GenAce are better then Zippy and Turnigy based on a number of test I did with 3s batteries. For your plane you need 4s about 3000mAh and you dons have GeAce that will fit and they are significantly more expensive.
You can goy with SkyLipo 4s.

Hobbyking will take significantly longer.
Hey Guys,

I like the Gens Ace and the Turnigy equally well and am not looking to start a debate about which is better.

Is it really true that if you order from HobbyKing in the USA(Washington state) and from HobbyPartz in California, it takes "significantly longer" for orders to get to Ontario from Washington state???

There is some misinformation being battered arround out there .. Too many generalties and not enough specifics. The CC 10 amp bec will just about cover most applications out there and there was never any issues with it ; very dependable and lower priced than some others. The issues that CC did have was with the Bec Pro version (20 amp) . I have been running and using the Bec circuits on my CC Phoenix and Ice Lite 100 escs rated at 5 amps with proper air flow for over 2 years now and have not had an issue yet. AND I am using ATX digital servos as well . My H9 Twin otter is running with 7 digitals and 1 analogue servos plus two esc's with the motors and my Deuces is running 5 digitals with 3 eflite electric retracts plus 2 Motor Esc's and both aircraft operate off of one CC Esc 5 amp bec. All too often all the specs are not clarified correctly as yes there are a lot of esc's ( most in fact) are really only rated at arround 2.5-3 amps and yes, you may have problems with these not supplying enough power at full demand.

All too often servo installation ; creating servo binding may be the culprit and the same issues may also apply with regular receiver battery power.
