Losi Micro Brushless SCT

So i picked this guy up earlier today, saw that the lipo looks very similar to what eflite is using on their UMX line of planes. I have tons of those batteries and a charger. My question is, is there any reason that taking a connector from Rc-connectors.com for the beast and soldering it on to sct? that way i could use the 2s batteries i have im not very keen on electrical stuff, so i dont know what kind of problems could happen here.

Are the beast packs big enough with high enough C rating for this? I wouldn't go smaller than 200mah and 30c to be safe if you can.

I did that with my micro desert truck, and it works wonderfully. The only real issue is that the body wants to sit kinda sideways. That said, it was doing that with the other battery, and the micro dt is smaller(more cramped) than the micro sct.

You shouldn't have any problems as long as you keep the wires going to the correct connections, and that's color coded for you.

I picked mine up today, I bought a hyperion 2 cell 240mah. I am making an adaptor from a hyperion connector to micro losi connector, this way I don't have to cut the wires. My son will be using the stock battery until he learns how to control it lol!
