It can be done, but it becomes extremely cost prohibitive to ship lipos outside your country ... you cannot ship using the postal service and must use one of the couriers. They instanantly slap a dangerous goods charge on the shipment, which increases costs significantly, not to mention the brokerage requirements ....

There are a number of pack options available right here in North America both in the USA and Canada.

Chrome
Gens Ace
Reaktor
.. etc ..

Unless you're buying at wholesale volume prices, it's simply not cost effective ...

Really weird, my shop only ordered a few more than I bought (5) and there was no minimum order. Hopefully these will fit, I'll receive mine today.

I have 2 of the 45C Chrome 1300mah packs and 2 Gens Ace 30C 1200mah packs and got flights in on both today. I like both packs equally and they both feel the same punch wise governed on the koby. The Chrome packs are a little thicker and cause a tighter fit with the canopy. The Gens Ace are thinner and longer and the canopy fits nice and snug with these packs.

Running at 63% of the koby wich is right around 3500 I got 4 min flights times on both packs with 30-33% left in the Gens Ace and 35% on the Chromes.

Now I want 2 more packs and nobody has any in stock..

No problem with fit for the Reaktor packs. Just trying to figure out how to get a slightly better balance though, I'm a bit tail heavy with 1400mah packs.

Thanks. 1400mah is only 2,5mm longer, so it will probably fit nicely.

If you have the shorter / fatter packs, it might be easier to balance. I haven't checked to see how tail heavy I am yet, but I don't think it's by much. I'll be working on that today before I get my outdoor flights in.

Yeah I'm tail heavy with both packs I have. I'll fix it at some point but not worried about it, flies so well as is.

Apparently Canada Post delivers on weekends close to the holidays.

Just got 4 Turnigy 1300maH 35C 6S from my friends at Hobbyking. All the cells check out OK. All my 3S Turnigy's have performed well.

It took 26 days to get to my door but perfect timing as I expect to have my kit late next week.

Also have 2 Reaktors coming from Jeff.

Dimensions

77mm X 44mm X 33mm

I sent an email to gens ace asking when they expect the 1400mah to be back in stock.

The answer I got was "next season"

Not sure if that's next year or next flying season, who knows, either way it will be a long wait.

Is there any other properly sized lipo with a good track record at a sane price available in Europe?

Esc up front everything up front I could and tail heavy a fair bit with 1400mah. Some say that's no big deal, it is of you're into many piro maneuvers like I am. Maybe some 1400-45-60c packs would make useable weight at least. I'm AUW of 1094 grams as it stands.
