If your balance was good with the old battery, weigh it then see how big you can go with a 2S. Try and stay close to the original weight. of the old battery if you were happy with the way it flew.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

I run a 2500 2S on my HK600 with Align electronics and recharge after 12 flights putting back ~1600mA. I have the battery mounted on the side centered on the main shaft.

okay nice thank you for your info. sounds like im getting the 2500mah 2s..thank you very much, i might see about a small kinda long and skinny to vary the weight over a bigger surface area and put right there on the bottom plate in front of the motor and have it hanging out the back(tail) of the heli to plug in..

thanks again man!

I have the 3600 outrage packs, I can fly all day with them but thinking of going down to 2200 or 2500. 3600 is overkill. But not when in had the spektrum 6040 servos. They are power hungry servos. I am flying d610s now.

I'd never put a 5400 in a 600 class machine. too heavy.

I use the Fromeco 2600's and get 6 flights which is enough. 110gm weight

3S is a very good idea.
I took the 1200mAh 2S off my Trex 500 and replaced it with a 980mAh 3S and doubled the flight time for the RX pack to 18 flights.

Higher voltage=lower amperage.

Make sure your BEC can handle 3S.

I literally never use the word literally right.
