I have been looking for batteries that will fit (less than 30mm on narrow side) in the dominator 450 and so far the only ones I have seen are the ones that Align makes. What other batteries have you found that will fit?

Pulse 1250mah

Gens ace looks like they might have 1200mah and 1400mah packs that fit. I just searched on eBay and found them.

I have the GensAce 1400 40c and they are "press" fit so I do not recommend them..

I will buy 1250mah next time around.

for best CG use are Align 1450mah, 1250 are to light and then the 450L is tail heavy.

Mine balances really nice with the pulse 1250's. And they fit perfectly. The only complaint is the large gauge wire. I run EC3 connectors on my small gear, and it's the absolute maximum wire size you can solder into an EC3 terminal.

I use the 1450 align as well but wanted some other options and I see that there are some. Too bad it wasn't just 3mm wider and I could fit the 1/2 price turnigys in there. Maybe the narrow size wasn't an accident.

Its sad no other manufactures made batts for 450L . Also KDE drop the motor for it also. It was a very nice motor.

Its annoying because they are usually just a few MM off and with the stiff carbon frames they isn't much bend. I kind of think Align shrunk it that extra 3mm and made a battery to fit it so only theirs would work. I mean really, when designing a helicopter would it be that hard to make it just 5 MM wider so almost every battery at the time would fit? When it first came out theirs was the only one but now it looks like there are more.

The KDE motor wouldn't fit without cuting the frames off around the motor so it wasn't a very good fit in the 450l. I don't think you can get much better than the stock align motor anyway so why even try. If it is more powerful it probably going to shorten flight time and the stock motor seems to have plenty of power.

I have two align 1450mah batteries and they work good. I have one gens ace 1200 mah pack and it has been a good battery. I have two pulse 1250 packs and I just checked the IR on them and both of them have a one cell that is pretty high on the Internal resistance and they are not as old as my others. I havnt been very impressed with the pulse packs, they work fine but I don't think they have been as good as the align or gens ace packs.
