    Best lipos

    Hey I'm looking for some decent but cheap lipos for my summit... I have heard good things about the spc 8200 lipo, but it's a little pricey for me at 31 ($50). I am willing to spend up to 20-25 ($32-40), as I have to buy two, and, being thirteen, don't have much money to spend. Any ideas?

    Those are the best... as far as price goes any less and you start getting into shoddy packs.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Not necessarily. You could try going with a lower capacity pack. I believe the spc 5000 mah 2s pack is around the price you desire and is just as quality a pack.

    Silly me thinking about max mAh.

    Shipping is still going to be killer.

    I think the shipping or customs will be the most costly. Check with seller, they might not even ship to Gibraltar.
    Some only do mainland europe,
    Guide books aren't part of the packaging.

    Id stick to a brand with some good feedback. And SPC lipos definetly have good feedback. Best value for lipos in my book.

    They have some good reviews with really low IR measurements.
