There is a lot of criteria including size, capacity, safety, availability and many other things. See section 8.3 starting on page 32:

Go to www.roarracing.com. Under approvals on lipos. You have the list of lipo's legal to run for ROAR racing & is probable that local clubs uses the same ruling. DL rulebook to see what is done for approval with ROAR.

Lipo's come in different prices. Stay with approved lipo.
