    Has anyone looked at using one of the new Titan lithium ion batteries to replace the stock Yuneec TH Lipo battery? The Titan 6s 7.0Ah is slightly smaller dimensionally and weights 150 grams less The flight time is said to be roughly 80% longer....or over 30 minutes. Of course we'd have to use one of the sleeve type housing adapters to make the connection. Any thoughts..??

    BTW....they only cost $56.00.

    Looks like max constant discharge rate is only 15 Amps, I believe average current draw for the H is about 25 Amps. Plus the "If this pack is discharged faster than 160 watts constant (less than 32 minutes) and is not actively cooled, it will overheat." is not a good sign. There's not a lot of airflow in the battery compartment. I've noticed that my batteries get pretty warm after flights (112-115°F/ambient temp 70-80°F) and can get hotter if the ambient temperature is higher.
