I ordered from them a couple of days ago and got them already. At least from my one experience I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.

I am looking at Losi Micro lipo, but it's only 180 mA.
Stock battery is 150 mA, so not big difference?
I should go for other brand?

So what battery is giving the longest run time?
The HobbyZone HBZ1017 7.4V 300mAh LiPo Battery?

Or is there a better option?

Any issues going from stock 4+v to a 7.4v?

Backin the game again and doing alot of reading on these micros.

He just states that it will recognize the chemistry of the battery. I'll have to wait to see if it really does when I get my lipos in and get them installed on my Micro.

thunder A6, Thunder AC6, IB6, Accucell6..........they're all the same. I've had the A6 and now the accucell 6, several friends have the $100 venom pro and it's IDENTICAL to my $28 charger down to the pcb they both use lol.

you'll just need a 5a power supply (think laptop, external harddrive, etc..)

that place says it will take up to 30 days just to ship out...
plus the batteries are out of stock.
what do you think of this combo?

http://www.himodel.com/electric/2-3S...pack_320B.html


with these batteries??

I'm pretty new to the rc world and really have no idea what I'm looking for.

himodel will take just as long to ship, if you buy from hobbyking.....do the ems shipping and pay the extra, it's worth it. my batteries and charger came in 3 days total. You can offset the cost of shipping by stocking up on other stuff. buy several batteries, buy the charger, buy some 24awg wire to redo all of the wires on your crawler...buy lipo's for your other rc's...there's TONS of good stuff on there.

this is the one i got, a little longer than stock but not an issue as it lays down on the rear axle ( or in the body of a scaler)
http://www.himodel.com/electric/HiMo..._Balancer.html

No run times yet as everything is apart, However it has charged fine
everything was wrapped in foam padding in its own zip baggie

I went a little crazy and got a bunch of other batteries for my misc RC gear and the cheapie 320B Lipo/Balance charger.
all is been great so far
