Default which orion lipo?

- Team Orion 2S 1P 3800mAh 30C LiPO Carbon Edition Batt
or
-Team Orion 2S 2P 5000mAh 20C LiPO Platinum 2 Ed Batt
or
- Team Orion 2S 1P 3400mAh 25C LiPO Carbon Edition Batt


charging with a hyperion 0606i ac/dc and running an xxxt-cr. mod class, 10.5 losi brushless package. Obviously the 3400 25c is cheaper, but is the 3800 30C a load better? And racing club level, i'm guessing I really don't need the platinum???

lastly, is there anything that is a tad cheaper and same quality?

I like the 3800 30c, little more rip then the 3600 25c.

but overall i am moving away from those and going with these they are 5 bucks cheaper with more rip and longer runtime.

smc 5200mah 24c lipo.

Get the 5000 or the 3800.

Orion batteries are top notch. I have been using the same 4800 in my truck now for over a year. Is still runs great and never goes out of balance.

+1.....I am with Tony on this one. The new IP batteries are pretty sweet and at a great price. You can get them a little cheaper at other places on the web also.

I have a few of the Orion 3800's and they still perform awesome on the track and have plenty of punch.
