    Lots of threads on this particular battery and the feedback has so far been negative. there are several posts from credible flyers that have reported shut downs in midflight. I'd link you, but I'm too lazy to search. Check the Phantom 2 thread.

    I did find one post in which a user had postive feedback mentioning the battery performed as expected. Again, that was only one post I found out of several.

    ...maybe the guys with good results are holding out on their results :D

    To save $41, I would personally never risk using knock off batteries, just as i won't use the OXOXO props (even though I got tricked into buying 4 pair when I first got my P2 in December).

    you're not alone. i did the same.

    i've come to the conclusion that penny pinching isn't worth it.

    Note that there has been a recall issued on this battery for shutting down completely at full throttle. That's pretty much the worst thing that can happen other than breaking out into a lipo fire. I say stay away from this thing.

    Thread moved to p2 forum.
