    What's this bullshit about warehouses? Does that mean I need to place an order with the Charger, Deans connector and power supply and another one with the batteries?

    Edited:

    WHY IS THIS SO HARD

    I just want a Imax B6 Charger, 7.4 Lipo and a Deans thingy so I can actually charge that shit. I'd like to get them within a month.

    Charger, Deans and Power Supply are "International" warehouse

    Batteries are "US" warehouse.

    So apparently I need to place two orders? I guess that's fine but how long does Hobbyking take to ship International? Is it Ebairsoft/Dealsextreme long or what?

    Never mind, they have an international version of the same battery but my question still stands on how long it takes to ship.

    Also what is that connector? I'd have to switch all of these batteries over to deans.

    it took about a month for them to ship 2 lipos from hk with cheapest shipping

    the shipping provider they used (swisspost.ch) shipped the package through zurich before coming to murrica

    worth it though

    Well, ordered more deans connectors and a warning thingy off Ebay. Also the batteries off of Ebay. I'll get the charger and shit from HobbyKing.

    How long should I be able to play with 5 7.4's lipos? Apparently they don't last as long as Nimh.

    Probably pretty long. I run 1 NiMH and I run all day long without complete draining my battery.

    These are cheaper. Good to go?

    * Imax Charger - Check
    * Power Pack - Check
    * Deans Charger - Check
    * Lipo Buzzer - Check
    * Extra deans - Check
    * x7 7.4 1800 mAh Lipos - Check

    I should be Lipo ready by the end of the Month.

    I may or may not order from Evike in the next few days. It'll be a $265 order so I'm not in a rush since those orders arrive within a week, whereas China orders takes months. And than my Blacksheep loadout will be like 90% complete.

    I took the risk on the China-Shit Lipos. The hobby forums say they're good/average and if they blow balls I'll order good ones last minute from a US based hobby shop but for $7 a piece they're essentially disposable.

    That ended up being like $160 order or so.

    Lipo's last significantly longer than NimH, someone's fucking with you.
    My 1500 mah lipo lasted me all through the first 6 hours of Pine Plains before I swapped weapons, and it still had loads of juice left in it. It probably went through 1K-2K bb's in those 6 hours too.

    The guys at the field were like "You'll get maybe 1000 rounds through it before you need to switch"

    Doesn't matter. You can never have enough batteries, they're so cheap compared to NiMh's

    That's ridiculous. I've used my lipo for a whole day without running dry. Hell, that's one of the perks.

    EDIT: I mean, sure, it's better to get a lot, but "maybe last 1000 rounds" makes no sense. They're wrong or someone sold them wired potatoes and told 'em it was a lipo.

    Yeah, most I've made it through was 8 hicaps in an afternoon and the lipo still continued to work.
    Totally random number, but I think they're close to 10x as effective per mah as a nimh.

    If the battery isn't of terrible quality and the gun isn't a power hog, then a NiMh should last at least one shot per mAh its rated for. The battery on my M60 is a 9.6V 3300mAh, and one game it didn't run out after going through a full box mag and half a refill (~5,000 rounds). LiPos are more efficient but certainly not ten times more efficient, and a 1500mAh battery lasting 2,000 rounds without running out is very doable with a non-LiPo battery too.

    I got my sling with my Dboy AK and when I sold it I kept the sling because it was super sexy.

    I think the only other one I saw like it was on ebairsoft.

    Cardfan, if you are interested in wood handguards for your ak, I have one for sale. I bought it from evike but never got around to buying an ak74 lol. I will beat the price from any reputable online retailer because they aren't doing me any good by sitting in their bag.

    I've been playing with the idea of getting the clone Marushin shotguns. Would they be good/help if I went ahead and did that?

    And/or is there any reasonably good looking Maruzen shotguns?
