Default Fusion EX-1 Pro battery help!

Hey guys, I am new to this forum and to large scale RC in general. My experience has been only with a Losi Micro T!

I am building a Fusion EX-1 Pro as my first real RC. I just got a Tekin RX8 1900kv combo. Now I am trying to find the right batteries for the job.

I have searched these forums a lot and know "you get what you pay for" but the problem is I can only afford so much.

I have read about turnigy hardcase lipos, does anyone have any suggestions as to which battery will fit?

Basically I would like to get a couple batteries for under $150 so that pretty much rules out the coveted maxamps batteries.

So yeah, if I could get some help that would be great, I have already learned a lot from reading these forums.

Use any hard cased 7.4v lipo.
when it comes to pricing be weary of unknown brands.
you can buy decent 25c/30c 5000mah + batteries around 50 - 70 USD and in some cases cheaper or better batteries.
Saw HK shops selling 40c IP batteries for around 65usd which is a good price.
