Yep, I figured that out, Allen. And the gearsets loosened just a bit with the first flight. The 2200 ma LiPo i got from techntoys was excellent. It fits right in the stock battery box (with no trimming tabs) and sliding it foward to the stop made the chopper balance perfect. (and is 16 gm lighter than the stock one) I get 9 min flights and am not even close to max discharge levels. 2+ hours to charge isnt so much fun for this hardcore addict... perhaps a fancy charger is in my future.
