Default Battery Pack For M11

What rechargable battery pack is everyone using for the m11. I am tired of buying batteries. Its 20 bucks a pop on the disposable lithiums.

If I go lipo do I have to regulate it some how? I have heard some horror stories on using lipo with the radio.

The cost savings over the long run make a lipo well worth the money.

Before i sold my M11 I was using the Protek lipo, awesome little battery holds a charge forever. [cheap too]

And no, you dont have to regulate it for a radio, which is a big plus

They make a great lipo that has killer 'run' time, and is lighter. They also offer a super simple wall charger.

Stupid question. So if I go with lipo does it need to be regulated and how do you do that. Sorry I just know the answer to this.

Just plug the 3s pack in and you're good to go. Nothing else needed. I use the lipo pack from Common Sense.
