Question about batteries and range
I'm looking to increase my flight time. I already have the radio system for it (DragonLink) and now I'm working on the power system.
It has been my understanding that as long as the C rating on batteries are the same, you can use any size (in terms of mAH) that you would like.
Ex: If a plane requires a (theoretical) battery of 1800mAh with a 20C rating, I could use a (theoretical) 3600mAH battery with a 20C rating and have a longer flight time.
Am I understanding this correctly? I've been told the "C" means circuit and refers to the amount of power flowing into the system from the battery.

The C rating tells about the battery discharging ability.
It is also in relation to the battery size in mAh. 1800mA : 20C x1.8A= 36A discharge current max.
Theoretically with 3600mAh you would need only 10C to sustain same max
discharge current (36A).
