    I seen this add today while ordering a new battery. (one of mine failed in a tragic voltage check, I was stupid for a moment) Just wondering if it is worth looking into.

    I have not tried them on my Phantom but saw a demo of ThunderPower over the weekend and they really are a class A company.

    You can go to their website and I am sure they can answer any questions you may have. They are also in the USA.

    I can't say much about Thunder Power lipos for the quadcopter but I used them exclusively on my R/Cs. The lipos are phenomemal and their warranty is one of the best around. They guarantee their lipos for two years. I had two puff on me and I sent them back with a copy of my receipt. I recieved two no ones within 7 days. Outstanding Custumer service.

    The question to ask is will this lipo fit in the Phantom. I'm guessing at 2700 mAh, it may be a tight squeeze but I'm not sure.

    I've had 2 for about a month and a half now they're great! No problem fitting them in the Phantom battery compartment what so ever. There is an extension that is on the balance wire, which is nice. I'm getting a good 2 or 3 more minutes flying time over the best of my 2200's. The only bummer is the price. I think they are worth it!
    They're also assembled in thr USA of US and foreign components.
    They have a bunch of different models. The ones I use are the 2700mAh G8 Pro Lite + 25C/50C burst. #TP2700-3SPP25

    This is the link to the battery, the previous one was broken: http://www.rctoys.com/rc-products/DJI-BATT-UPGRADE.html

    The price is a bit more than I'm used to, but the free shipping is nice, and I can use it with the stock Phantom charger! :D I didn't even need to use the battery bay expander to fit this mama in there, and didn't have to solder a thing. Thunder Power makes some fantastic batteries!
