Li-poly for 1.5-2.0 amps (Wal-mart sky surfer)

I have another thread over in parkflyers on my $18, 26", 2.0 oz
wal-mart sky surfer. It is controlled by differential thrust.

Stock battery is 3-cell 200 mah nimh weighing about 0.4 oz.

The plane will only climb on the very top of the pack, so I would like to put a bit more kick in the pants with a single lipo.

I checked the amp draw and it is 1.5 at about 3.4 volts. I would guess less than 2.0 amps at 3.7 volts. What is the best li-poly in the 0.4 oz weight class to support this draw? I tried a 830 qualcomm, but it was too heavy at about 1 oz.

Also, any ideas on how to make a RFFS conversion from this plane are welcome. I have no RFFS experience. Maybe I should start another thread here in indoor.

Thanks, John
