What is the cheapest lithium battery/charger setup i can get? Also, isnt the stock battery 8.4v? so why are most of you guys running 7.2v lithium packs?

Because the next step up from 2 cell 7 volt battery is a 3 cell 11 volt battery. 7 volts have been plently to make the heli fly fine for just about everyone, especially since the heli is so much lighter. You only want to go to the 3 cell 11v battery if you have a brushless since the higher voltage can burn out brushed motors more quickly.

To add to what Carlos2 said:

When fully charged the 2S LiPo has a voltage reading of 8.4 volts. In addition, a 2S Etec LiPo weighs around 1.8oz while the birdseed weighs around 5oz. These two factors answer your voltage question.
