Battery order?

Unread post by Scooterboy » Thu May 14, 2020 3:54 pm

Hello all;
I hope that everyone is fairing well with craziness.
Anyone ordering in Lipos for this limited season of flying?
Some of my larger outdoor flying batteries are getting long in the tooth, and should be replaced. I was debating on putting a battery order together for myself (3 cell 2200 mah). But thought I would check to see if anyone was already doing so, or wanted to save some shipping by piggybacking on an order with me.
I was thinking about buying from Hobbyking, unless someone has had good luck and pricing from somewhere else.
I believe someone said that Bill had good luck getting batteries at a reasonable price in the past?
Anyway, let me know your thoughts.
Regards
Kevin Baker aka Scooterboy.

I have been buying my batteries from Shami Hobbies the last few years. When I compared the cost of shipping and dollar conversion, it was only a bit more for batteries here. So I have been supporting canadian shops.

Think they are in Ottawa area.
I have been getting 4s 5000 packs this year. On sale they are $85cdn. hobbyking is $78cdn.
Not sure what the 3s 2200 are now. I had gotten 2 orders of 4 battery, think $25 two years ago
