hey
I totally hear you about not having a job and trying to keep the hobby cheap, but those two thoughts actually don't go together when you fly RC helicopters.
I was 16 when I got started and i quickly learned that you can't skimp when it comes to what goes into your heli...

that being said, when you are buying batteries for an electric heli you can't not buy cheap! well you can but they will probably be crappy, not safe, and not last very long...

please save up and get a decent battery...no need to get a top of the line...i would recommend the Air Thunder batteries...they take abuse, will give you probably the best flight time, they are competitively priced, their safer than most, and they have awesome customer service and replacement warranty backing.

my advice, if you can't afford a $68 battery then
a) get creative and find some way to fund your heli
b) keep saving till you can afford one
c) find a new hobby

sorry for the long post...and I don't to come off as nasty...just giving you some advice from someone who's been there...

Thanks

Yeah dude, get creative on ways to earn money. I'm thirteen and I managed to save up for a 450 ready to fly with the best equipment possible in only about two months. I won't tell ya my secret though

There is nothing wrong with a GY240 gyro, you can find them new for about $80, stay away from the Align 500X it's just a Telebee in a differant package. Mile High Club RC has Align 430XL and 35A ESC combo for $68. I have four Versillo batteries that I bought here on RR new for $35 each, they are 3S 20C 2200mAh, I have had no problems with them, I even flew them in my 600. I don't like Thunder Power, I think there over priced and over rated, I have three that require balancing before every charge. I prefer EVOs, Hyperion, Engerlan, and Common Sense, my oldest battery is Common Sense, and I only have to balance it about every ten cycles, and it still performs like the day I bought it.

FMA Revolution lipos are excellent and very well-priced. As for gyro, you can grab a used 401 for $90-$100.
