Need help I am new to this rc world

I need help as I am new to the rc world and my dominator by air hogs has a dead battery.
I need to know if I can use a 3.7V 1200mAh 20C Lipo Li-polymer Battery
it has a 3-cell (3.6 V) NiMH battery now and another person has used a 300 - 640maH LiPo battery 383450 640mAh lipo battery in theirs but can't find that exact battery or should I look for another battery and if so where and which one .


Thanks for any help in advance
Dave

PS
I have other Ideas making a 3D Star Trek flying Starships and if any interested in my project I can put up pics very soon

switching a 3cell nimh pack for a 1cell lipo should be no problem. what is important though is to keep the cg of your plane correct, otherwise it won't fly properly anymore. so you should weigh your old pack and then get a 1 cell lipo with approximately the same weight (and of course dimensions, otherwise it wont fit at all).
