The one Rexless pointed out will fit. It is the biggest and best choice anyone has found that will fit.

If it is smaller than the original at that power, they have better technollogy than anyone else.

Especially considering it's 18g lighter to boot.

I would get the Turnigy Nano-Tech for sure. They have much better voltage holding, ie while flying the battery will drop from 8.4 to 7.9 within a minute or 2, then sit around 7.6-7.8v for most the flight and only drop once it is depleted. Where as the stock seems to drop fairly steadily from 8.4 down to flat in a more linear manner.

(ps those voltages are load voltages, when you stop flying the voltage will rise again by 0.2-0.4v or so)

Also that 2200mAh battery may just fit, but I very much doubt it's really 2200mAh, unless it's only 5C or something pathetic..

2000mAh NanoTech is by far the best choice. Also it can be charged up to 5C happily, that's 10A! Giving a charge time of only 12 minutes. Although to be safe I'd only charge it around 2-3C. With the B6 or Accucel6 you can only go up to 5A charge rate anyway which is 2.5C for this battery.

Hobbykings international warehouse is in hong kong I'm pretty sure. Either way, when I've ordered from them it only takes 7-10 business days MAX to Australia via regular shipping. And this is for LiPo's not just non volatile parts.
Just don't order over the weekend as it sometimes takes a few days for them to process the weekends worth of orders. I suggest order on Wednesday's.

To be honest the Turnigy is worth getting just so you don't have the drop in performance after 5mins flying. I find the stock battery got weak after 5 mins in the air, even though it still had 7.8v. My turnigys however don't feel weak until around 10mins. And the extra C output gives greater power at full charge to. Especially good for emergency throttle pumps

Not to mention this is a Li-Lion not a Li-Po Battery and I wouldn't bother with it as Li-Po's are better.

Is the left one your stock battery? That seems to be a Li-ion, my stock battery looks the same but is a Li-Po according to the info on it

yea... they all say its a LiPo but we as a group here at RCG have a strong feeling that it is a Li-ion. Either they are trying to trick us, or they simply don't realise there is a difference.

They DO make LiPo's in round cells, but they are usually expensive rather than cheap.

Also someone mentioned charging their stock battery as a Li-Ion with the iMax B6 (to 8.2v) and only got a few minutes out of it. I have always charged my stock battery as a Li-ion to 8.2v and it flies around 10-12 minutes just fine.. (LiPo's charge to 8.4v)

LiPo or Li-ion ???
The Stock Charger has 8.4V Output so it must be a LiPo....
Or they put the wrong Charger into it....
