You mean more like 1 hour to recharge, plus you need to let the lipo cool off before you attempt to recharge. You also want to make sure you do not bring the battery down past 80 percent.

This is also why a lot of people end up going into nitro. As you only have one battery to worry about and it will last for more then one flight, so all you have to do is refuel, restart and your good to fly again.

I most likely will go nitro at some point, but right now I'm gonna run this for a while.

I was gonna buy another battery on the way home today, but I read that the EVO Flightpowers aren't very good batteries and that's all the hobby shop around here carries.

Any recommendations on what battery I should buy instead?

I use outrage 30C packs.
Thanks for the recommendation.. I'll check 'em out.

Maybe I'm not searching for the right terms, but I can't find very many posts on this site about which battery manufacturers are considered to have quality batteries.

You will probably get a mix of different recommendations on which batteries are good. Some will suggest high end prices and some low ends. Some say these low end batteries puffs up after the first flight and vise versa. I have tried several different brands and none have ever puff up on me. I think it is how you treat the batteries and charge them that make it last.

In the end, you will have to make the final decision yourself.

Personaly I use these from hobbycity and have never had a problem. Then again I never run them below 80 percent, always wait for them to cool off before charging. For the price they are pretty good and have not had any problems.

if you want to charge faster try and charge them to 95% of there capacity instead of the full 100% It wont harm your packs and its the last 5% of the charge that can take up to 10-15 mins or longer depending on pack size. Try it and see.I know I used lock tight why did my head explode

Ordered two Zippy's yesterday... $52 for two 2200mah batteries shipped in 3-5 days isn't bad at all. I paid $76 for one EVO FlightPower at the LHS. Depending on how well they do, I'll probably pick up two more. Five batteries should be enough for now.

Flew again last night (3rd time), hovering is getting pretty good. I can move left, right, forward and backward in a big x shape. Gonna try some tail-in circles later today. I don't want to rush learning and end up being sloppy, but I REALLY want to try some forward flight. Easy enough in the sim. I have a feeling my first crash will be after I start doing forward flight
