what battery larger than a 2 cell 7.4 volt 800 can i use for more power and more flying time and can i use the same charger(balance charger) that came with heli? i have noticed that i just dont seem to have the power that i used to. i have 2 new batteries that are almost the same in performance. i use mine in a blade cx.........also, is there a proper way to break in a battery? i am down to 5 mins. from a battery that is supposed to get approx 15 minutes. i am not heavy on the throttle as im new and trying to learn to fly.

Q1. charger specs?

Q2. how do you know when to quit flying so that you do not overdischarge your batts?

a larger capacity batt such as 1000 can be heavier (usually) and the flight time increase may not be worth the expense...on the other hand a larger cell count can be overkill for the motor...which becomes...

Q3. motor specs?

the charger specs input 11.5-15 VDC output 0.5 A

all i know about motor is it says 180 in manual specs.

i would really like to try a larger battery even if it weighs more and i will have to find one that will fit.

thanks pete
