    Thanks :) would there be an advantage to do a LiPo battery?

    Li-po batteries are superior to ni-mh and ni-cd in pretty much every aspect, and they are even cheaper to buy, so yes a li-po battery would be a good choice. Just find a 7,4v li-po with the correct measurements and you're good.

    Agreed lipos are the way to to. The charger will cost more but the batteries are dirt cheap and have excellent performance. Plus they are smaller

    7.4v to be safe. You can go 11.1v if you want a high rof. The largest mah you can fit and around the 25c range should be good. Check hobbyking.com

    So I'm browsing through the Lipo's at HobbyKing, but none of them specify if they are 7.4v or 11.1v

    Thats a good battery if it will fit. The rof will probally be a little higher with the lipo. I use a imax b6 and its great got mine on amazon. You will also need a power source for it if its not the version with one built in. Remember the connector on the battery will have to be changed

    The ROF may be a bit slower than with the 9,6v ni-mh, but the Li-po will give a much better trigger response, last much longer and be alot more reliable.
