Default Saddle Lipo pack building

I saw a thread a while that showed how to build a saddle pack lipo out of really cheap lipos available on hobby city for $15 apiece.

I did a search and couldn't find it! Any ideas...

its really not worth the hassle. back when there were not to many saddles to be found i bought some loose cells from max amps omg what a pain in the ass. you absolutly have to have a volt meter with you when doing this cuz if one cell is off and you put two cells together that arnt the same look out. i melted a few packs and the bad news is they are not warrantied. if you build your own saddles then dont plan on having to many friends come by your pit. everyone tends to stay away waiting for the boom. i thought i could save money doing it myself but with the kind of packs and prices that are available just buy them. yeah it might only cost you 40 dollars for the cells 6 bucks for shrink wrap. 3 bucks for wire 3 bucks for a deans. and oh yeah your time building it....pricessly lost.
