Hey guys,

Looking to obviously ditch the Align RX Lipo and replace it with something more trustworthy and longer lasting.

Whats the best fit battery and the largest size really.

Thinking the Flightpower Evo-Rx 2100mah 2s1p or the Evo-Lite 2500mah 2s1p

Maybe just let me know what sizes/brands you use and maybe a picture of mounting

if you put your battery on the lower front tray under the main battery those would fit. i would go with the 2100 should give a long life, shoot i use the stock align battery and get 6 fights before i charge it. I personally like to use zippy brand batteries for my helis and planes you cant beat the cost. they last a really long time and i have one over a year old and still going strong.

I think Ben-T-Spindle is suggesting you ditch the rx lipo totally and fit the BEC and at the same time save a bit of weight. That's what I would do. Can't go wrong with a WR.

Rx Battery – NOT
I have found that a good quality BEC is more reliable than an extra battery and switch and you get a lighter weight helicopter. It is beyond my why Align would design it with a separate battery in the first place. I suppose it’s all about more proffit as they can sell you more batteries.

I run a 2 cell Outrage 2500mAh battery and really like it. I use it on all my machines.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

+1 on the Outrage 2s 2500mAh, that's what I use.

It wasn't that long ago when they mostly designed and made vacuumn cleaners and electric motors.
