I took a look around, and the 1450 lipo from hobbyking seems to be the best deal going for a tx lipo.

I need something to fit my dx6, but I think I will spend the money to do the Dimension Engineering voltage reg swap. I have 2 nimhs for that tx and they are a very weird size. Looks like 8 aaa cells, arranged in 2 tacked bricks of 4. Very odd size, something like 24mm square by 100mm long.

I would have prefered to use that 1450 LiPo also but it was on back order and I was placing an order from hobbypartz anyway. The 1450 doesn't appear to be as think so it probably fits better.

eBay has them pretty often...there are a ton of Zippy & Turnigy LiPos on there right now. Do a search and see what you can find!

Hobbypartz has a 1000mah Sky LiPo that might fit.

I wanted to get this guy, but since they were out of stock I went for the 20 dollar FS-GT2 and it seems to be a very capable radio.

I am excited about the size of the Receiver, really small.

Down the line I might pick up one of these when they become available again.

I'm going to get me one when they become available as reaction/resolution improvement had been mentioned. My Nomadio and Airtronics are 100hz and old spektrum is 50hz frame rate. I see a 500hz bandwidth in the specs of the FlySky. 35 Bucks is worth a try in my pan cars.

Have you guys ever looked at the 103450 size lithium ion batteries? These is what I use in my Transmitters. 3 of the fit easily in my airtronics. I harvest them from old laptop batteries.

my RedCat came with the FS-GT2
but the FS-GT3B is WAY better .

the responce time on the FS-GT3B is sweet 0 lag
and the LCD display is fine you just dont see a backlight in it when your outside.

I charge the little buggers at 2.5-3Amps. Capacity is around 1800mah. It's not like I play for 4 hours straight, so capacity is not really a concern for me.
