I have contacted Progressive RC (Spyder batteries), in a few weeks they should have the 2s 325 mah available with a jst plug along with an adaptor to fit the 130x. I'm using Spyder batteries on my 250, 450 and 550 and have been very pleased with them

TP 65C 325mAh 2s
I just picked up 4 of these bad boys - I also have 4 of the stock batts so will see how they compare

I got them at Graves RC in Orlando. Weight-wise they feel about the same as stock though I can't weigh them as I'm on vacation and forgot to pack my scales!

They're a bit smaller in length and width but the cells are thicker. Roughly the same actual volume I'd guess

I found that even the stock battery is a little too heavy for me to really enjoy flying with. I have a couple of the Zippy 350mah batts and they really help out with the tail blow out and are so light that it has more pop on pitch bumps. I have 10 flights on one and about 7 on the rest with no puffing or problems yet. The batt with 10 flights has been flown till the heli shuts down everytime 6min. I am just testing to see how much it can take and its holding up good for now but I dont expect it to last much longer with that kind of abuse. the Zippy batts seem to have same head speed and flight times of about 4 min and come down just warm and I put about 250mah back in when charging.

just wanted to throw this in there:
been flying for years and never had the balls to learn nose in hover until the 130x. set my mind to it, 4 packs later i can nose in hover for 2-3 minutes! losing the fear to pile the heli is what these small birds are about. wrecked a raptor 50 twice trying nose in!

Flying with Stock E-Flite 2S 300mah packs...a bit pricey but they perform well IMHO. I am learning some basic 3D stuff, flips and rolls.

Crashed the thing multiple times over grass and not one broken part, very happy with it :-)
