    I have a phantom 1 im running dual batteries, anyone have any suggestions on what is the best way to go with duals, like what size to use looking for longer flight time with least weight possible. Im still kinda new to this and im sure this is a basic question but please if anyone has any good and bads of different batteries they tried please share your opinions thank you

    I've been running with the ubiquitous Turnigy 2200mAh on my Phantom V1 but I'm considering doing a modification to allow the use of the newer Multistar 4000mAh batteries. I've been running these, two in parallel, on my F550 Hex and I'm very pleased with the performance.

    These 4000mAh 3s 10c Multistar batteries are just slightly larger and about 20grams heavier than a standard 2200mAh battery and with a slight alteration to the battery tray of the Phantom they will fit providing about an extra 70%, or more, of flight time.

    Here Mike H shows all that's required.
