    Yeah, I've been looking for these batteries for awhile. I want more flight time and these are the only 2 batteries that will do that and fit in the battery tray.

    Thanks,
    Nic

    $43.68x3= $131.04 for the batteries, then I elected for fedex shipping (which was more $$$) $35.43. I think the DHL was $25 if you went that route.

    Finally got to test the Multistar High Capacity 4S 8000mAH Multi-Rotor Lipo pack bought from Hobby King international. Battery made the Typhoon H a little off balance in the back but did not affect anything when it was in flight. Flight time I got out of the battery was about 24 mins. This was just constantly throttling the Typhoon H(back/forth, up/down, and side to side) and was still able to get 24 mins out of this battery. It's not bad at all for a battery that cost about half the price of the OEM battery(including shipping cost from Hong Kong) and gain about 20 to 25% more flight time.

    Nic,
    The battery tray you are using, how well does it lock into place?
    Is it hard to remove after flight?

    Ralphy's battery tray with the Multistar 8000 4S LiPO locks solidly into place...even moreso than the stock battery. Pulling it out is no problem, you just have to push down a bit on the back as you pull since there is a small raised latch on the tray itself. Great pack, and I also get 24 minutes. Also, just FYI...QuadCam makes a tray that comes with the two Dean's connectors...a very nice looking tray as well. However, it shows to be on backorder so no telling when it may become available.
