That's not the actual amount in-stock, scroll down to the last video and you'll see zero in stock, right above "Read the reviews".

I just taped 2 3000mah 3S packs together, and that comes in at 455.1grams. So, 6000mah for that weight cost... and would keep my nose heavy - result! I've ordered a Parallel Connector. Charging will be a b1tch, but hey. Problem is, I can't slide them all the way to the front... There's a small bit of foam the comes down at the front of the hatch opening. Can I cut off half an inch?

Yeah, for sure.. it's just that it will now take 2 hours to charge, instead of 1...
Might need a new CellPro charger.

USD 145, but with some luck you get a small window offering it for USD 100
I ordered it a few days ago from a domestic vendor, with a different branding but it is the same device, for EUR 150

Or you could just get this http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=6501

Save weight
No need to hack foam away
Lighter per mah
Easier to charge
No need for parallel connector......

When I only have 7 in-stock, I type that words, but u know, the skywalker is hot, so the amount went to zero rapidly.

I have one of those, I put it in the front of the plane and guess... not enough weight...
Cralis ... hack away my friend, hack away.... that bit if foam is not really structural, My plane nose dived into the ground with 2x4000 mAh batteries up front (without the bit of foam ) and there is hardly any evidence of a crash.
