Went to my LHS and found a 2100mAh/11.1V 3 cell pack. Works great and yep...it's lighter. I can race three classes... electric 1/10th (2 heats and a 5 min main) and two nitro classes both with 15 min mains and still have more than 10 Volts at the end of the day.

Thanks for the info. I'm thinking of purchasing a lipo for my EX-10 just wanted to know if it's worth it.

I run this in my Helios. I like it. I kinda wish I would have purchased one of the smaller packs so I could get the radio a bit lighter but this is still a lot lighter than running normal batteries. They have a smaller/lighter lipo on special right now.

I have made it to the GLC the last three years. I plan on going this year as well. Come by the Parma tent and introduce yourself. I pit with Chicky at that race.
