I'm using OutRage 2200 Mah 25c in my Hurricane with the Z30 motor and 75 amp esc, I get about about 6 mins just sport flying. I have purchased 2 3300 Mah to try to stretch that to about 8 or 9 mins. You can get the Zippy 20c 3300 mah from HobbyCity for about $42.00 apiece. You would get good flight times with those in your stock set-up, hope this helps!

Can you use a splitter and charge that battery as 2 3s 3300 Mah batteries?

A 6-cell is a tough fit for the plastic frame, but two of
the 3-cell will fit fine.

Best batteries for stock set up.

Ok, everyone recommends a 3300 battery, but using two of them won't it be too heavy for the stock Hurricanne 550. There are also 2500 batteries that might be lighter. Can you let me know.
See I just want to make regular flight and get the longest flight time.I have a Robee Heli Command on my heli I think that the batteries will be using up more power.
Thanks
Newbie

I bought my 550 from AusseyG and he modified the front end of it to accept the 6S with ease.
brilliant mod and makes batteries so much easier to deal with.

1 6S 3300 fits very well.

Im told on other 550 forums that 1 6S will also fit on the top plastic mount if you just move the canopy a tad.
