Default What Lipo size for 325 and 430 DIY night blades?

I have picked up a Gaui 425EP, machine and some Stealth 430 Carbon blades from Helidirect.

What size Lipo batteries are folks running on these 430, and my 325 blades?

I am using the Hobby City 240mah 1s lips on my 610 Rototechs for my 50 nitro machines.

I'm going to use 100mAh Turnigy 20C cells on my 430mm blades.

They may be a little large for 325mm blades. 70mAh would probably be a better size.

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.

100 out of stock now.

Might as well get the order placed now.

I don't think there is another US distributor other that bphobbies that has anything close, and they want 8 dollars a piece for them.

Check RadicalRC. I've ordered other stuff from them before and haven't had any problems.

Is $5 apiece better?

No waiting on HK, makes it a great deal.

Thanks Bum!
