Anyone flying the Tandem Rescue - have you found a good supplier for replacement batteries? Or a tested alternative? Thanks.

Suppliers that have/had them are out of stock or want outrageous shipping to Canada.

Hmmm...I just get mine from my LHS. They keep them in stock, apparently. I haven't needed to buy any new ones in a while (yet) Have you tried Amazon?

My Tandem Rescues were bought second hand and I only have one decent battery.

I live in a city of 15,000 and we do not have a LHS. The closest LHS to me is in a slightly larger city about a 2-1/2 hour return drive, and has very limited parts. They will order in what you want but then you have to drive back there again in 7-10 days to pick up the parts.

I need an online supplier, but not the one on ScamBay that wants $25.75 shipped! Our amazon.ca is nothing like amazon.com. If I order from US suppliers I pay duty plus taxes (except from Clubheli for some reason). I'm pretty much stuck with waiting on Chinese suppliers - cheap, no duty or taxes, but slow.

Do you feel sorry for me yet?

I bought my Tandem second hand and it had one E-flite battery which has now retired to lipo heaven.

Since I have quite a few of these Turnigy 600mA for my 120SR I made up an adapter cable to fit the Tandem and Turnigy.
Then just fasten the Turnigy with an elastic band, job done and I am flying

I could do that.

I have lots of 500-600mah batteries for my Solo Pro 328 and v929 Quad.

Good call, John!

If ClubHeli.com is cheaper, maybe you could call them and ask if they would special order you stuff and ship it? Worst they can do is just say no...

Has anyone tried a MCPX 300mah battery? They are longer but should fit in ok.

You'll need a plug adapter. mcpx uses a different plug style.

OK thanks. They kind of look the same to my old eyes so I wasn't sure.

If I had bought 3 or 4 of these then I would had to go ahead and buy the mcpx to fit them. So you saved me - I think?

New Syma S34 2.4ghz

Looks like Xheli has the new Syma S34 2.4ghz for $39.95. Just a heads up.

Woww, what a price difference...very tempting.

This would give my one s022g a break, cause I'm always flying that one.
Thanks for the tip Big Kid.

In my case the 'what' is my wallet and the high purchase and travel cost of an LHS from here. I am hoping for great things from the WL CP.
