    hey guys - tried to search but apparently best and battery are common words...

    So : What are your reccommendations for best batteries? How many mAH can we use? I have 2000's right now but i see people saying they run 2250 or 2200, i see batteries listed on sites up to 5000 mAH. I know this will increase size, but what is the best payoff to flight time?

    Right now I am running a gopro 3 in the included mount, a fatshark transmitter and antenna - will be putting a gimble on soon when it arrives from china.

    How can i stay aloft longest?

    thanks guys!

    Man I like the Turnigy 2.2 Nano tech battery from Hobby King. They stay cool and I get thirteen minutes flight time with a camera and mount. I bought 4 and spent 92 dollars shipping included from Singapore.

    I like to buy my batteries from a place called "heads up rc". Good prices and very fast delivery. Not to mention great customer service.
