Default orion lipo packs

has anyone heard whether or not they plan to release a saddle pack version of their lipo battery? it would be nice with all the 4wd chassis' out there that could utilize this product.

They've become really quiet lately about upcoming products. Even in the thread that MrBlack was quite active in has been silent.

With AE releasing the B44 and Rick Hohwart taking a job at Reedy, I'd say it's a safe bet that Reedy will come out with some nice saddle pack lipos in the not-so-distant future.

I hope they disclose their cell source when they do.

Orion has said in the past that there's not enough demand to warrant making a saddle pack, but they recently hinted that they were working on some new stuff so who knows...

Gee, I sure hope so! I'm waiting for them to announce whatever new thing they have in the pipeline, then I am going to BUY BUY BUY!!!

I've heard they also have a Lipo that has the same dimensions as the 3200 but with larger capacity...
