    Got a new battery that arrived today from Aliexpress. Costs £60 and it is for my P3A. So far it accepted the latest firmware, started up the motors inside (no props on) and it said it is ready to fly. So spun the motors and no problems at all as the firmware accepts it. Will take it for a test flight and report back. It clicks into place fully (some batteries stick out) and quite tough to pull out which is good if I crash then I don't have to look for the battery as I doubt it will have been thrown out. So as soon as I go for a flight I will give an update and a link

    I didn't know that 3rd party batteries can create rains :)
