    What battery are you using for 250-ish quad?

    Hey friends, if you are flying 3S 250-ish quad, what battery are you using the most? Size & C

    Anything from 1300mAH 45C through 1500mAH 35C will do the trick.

    You won't see too much difference in flight-times but if you use the 1300mAH packs you will notice the lower weight by way of more spritely performance.

    I've been using the Turnigy NanoTech packs with great success.

    I primarily use Nanotech 1300 45C on my FPV250 Ghost edition and I fly for 6 minutes with plenty of reserve
    I also use Zippy 1800 35C on the same mini quad and fly for 8 minutes.
    I've also flown with 2200 mah batteries but that was pretty porky.
    It really flies best with the 1300

    Right now, Pulse 35c 1350 are outflying every other 1300 size pack I own. They are slightly larger and a few grams heavier than my other 1300s, but not by very much. $19 out the door at the local hobby shop.

    The one thing I know how to do well with FPV - crash. All in a day of fun!
    I believe landing is a full body experience .... I do my best to aim for your body.

    I fly nano tech 1500mAh 30-60C batteries. They come in at 116g, which is lighter than the nano-tech 1300mAh batteries.

    I used to go with "low" discharge (35C) zippy compact 1800mAh and 2200mAh but there is way too much voltage sag towards the end which means flight times aren't any longer (sometimes shorter with the 2200mAh) than my 1500mAh setup.

    How does it feel wirh your 450 class heli batts? Have same batts but would consider the smaller 1050 mah packs instead. What air time you get?
