I apologize if this has been addressed in the past but what wondering if I could impose on the experience of the forum members as I am rather new to helis. Could you pls tell me some of your preferred battery choices for the Trex 600 efl pro. Sizes (mAh), name brand and C rating would be greatly appreciated. Coming from an offroad buggy background I used Nono techs with much success was wondering if these batteries are suitable for helis. Mainly want to hear the conscensus. Tia.

As far as mah, I don't know which is best for the EFL pro. I can tell you that for helis, I won't go any less than a 30c battery. As far as brands, I have found the sky lipo's to be the best bang for the buck from hobbypartz.com.

There is a thread here on the site that is 600EFL Pro specific.

Nano techs are fine, The c rating may depend on your flying style, If you are just learning and not doing 3d a lower C rating will be ok for a while.
I have been using Turnigy 5000 6s 30c for about 2 years, they are starting to get puffy, but lately I have been using them harder than I use to. They have been used in 550, 600 and 700 helis 6s and 12s. Have never had the EFL pro, So I can't say for sure, but the lipos I used I think will be fine for the EFL.

That is one thing that is nice about the sky lipos. They don't puff like the turnigy's do.
If you are just learning and not doing 3d a lower C rating will be ok for a while.
Regardless, I would not go below 30c. Heli's are harder on batterys even when you are just hovering.

A 6s 4000mAh 25-30c will be good.
