Question
How should I go about upgrading an Rc heli battery?

What I want is to keep flying for longer, what I have now is a 3 cell 11.1V 1500mAh Li-polymer battery and I only get about 10 minutes of flight time. I want a battery that gives me the most flight time, so which is it? And what should I look for, higher mAhs or Vs?

Don't know what heli you are flying but longer flight times and heavier batteries tend to burn out the motors quicker.

You will get less performance because of the extra weight in the battery.

If you still want to go ahead it's bigger mAh.
