These cells can't hack the high discharge rate that you'll need.

If you're looking for good cheap cells for that motor, you can't beat the A123 cells for value right now. These cells come in the DeWalt Li power packs for cordless tools. There are 10 cells in each pack, though they are rated at a lower voltage that LiPo (3.6 vs 4.2).

Do a search on Ebay for these packs - use "DC9360" for your search.

Mine is not to reason why; I just wire them up to fry...I mean Fly!
