    Is this worth the price?

    Seems steep, but you get everything you need.

    Agreed , the MA setup is good , but you can get A LOT more bang for your buck with the *****/Rhino packs and one of the decent chargers that Hobby City has .

    You dont have too cut the chassis , but you do have too trim a little off the end of the battery door because the wires are big .

    The MaxAmps batteries seem wierd to me. The really nice lipos can all be charged at 2C and the MaxAmps units appear to only be able to handle a 1C charge. With the incredibly inflated prices they are charging you'd expect them to be the technology leader which they clearly aren't.

    CommonSense RC has the perfect 11.1v pack http://www.commonsenserc.com/product...roducts_id=791

    It's a 25c 11.1v 1600mah unit capable of being charged at 3A w/ 40A continuous output and 80A surge. Seems to fit exactly perfect and leaps and bounds a better battery than the MaxAmps offering. It's a very tight fit but there is still a couple milimeters of space on the top for airflow.

    Honestly what I'd like to see is a similar flightpower offering but they don't have anything yet. I've had good luck in the past with commonsense.
