To clarify... you have the original 8 AA battery Steady Grip, correct? And you want to replace it with a LiPo? That requires a modification of the grip itself:

LiPo Mod - Steady Grip


or do you mean a replacement battery for the Action Cam with a built-in LiPo?

Because of Yuneec's history of not being reliable in e-mail communication, I would call them at
their main sales number... (844) 343-9966... just because a part is not listed on their site, does not necessarily mean it cannot be ordered.

Nope the silver one, for cgo3 it takes lipo already.
It is an Li-on not a Lipo. It is specific to the grip and they are as rare as hens teeth, (right next to Unattainium on the periodic table), I doubt you will find one. You will most likely need to replace it with a Lipo that will fit. However unlike the Li-on, you cannot leave the Lipo charged up all the time.

Here is my modification using a 2200 2S Zippy compact. Fits into the space without issue.

I also adapted a 3s battery and it is working very well. A very nice mod!
