Want to add a little more:

16/15/4 Mega
CC 45
Electron 6 receiver

Do I need a seperate BEC or can I just use what I have?

In the batteries for sale section Max Amps is selling new 2100 4S packs for $59.00 I have a 3S pack and like it alot...these are the tronic cells

3S for $45.50 + 13.50 for the cell = $59.00

if you go to the batteries forum you will see alot of talk about these batteries as best bang for the Buck..

I have never owned a TP...I only used the one that the guy loaned me at the field....I have a Kokam 2000 3s and its as good as that...a little heavier though....I really don't think the weight would be an issue though..

I ordered 1 for me

Forgive me. I just canceled that order

I just got a call from my LHS and they are going to get me a TP for about $20 over the other one. I know the other packs are cheaper but I know TP. You will have to let me know how the other pack performs and maybe I will buy one so I will have 2 4 cells and 1 3 cell and be able to fly more. After all I still have to buy a charger for a 4 cell because my Supper Brain 969 only goes up to a 3 cell and isnít recommended for TP. For that mater TP says Do Not Use Supper Brain 969.

OK..I just did a weight comparison of a TP Prolite 4S 2100 and a Maxamp 4S 2100....

Max amp 4s 2100 8.6 OZ.
TP Prolite 4S 2100 6.2 OZ.

I think I can live with 2.4 oz. over the cost of these 2....

It is a privately owned LHS, they donít have a web site or anything. They have a tendency to give me things close to their cost; I think it is because I am doing some cutting edge stuff as far as they are concerned or maybe it is the PC help I give them. I did find the TP2100-4SPL for $89.60 at
http://www.cheapbatterypacks.com/mai...gid=tp&sort=PL which is only $9.00 more than what I am buying it for. It is the best I have found.
