what is a good lipo battery for a starter box? I have the charger (ice) and if I can do away with the big battery in my starter box, and having to charge it all the time, this sounds like something I should look into.

Oh ya, it is the ofna chrome top with 2 motors....


Thanks

That I have done.. and my buddies too. We run 4s lipos in our starter boxes... works great.

Cam is one of the guys... and I think he sold one to a guy in Omaha last summer... not sure who?

No matter what lipo you run it will be easier to over discharge it in a starter
box so keep an eye on it.2 min before the main and rc won't start so keep trying to start could = dead lipo.Just repeak it and be safe all day and save your money.
