    Hi all

    I tried searching for "Battery" but got no results so decided to post.

    I have an FC40 and was wondering which battery to get as I need a couple more. Currently I have the Phantom and a 2500 MAH 11.1v spare but wondered if anyone had any recommendations.

    I think I'd also be as well buying a multiple battery charger but no idea which is best.

    Any suggestions...?

    That's great Hack61

    Does anyone have any suggestions for charging multiple batteries simultaneously...?

    I just checked. Shipping is $140. Looks like I'll have to find another solution.

    You can try these. I have one and it gives me about 3-5 minutes more flight time than the 2200 mah batteries I run. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... duct=14057

    I definitely plan on getting more.

    Just paid for 2 of these -- Not sure how they will go but for the price might well be worth the attempt ..
    Mad Dogs freight costs to Oz prevented that from happening to me -- Need about 30 people to make it worthwhile .

    I ordered a couple of 2800 batteries from Hobby King and a charging panel.
