Where to buy lipo's from?

Ive bought lipo's from Hobby King, but take a month to get my order, even from the us wharehouse. Hobby partz, thier stock seems low right now. I cant afford Thunder power. So where else can one find decent lipo's? Im looking for a couple of
5s 3000 45-65c packs. I dont want to spend $85.00 a pack. whats available??
thanks in advance. Lee

Try these guys

http://chinahobbyline.com/ProductShow.asp?id=2366

they are now an official site sponsor here on RCG

make sure you select the USA warehouse. I got 'em in about 5 days.
I bought a couple of the 3s 2200mah 40c and they've been working pretty well, but too soon to know...only got about 20 cycles on them.

Read about them here:

I just got an order from Hobby King US warehouse. They have lowered the priority mail price and if you use that option you get them in less than a week. Looks like they are making an effort to improve service to US customers. I just made another order today and will report on how long it takes.

I have also ordered from HobbyPartz and have always got very fast shipping. The problem is that I have received a few packs with bad cells. From my experience their pad pack rate is higher than any other company. They should do a voltage check on each pack before they ship.

My friend and I in Maryland regularly order from HK USA warehouse, and delivery has always been less than a week, usually just a few days.

hmmm....what is "big"?

I've ordered about a dozen times from the USA warehouse, and shipping has been in par with other vendors and shipping times have been from 3-5 days tops...so faster than 70% of other vendors I've bought from the US.

Hobby King


For the order that I made early this morning I just got a shipping notice. Looks to me like the delayed shipping problems have been solved. They charged me $9.52 for 2-3 day priority mail for $66 worth of batteries. Looks like they have figured out about the flat rate shipping from the USPS. Hopefully I will have them early next week.
