Default Aftermarket Lipos for mini Cub

Jeff from Heads Up RC has a selection of Lipos. I am repowering and upgrading my mini and he has everything I needed. His website is www.headsuprc.com and he has been around for several years and is USA based in Florida. Hope this helps.

You may also want to consider HobbyCity. It's hard to beat their prices. And they now have a warehouse in the U.S. so you no longer have to wait a couple weeks for your shipment to arrive.

Here's a nice replacement for the mini supercub Lipo batteries. And only $4.29 a piece!

Either of these guys will fit (just barely). I've run them both.

Note: I have run 600 MAH packs in a mini Cub and like how it improves wind penetration as well as the increased run time. (I had to slice out a small piece of foam to get the larger battery to fit)

Is there a way to see just the items available from the US warehouse? All of the items I have received always came from China.

Clint,

If you go to Hobby King's home page, over on the right is an icon that says USA warehouse. Click on it and it will take you to the USA page. There are currently 6 pages of items.

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...obby_Warehouse

If you happen to search for anything on their site that's not on tose 6 pages, it will automatically take you to the China web site and you don't realize it. Stay on those 6 pages and you'll be fine.

Thanks - works like a champ to scan through the 6 pages as opposed to looking at the entire catalog and then checking for items marked US Warehouse. ( was looking to order DSM2 receiver and Rhino batteries from US Warehouse but they are not available.)
