    It seems there is a huge shortage of lipo batterys right now. Any idea why?

    no idea other than winter is over and everyone is pulling the toys off their shelves and getting ready for summer. Have you checked out SPC lipos. Good quality at a fair price and usually always have them in stock. I spoke to sales rep at SPC and he also recommended setting the LVC (low voltage cutoff) to 3.5 instead of keeping the stock LVC at 3.2. This will increase the life of your batteries significantly and prevent them for swelling. When you spend 80.00 - 100.00 per battery it adds up
    uh oh.... that didn't sound good

    I'm glad to have already purchased my new batteries (6 of them 6 weeks ago).

    I got my new batteries from SPC and must have ordered when everything I needed was in stock. Nice to have luck and timing on my side once and awhile......

    I get all my batteries from outside the country. Great prices.
