Already comes with lipo battery! Amain won't change the ad after months of advertising wrong. Purchased their Protek battery for no reason and talked them into taking it back after their return policy expired. Great radio.

After about 40 min of test time I can feel the difference between the Futaba 4pl I used. Much more connected feeling and steering is in real time. No more turning early before a corner. I really like the 3 grips and trigger accessories that come with the controller for the perfect fit!

The price was worth the wait and upgrade!

Lipo battery is included
