Default Check This out!

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...0mAh_4S1P_25C_

Just purchased one of these. 68$ , 93$ express shipped, that is AMAZING! Im going to get a MAxAmps 5250 and do a head to head. My local Hobby Shop has MaxAmps so ill let you know what I find.

Even if this batter is a putz, its worth trying for 68$.

Bad link

A fellow crawler guy here buys lots of HobbyCity stuff including lipos and loves 'em. But that's in a crawler application where amp draw is practically nill.

Quite a few of us use hobbycity Zippy packs. The best value in the market. However, you do get what you pay for they usually are only good for 6 mos to a 1 year of racing. They don't stay in balance all that great, but at a 1/3rd of the cost of name brand packs, who cares?

my point exactly, the battery was 25C 4s 5000Mah Lipo for 68$. I dont race, I bet I would run it once a week or so, MAX. So I bet it lasts long enought and for 68$ I could care less. Glad to know that arent total garbage, may not be maxamps, but it dont cost max either.
