Hitec (Laser/Optic 6, etc.) Tx battery plug

Hey, does anyone know where to get the TX battery plugs for the Hitec Optic 6/Laser 4.

I've found one (I think) at http://www.allerc.com/product_info.php?products_id=175, but I'd rather not order it for 4.50 and pay $5 for shipping and spend $10 for a stupid plug. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

The plugs are a Kyocera Elco mini 2 pin as used in many computers. Available on the net or many electronic parts supply retailers.
Hitec supply an adaptor lead for Eclipse, Prism & Flash battery packs to enable use of field chargers etc #56307.
Alternate source of plug and header = Header Pin & Plug 2-Way SIL .1'' [Nylon 66 UL94V-0, 2Amps] AU & NZ = #P2731 at DSE.

I had Dave at Radical RC make me some extra pigtails with the different plugs on. They were only a couple of bucks and less then 2$ shipping. Give them a call. When he made mine, I asked for about 8 in. of wire. These are really good folks.
