Best Batteries in 2018

Post by timcadieux » 30 Jan 2018, 23:34

Hello folks, I just purchased a near mint Parrot this weekend. The guy said he never used it and it looks perfect but after charging the battery for 24hrs, I plug it into the drone and my app tells me 38%. I took it outside and it flew for all of about 4-5 min.

I'm happy to buy some new batteries but from what I read, there might be some modding involved, I'm not sure how much I like that, plus it may require another charger?

I think I read that I can get 20min out of the new batteries, if that's the case, I would likely buy two, ideally in a kit.

So, long story short, I'm looking for a recommendation for which batteries to buy. I'm located just outside Ottawa if this helps.

Thx in advance!

There are a lot aftermarket batteries available on ebay for AR Drone 2.0. Any cheap balance charger will do but not your stock charger.

Personally I would rather use Turnigy Nano Tech like recommended in this and many other threads: viewtopic.php?f=89&t=9225

Sweet and delicious apps for your drones.
