Best Lipos for Parzone Planes?

I own the Parkzone -


I believe they recommend a:

11.1V 3s 15C 1800mAh Li-Po


11.1V 3S 25C 2200mAh Li-Po

I was wondering what the best bang for my buck (cheapest and best) is:

Zippy, Turnigy, Turnigy-Nanotech, Rhino? And what C rating if I go with those batteries? Also do they come with deans plugs or do I have to buy them too?

Thanks in advance.

Where do you live? Don't mean to be presumptuous but if you're in the US, I would recommend either the Billowy Power 2250mAh from Hi Country Hobbies or Gens Ace 2200mAh from Hobby Partz. Anything from 25C to 50C will work just fine in the Parkzone warbirds.

Reason I recommend these over anything from Hobby King is that shipping is far less (usually free), much faster, and you have a significantly higher probability of getting swift resolution should you receive a bum pack. Net cost after shipping is factored in makes them the around the same price and perhaps even less than Hobby King offerings.

Just my thoughts...

I don't know if anyone other than HH related sources supply batteries with EC3 connectors already on them, but the best value from E-Flite/Parkzone if you do not want to solder connectors would be the E-Flite 3S 20C 2100 mAh, for $10 less than the Parkzone 2200.

If you don't mind changing connectors or making an adapter, the 2250 mrforsyth mentions has a much higher C rating for about the same price as E-Flite 2100. The higher C rating is not required unless running (or going to future run) a motor that "requires" more than a 40 amp ESC, but higher C can give a little more kick due to lower internal resistance.

hcsk8ter, After you use a 2200 in your 28, the 1800's will never feel the same.
I still have two 1800's left and use them as the last two batteries to be used on a outting, which sometimes don't even get used. I use the HK Turnigy's and have been happy with them. I also use the EC3's that parkzone used on the ESC's. Just got my second bag of 10 sets of them from HK for a few bucks, they work for me.
