And I have the battery pack that will get the job done. Presently, trying to figure out how to fit it in my Moth. Just might go back to the original IPS motor to try and save some weight!!

hey, you got more batteries then I got, that ain't fare!

I got a zippy 800 mAh 2S for it, that should do the trick, I m kinda battery poor, I'm still not sure about using the lensRC 17 turn motor with it though, I ran that motor on my old cub and it never did fly right, so I'm not sure how it would do on the moth

Another choice, popular with many of the Moth flyers, is the Thunder Power 2S 910 mAh Lipos. I use their 2S 1320 Lipo as it fits other planes.

PS: Here's my Lipo inventory!!

I got a flight box that looks just like that for my gassers ....er, minus the batteries.

I've been getting the zippy batteries from hobby city they seem to work pretty well, when I order something from them, I'll throw in a battery or two, or a few servos, to fill up the order because they charge shipping by weight class, so it normally doesn't cost any more to throw a battery pack or two in with the order, and their cheap, just like me, cheap, well at least my kids say I'm cheap ......

How nice!! Something about a new Moth, no dings, nice and shiny, that does it for me. After the initial thrill wears off, ditch the stock wheels and consider a 9x7 prop. Thanks for sharing. Your Moth does, indeed, look very nice.
