    Hello

    I have bought 2 different models of lithium batteries, and they suck incredible much compared to the stock from DJI.

    I need some great batteries, eventually with higher amps that can fit into the phantom 1.
    Maybe not the most expensive brand, but a brand that keeps it´s promises.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    How can you fit in 5800 batteries?
    My experiences with Turnigy which I believe is the same as Zippy, are horrible.

    I run 2800 Zippy 30c batteries from hobbyking, at £13 a pop they are amazing VFM.
    i get at least 8 mins with each battery and they fit inside just!

    My Phantom is fully loaded with Gimbal, FPV etc
