    Hi. Seems to be a fairly wide range of prices for phantom batteries on the net. Where do you buy the cheapest/good batteries. Shipping needs to be considered too as I'm in Sydney, Oz. Thanks!

    Thanks...
    I'm a battery newbie, would you be able to link to the one(s) that would work with the Phantom, or let me know what to look for? (and chargers)
    My main question though is, can you get batteries which would last longer than the stock batteries?

    Thanks

    If each motor uses an 18A ESC, then your peak discharge rate would be 4x18A=72A. So a 2200mah battery rated 20C (30C burst) would not quite meet spec (only 44A continuous, 66A burst)

    Not sure why the Phantom ships with a 20C battery... Are they assuming that each motor will average < 10A? Or am I not understanding things right.
