I am new to the RC Helicopter world done a lot of sims and flown a few friends but never got into the parts and what not I wish to start out small a simple 4 chn. However I do not like the stock flight times of the batteries and chargers some of the ones I have been looking at claim 3-5 hours charge for 8-10 Minute flight.

I am wondering if this is just a miscalculation on there part OR if I really do need to find a way to get a better battery or make one even I am very good with electronics. Thank you for reading and any information helps, have a great day!

There are many chargers that will do a lot better that 3-5 hours.If you get into a lipo battery about an hour to charge is normal. A 6 minute flight is about all your gonna get with most electric helis, that's just the way it is.

Thank you for your reply!

So then the solution is several batteries or a gas heli? I suppose batteries are not TO expensive but where to buy the one with the right connectors?

Yes, more than one battery is recommended. There are lots of venders out there to get good batteries from. Depending on what heli you have the standard is to use Deans plugs. Good batteries like Flight Power and Thunder Power don't usually come with plugs intalled.Plug choice is up to you. Did i mention Deans plugs??

Gas Heli??

I assume you mean nitro. Yes that's another option. Just pump in fuel and go. Nitro Rules!!!!

Hi Malion,

It might help if you gave us the name of the Heli and the battery you're currently using. There's a steep learning curve in this hobby and most people here on RR will do there best to help you out. Welcome to the Hobby.

Also... help us get to know you better, fill out you're profile a little.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

Battery

Hey guys I just got a ZIPPY pack 2100mah 11.1volt it cost $19.99 and it gives me just as good flight time as both of my $70 thunder power packs. Also the zippy pack comes with a Deans plug already on it. I fly a Thunder Tiger Mini titan with the packs and a Stryker plane so far the Zippy is doing great.
