Since you are in such a rush because your order is coming tomorrow, buy what ever your LHS has in stock.

Otherwise, you will have to wait for the batteries if you buy online.

Best bet is to get the biggest mah and c rating you can afford. Some guys say the c rating is hype, but in my personal experience, have noticed a difference. YMMV

3000-5000mah and 25-30c should work. If you can, try for Thunder Power or Orion LiPo Batteries. They might cost a little more, but they are the best batteries in the business. And make sure you read the instructions through and through. A lot of new guys to LiPos like blame the company for their own mistakes.
