    Stick with OEM batteries. You can get them here on Amazon for $117.

    You've got to ask yourself: Is saving $47 worth the cost of my aircraft? Yeah, I know the battery prices suck but I would prefer to trust the OEM batteries. And another thought just popped into my mind, Will DJI perform warranty work on a crash that may or may not be caused by generic batteries?

    Use OEM batteries, last year I got generics for my syma x5, they puffed up and they did not fly as long as my oem even if they where rated higher mah. Your always taking a chance paying less for generics.
