    Are Liperior batteries from RCBattery any good?

    so, I'm wondering of these batteries are any good. they kinda look cheap, seem cheap, and, well, are cheap. 35$ for a 3300mah 4S 50C battery seems too good to be true. sounds like it would be perfect for the STASH. except for the short runtime. but i could pick up 3 of them for the price of one...

    How problematic is it to store a LiPo battery in the trunk of a car?

    I wouldn't consider myself a hardcore RC enthusiast, but it's definitely an interest of mine. I have a Traxxas Slash 4x4, and it's a blast to throw around in parking lots or the grass.
