Using the align battery it came with now, need to get another 2 batteries.

What are the best (best meaning, longest lasting, most stable, lightest and cheapest of course lipos I can get for the 450? I was looking at the kong power (2 for $120) or the air thunders for about the same.

What about a higher than 2200mAh? Will that fly longer? Is it better to pay more for a different brand?

Thanks!

Ever notice how crash rhymes with cash?

Somebody at my field was using these at $28 each. At that price it may be worth a try. He said he was not having any problems with them but I don't know how many flights he had on them.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I vote for flightpower evo2170's. They seem to be the "tried and true" pack with good power and longevity.

The Kong powers and airthunders are getting good reviews as well. It's difficult to judge how long they will last. There are several reports of them reaching 200 flights.

I've made the mistake of buying cheap. It's really not worth it, I have two that I thought were pretty good for the price. But after 50 flights I can already feel them getting weak.

If you are running the 430XL motor I think a 25C is a must for 3d. That motor sure seems hard on packs. Sure ate my 16C aligns, which were great for the 430L, for lunch.

Yes, at that price I'm going to order a few. The guy at the field flies his 450 almost everyday and he knows a lot about Trex 450. He has a couple of Thunder Power and a couple of Align batteries and he seems very pleased with the performance of these so far.

I personally fly Evo25 2170 packs in my t-rex and love them, flying one of them back to back with a Thunder power extreme i like the flight power more.

Now those extreme v2's from thunder power look pretty sweet

Kong powers have been great for me. I have 4 with about 40 flights on each, but mostly all hpovering and orientation stuff, nothing 3d. I had one puff a bit because I took it way too low (it was an experiment). They will replace it at 50% cost, no questions.
