Where can I buy Lipo's in the USA for a good price?

I know I can get Lipo's from Hobby King for a great price but don't have a month to wait. Was wondering if there is any place state side that sells batteries for a decent price? I need some 3S 11.1V 1800mAh Li-Po for a Park Zone T-28. This is the recommended battery for this plane, is there anything that would be better than the above mentioned battery?

first off, Hobby King does have a US warehouse, which in my experience, shipping was in the neighborhood of 3-5 days

Hobbypartz (gens Ace), will fetch about 3-5 days shipping and free shipping after $25 is a major +.

lacofdfireman, Last order I placed was with HK US warehouse. Forgot, but I think it was around 13 bucks each for the Turnigy's, and delivery was pretty quick. You might want to think about passing on the 1800's and start collecting 2200's for the T-28. You will notice the difference on performance.

+3 for hobbypartz. Those gens ace batteries are just awesome for the price. I use them in my wing and they are wonderful.

valuehobby has a sale right now on batteries, I love this store. 3.99 shipping any size order and FAST too! Also the batteries come with Deans plugs already soldered on.

hobbypartz is good too but I don't care for the banana plugs

Given all of the + votes for HobbyPartz Gens ace batteries I ordered 4 of the 4S 2500 batteries yesterday to give 'em a try.
