Default Lipo stick packs

Hi

Im looking for a lipo stick-pack that fits a TL-01. Ive heard about some lipos that doesn't fit that's why i ask. It needs to be EFRA legal just in case, and amps is a bit important.


Reedy got a 3400mAh pack is that the best out there capacity wise?

And does it even fit? it looks like these dimples or what you call em might cause trouble. Lipo stick packs-714a.jpg

Found the LRP. http://www.lrp.cc/en/products/vtec-b...dcase/details/

same question, does it fit and is it legal for EFRA.

Orion has hard cased with curved edges that fit the Mini so should also fit the TL01. Think they are 3800mah not sure on the C rating.
They also have lipo stick packs up to 4000mah but 25c

Not sure if they are EFRA legal but Orion makes the Rocket Packs which come in 2400, 3000, and 4000mah stick pack configurations. I'm currently running the 3000mah in my HPI Formula 10.

Doesn't EFRA require bullet connectors or did that change?

I had a bit of a DOH! moment and simply measured the width and height.

Width: 47,3mm
Height: 25,4mm

LRP is out! gone! babay! to tight i am not taking the chance.

checking Orion pages for dimensjons..

Not surprisingly i found nothing!

Orion got the worst spec info in the history. (Orion: spec what?)

help.

The Reedy 3400mAh is a very good battery but unfortunately not EFRA legal. The problem is that as far as I can tell, there are no EFRA legal batteries that use the stickpack profile.

Tamiya Cup has been using Orion lipo's in the Mini for the last year or two and i think other classes.
Think they used the carbon edition packs and no modding required.

This might fit: http://teamorion.com/Products/SLPB+L...xperience+Lipo
but its too low on amps. 8min races limit the motor too much i think.

If you mean these battery's i believe it when i see it. http://teamorion.com/Products/SLPB+L...00+2+cell+SLPB

Here in Norway both ROAR and EFRA legal batteries are allowed.

That leaves me with theses:
yeah racing 3200mah lipo stick pack
ORCA Q Lipo 4000mAh 25C STICK RACE PACK

It might be more batteries that is stick pack and ROAR legal but i don't know ho.
