Agreed, I did some more looking into today while getting out of the house and visited a few hobby shops and talked with some decent people who knew plenty to help me understand my battery pack and the needs of the plane and out in the field.

My battery is a basic 15C, so since I am headed out flying for the first time tomorrow with a "AL" buddy box in Vancouver, I wanted to at least have a second battery. With that being said and the basic knowledge of what I may need for higher C type battery, the only thing I might also want to keep in mind is weight and size of the battery pack.

Looks like I will be looking into a higher 30-50 "C" type battery that's comparable to what I am currently running.

Now I can save some $ and grab 2 more online.
