Hi, anyone can tell me what is the biggest battery that can fit MSR without changing the CG?

Thank you.

You can get 150 mah. They are longer, but they got a piece of shrink tubing so when you put them in they only go so far and supposedly MSR is balanced

You can get a Zippy 1S 240mAh 20C from HobbyKing HongKong.[$3]

Its about 25mm square and 6mm thick.

Weight is 4 to 5g, [simular to the 150mAh E-Flite]

You will have to buy with the battery, your own leads[mini JST] and solder them onto it, as it comes with tabs.
Be very careful of poalrity.

The leads come in a pack of 5.
Use one lead pluged into your charger permitily to make it easier to hook up battery to charger.
Again, be very carefull of polarity.[mark the lead plugs]

You will get about 10mins flying time from the 240mAh battery.
You should get 8 mins from a 150mAh battery.[bit expensive though]

The MSR burns about 20mA per min.

Just stick it on the bottom of the battery carrier with velcro.
Keep the centre of gravity[battery position] simular to the other batteries.

It looks a bit average, but works fine, cheap, and does not effect the Heli much.
If anything, like the 150mAh battery, it makes it nicer to fly with the bit of extra weight.

Good Heli flying is throwing it at the ground and missing

CG? I like the mSR with more weight up front, I took off the indexing shrink wrap and shoved the thing forward. Yes a different trim, but right on top, with no additional sub trims. Also yes too costly. I go 6 min with the 150. Thanks, I have to look for the Zippy 240!
How are you making out with the motor. Chris
