The Geronimo is intriguing. If it does show up at the U.S. warehouse I would be tempted myself but I would like to see more reviews. I darn near ordered a Trendy when it first arrived and now it's sounding like a dog. Plus, I'm pretty sure I would have to do a major recovering job on a Geronimo if I want my aged eyes to see it at altitude.

If you do go with a Specter I don't think batteries are really that critical. I've used them as light as 69grams and as heavy as 160grams and it really doesn't make too much difference in performance. My favorite batteries are the Zippy 1600mah. At 116 grams they give me some room to slide them around to adjust the CG and will give me around 8 climbs over a flight that lasts an hour. I like to move the CG forward about 3-5mm when the winds are over about 10mph but the same effect can be had by going to the 160gram 2200mah battery.
