    What is the best upgraded battery that will fit in the Phantom 1.1.1, I'm looking for a 2700mah or up for under 30 bucks if anyone knows of any!

    Those are now my go-to batts for the Phantom, best value on a quality battery with larger capacity than stock, and will still fit inside the bay. Combining one of those with the P2V stock props gets me around 11 min avg flight time with gopro and gimbal.

    Thanks for the reply's, I've checked out that battery before but couldn't find the link to it. Instead I went with this one.

    Slightly smaller and same weight as the Mad Dog the only thing is is that it's coming from China! It says 7-20 days so I may get it in 30. But for the price I figured what the hell, Has any one bought off banggood.com before and has any member used the Black Magic brand battery?

    Just modified my setup to take dual batteries. AUW is 1347g. I am running 2 x 2750 mah bats with combined weight of 404g. I have AeroXcraft gimbal and immersion FPV Vtx. I fit the two bats internally, which is very snug. Oh also have fitted the Vision props. Get a flight time of 16 mins before red light starts flashing indicating battery getting low. I get a further 3 minutes before forced landing takes place. Still quite responsive in flight, which surprised me considering weight, and hovers fine without the need to adjust any gains. Very pleased!

    The batteries were bought in the uk from http://www.firstpersonview.co.uk

    havent tried these but i bought some 2500's from banggood and they were junk, didnt hold a charge. Asked for a refund and they made me make a video to prove the batteries were junk. I know banggood is just the retailer but I have stopped using them due to crappy customer service

    I've bought eight of those in the past for my 450 class helicopter. I really like them, lasted around three years and I pounded on them. (Finally they puffed up and died). When I need new batts. for my Phantom, these will be the one, but I'll go with a 30C.
