Anyone have any recommendations for which battery will work best with the mini tricopter?9 September, 2015 at 09:26 #19218
David wrote something like 4S 1800 35+C should be good enough. I would definitely recommend 40C at least. 1.8*35=63, which is 3A higher than the designed motor input at full throttle. I would give it a few extra amps without going into burst mode, just for sustainable forward flight with all the gear working. ((;9 September, 2015 at 10:41 #19222CrassParticipant
I saw that a few minutes after posting that question. Going to look at some batteries now. Cant wait to fly the mini.9 September, 2015 at 12:15 #19225TerjeModerator
I will be testing the Turnigy nano-tech A-SPEC G2 1800mah 4S 65~130C Lipo once they arrive, stay tuned 🙂9 September, 2015 at 17:09 #19239
These look angry (and very expensive too)! Let us know if it’s worth it, compared to:

Be aware that just about every manufacturer put a C rating that’s quite a lot higher than the actual C rating. Especially the cheaper manufacturers.11 September, 2015 at 16:31 #19336TerjeModerator
The Turnigy nano-tech A-SPEC G2 1800mah 4S 65~130C are really great, no more “Low battery” warning every time I turn up the throttle (voltage drop) fits perfectly. It weighs in at about 207g and achieve 5 min flight time easily.
The ZIPPY Flightmax 2200mAh 4S1P 40C also fits and performs decently. Weighs in at about 243g
The MultiStar Race Spec 4S 1400mAh 40-80C are light, but after less than a minute you get low battery warnings (voltage drop) About 3 minutes of flight time. 160g.11 September, 2015 at 18:51 #19339
Thanks, Terje! Keep testing and posting results. (:
