I use turnigy nano tech 5000mah and get two 7 minute flights letting it cool down inbetween flights. Also puts the balance right where it needs to be. I have a scale hughes 500 fuselage so the extra nose weight is NEEDED

I got them with my 500 and it gives me 2 flights each and balances her on the money. I thought the same i was going to sell them but afyer trying them i was stunned at the fact that i basically have 2 flights with one battery so they are keepers. Yes they are too big to fit in canopies but not my hughes fuse.

If it doesn't fit with the standard canapy then its not an ideal battery is it? 6S 3000 is right? ideal I guess..

is that a new heli? Oh no honey, its the same one w/different stickers.....

Shoot for packs that weigh about 430g - 2700mah range. Anything larger and the canopy won't fit properly and balance will be off. Personal experience. This is different than the original Trex-500's

edit: I have used two 2200mah packs and that also worked well for me, minus about a minute of flight time.

I'm using 6S3000 25C fits nice. 5 min at 75% throttle
I tried a 6S3300 50C it was tight and way to heavy
you want some thing in the 450grams range +/- 20 grams

turnigy nanotechs 6s3000 25c are only 40$
they do well on this model for sport flying or non aggressive 3d

spending time, paying attention
