I'm hesitant to recommend my 1st choice because it seems lots of people don't have sucess with them. I have 10 of the Rayovac 9volt (8.4 really) nimh batteries. They look like traditional 9volt rectangular batteries. They have 150mah capacity and give me 5-6 minute flights. Their weight is only 1.5ounces. They can be sensitive to charging so if you try them be sure to read up on them first.

I also have the 6 cell nicad 270 packs and am not too fond of them. They weigh 2.7 ounces and only yield about 5-6 minute flights since I have to run pretty much full throttle with them. Other choices I've read about are the 720mah AAA nimh batteries. Heavier but much longer run times. Finally I just bought my first li-ion battery pack. It is rated at a whopping 1350mah, 7.2volts and 3.2 ounces. Haven't actually flown with it yet but looks promising.
