Question
Battery Advice

I am currently flying the Super Cub LP and it's using a 11.1V 1300mAh 15c LiPo Battery with EC3 Connector. Where could I find this battery on sale or a good deal on it? Also is there any batteries close to the same stats at a better price? $23.99 seems to be the cheapest I can find. Any advice on a better battery or a better find on a deal would be great!

Thank you!

Any 3s (11.1v) 1300-1500mAh LiPo battery will do the job. 20c is probably the lowest c rate you will find but that's fine, higher c rate is actually better.
End connection can easily be changed, or you can buy adapters so you dont need to limit yourself to EC3.

You should be able to get a battery for about $10: http://www.hobbyking.co.uk/hobbyking...dProduct=20635

When you ask a question it often helps to know your location. You will get different answers from different places in the world.

+1 on always providing your location!
Since the OP mentioned a price in dollars, I'll suggest checking out Value Hobby in Illinois. $23.99 for that size battery is not a plan

Hey, it even comes with EC3 connector

I was trying to buy online so I didn't think my location mattered. Anyways it's Vancouver WA.

So the dementions of my current battery is.

Length:2.76 in (70.0mm)Width:1.46 in (37.0mm)Height:0.83 in (21.0mm) and it's snug in the slot, do u guys know a battery close to the same dementions or will one that's close in length, width and height work ok?

There was a time when it didn't matter much but airmail shipping restrictions on lipos mean that buying from other countries can be much slower now than it once was. Here's an example battery from the US:

You are best placed to judge but usually a few mm increase can be accommodated, especially in length. Hobbyking state dimensions for their batteries.
