Alternative to Xtreme Power System lipos?

I was about to order one of their 3S1P 2200mah lipos, but I see they are out of stock. After reading the thread describing their new 65c batteries, it seems they are not going to be stocking 3S any more. I was planning on using one of these lipos in my new glider and so I planned the balance of it based on using it (200g and able to produce at least 60amps). Anyone know of an alternative lipo weighing about the same at 200g, 2200mah capacity, and at least 30c rating?

HobbyKing is probably your best bet.

I tried them, but all their lipos for the equivalent of what Xtreame was selling are quite a bit heavier.

After looking around some, it seems Thunder Power have very similar spec batteries (albeit at a steeper price), so I'll probably go with them.

Thanks Graeme, that's getting close

Although I need at least 60amps discharge for about 30 seconds or more.

The nano-tech, Thunderpower, Align, and others all use the exact same components and chemistry that our factory does, which comes from Japan.

You should check out what HobbyPartz has to offer..... similar pricing to HobbyKing but they have free shipping for orders over $50 (USA only) and you don't have to wait 3 + weeks to get your parts....I know you're in Canada but the pricing is still great.

I would not use turnig packs if you gave me them for free I had a plane lite up in mid air the turnigy's were not up to the task like my hyperions, xps, and thunder power cells can not be beaten I have tried sky lipos and gens ace as well they are ok for planes and cars but can not handle my boating applications as they hit lvc under acceleration due to a very large voltage drop

I did end up going with Thunderpower for my sailplane and have been very happy. Very low voltage drop under full power, you usually get what you pay for, they aren't cheap, but they work great.
