop don't have the Gens Ace battery, you'd better ask the Gens Ace official online shop for help.
