Default They're Baaaack!

Hobby City/Hobby King FINALLY has the Zippy Flightmax 4000mah 25C Hardpack LIPO's back in stock after being backordered for several months. At $27 a pop they are an awesome deal.

Here's a link: http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...25C_Car_Lipoly

They show over 1500 in stock so hopefully they will be available for a while.

They had some bad reviews during the last half of December and January. I guess they had some bad quality control, but it was all about poor solder connections not bad cells. All of the recent reviews have been positive. At 27 bucks it's worth redoing the solder joints anyway. I've looked EVERYWHERE in the last few months and nobody comes even CLOSE to this deal on a hardpack. I ordered 4 packs and will probably do a second order later on if they remain in stock.

I have 4 Zippy "H" 3S 20C 2200Mah lipos for my Parkzone P28 Trojan airplane, and they work better than the 2200Mah batteries that I get from Horizon. I'm not sure if that sets anyone's mind at ease, but I would never hesitate to order a zippy for any of my RC's after the positive experience that I have had thus far.
