    Hi has any one on hear tried the 3d printed battery mod. I've found somewhere local to me to print the case for about £27. And the battery is about £27 so that's £54 For a battery. I'm lead to believe it may give about 30 min flight time on a good day. Considering battery are about £80 each it may be worth it. Just wondering if anyone on hear tried it?

    Shouldn't cost £27 to 3D print a battery...

    The £27 is for a company to print the case of the battery. The material is only £15 for kilo on amozone. But I don't have 3d printer yet.
