Zippy Flightmax batteries deliver full capacity & discharge as well as being the best value batteries in the market! No matter the application you have in mind, zippy lipoly batteries are an ideal choice.
This is slightly too large for the 1/16 Traxxas battery trays. Go with something with slightly shorter length and maybe smaller gauge wires since this is a 1/16 and does not need super heavy gauge wires.
Will this be a good LiPo battery to power an old brushed 400 engine? I have an old Kyosho Ferias lying around that I would like to bring that back to life. It used to fly on a 7 cell NiCad so 8.4 volt. This 2S LiPo will be 7.2 volt. This LiPo battery seems to have a similar size and weight as my old NiCad battery so it would be a nice snug fit. It will however have a lot more capacity so I expect a lot more flight time to get out of it. Just wander whether the lower voltage will provide an issues as I expect the amperage to go up to get the same power.
Almost a perfect fit for my 1/16 Revo. Slight mod on the battery is all that is needed to make it fit. Excellent power! Will definately be buy more these Lipo batteries.

I use this in my drift car during races. Very light weight and high output current. Useful capacity before cut off is 1800mAh which is great. Charger shows from 6V to 8.4V around 2250mAh on all of my three batteries. I can only recomend.
