Hi all,

are Li-po's readily available in Doha? Took me two weeks of online searching to find a site to mail me Li-po's from the U.S. I am specifically looking for 3S1P 15C-20C 2100-2500 mah balanced packs.

The different shops do carry some, but you may not find much variety.  Check with the shops by calling them, the contact information is in the local hobby shops thread on this forum.

Thanks Anwar,

after spending what feels like weeks on the internet, I found that A Main Hobbies will ship Li-po's to me in Doha and ordered about 8 packs to make sure I had enough. When I get back in town, I plan on heading over to Hobbyland and scoping out what they have. I bought my Extra 330 and TT Raptor 60 from them, just been a while since I went over and said hi.

Hi Anwar,

I bought 5 Lipos 3S 1300mAh and 3 Lipos 3S 5000mAh from Hobbyking online, and i ship it via my Aramex account in US. Unfortunately they said batteries are not allowed to be shipped here into Qatar. They are now being hold in US Aramex warehouse.
I checked with Aramex they would require MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for them to release into Qatar.
I tried to contact Hobbyking but they gave me a hard time to get the MSDS form.
Do you have any idea where else can i buy Lipos online or is there any other way to bring Lipos into Qatar.
I look around hobby shop in Doha but they are really expensive and limited.

best regards,
niko

I usually order Lipo from Hobbyking and there is an option to select LIPO friendly shipping.  It takes much longer compared to Aramex.

Hi Jamal,
I can't seem to find the option Lipo friendly shipping. I tried until final step in Hobby king which is until entering my credit card information. I used Qatar PO BOX. Can you please let me know where to select the option?

Chris, I also would like to order Lipo's and now the shipping charges for lipo is very high.  May be we can combine our order to save on the shipping charges.

Will discuss further when we meet tomorrow morning.

Any special permission required to get in the Lipos? Is there any limit as in the number, capacity, etc?

I would like to order the Haiyin batteries direct from China instead of the Lipos from Hobby King. They puffed up after 5 charges but the Haiyin I got from Singapore is still going strong after 15 charges.

Puffing of batteries is usually related to over discharge.  Are you timing your flights and making sure you are following the "80% discharge only" rule ?  One deep discharge, and many lipos bulge, and will never go back to their normal self Sad

Take special care. Never use 2200 mAh 3S below 11.5 V. Used the HK batteries when first started and flew only the bixler. So there was not much load. Was concentrating on throttle management so keeping throttle as low as possible.

Eventually lost most of my HK batteries through crashes and other damages.

In the past I always ordered lipos from hobbyking against reasonable shipping cost.
Now I only get the only option to ship with Fedex for min USD 55 (one battery).
Are there other options or shops out there with lower shipping cost??
Any experience??
If you have please let me/us know

Take Care
