I'll see if I can find my GoPro. I'm sure that was conveniently organized for me too. Right now just waiting for the wind to calm down. Still 15-20mph gusts at the moment. Speaking of, what kind of wind can this thing tolerate??

I flew it in 6 to 10mph.. something like that, and it did fine, couldn't even really tell it was windy at all. I bet it could handle more but it would probably not be that much fun fighting it at 10 -15mph.

RCBabbel's BB240 is the lightest and provides good performance with the added benefit of keeping the plane really light.
I've had nothing with bad luck with Turnigy Nanopuffers. I highly advise against them but other have gotten good ones... try your luck.
Mark's Dinogy are really good. They are fairly light and provide good power. They also seem to be lasting really well. I have 2 that are still going strong long after I thought they'd be flat or puffed.

Just maiden my new to me Habu DF with Nanotech 300. What a great little flyer! It certainly is faster and more precise than Mig-15, but easy to launch and flies very similar to Mig-15. Look forward to several fun flights!

There are lots of posts in this thread on the subject, go read back through some pages or do some searches. You'll get plenty of results.
I'll tell you what I use. Others will have different/ more expensive stuff and I am sure you can find those things in this thread.
I bought a charger last year that works great for these little 1S and 2S batts and is cheap, and programmable and can be plugged into a wall socket.. It is called a "IMAX B6-AC Charger/Discharger 1-6 Cells (GENUINE) (US Warehouse)"
Looks like it is out of stock/ discontinued. I think there's a new version. There are lots of clones of this one though, that are basically the same exact thing with different case.
Also there are also lots "fakes" on e-bay that are very low quality and dangerous. I would not get one of those!
Here's the vers. 2 - it is the genuine, high quality version.
These are the batts I use with the Habu and they are inexpensive and work great for me:
You can spend a lot more money on different batts and chargers though.
Not sure if it's worth it, but hey, it's your money.
Here's my new charger.. great charger for bigger batts but you need a separate power supply.
I did my research and got a great charger for the money.
It is a "Turnigy Reaktor 300W 20A 6S Balance Charger" which is a high quality clone/ re-brand of a
"iCharger 206B 300W 8s Balance/Charger".

-and I use this power supply with it, works just great.

Read through this thread a little and you'll get a lot more recommendations on 300mah 2S batts and chargers too.
I also have some of these:
"PULSE LIPO 300mAh 7.4V 30C"
Great batts, but almost $10 each! In my testing, the 300mah nanotechs are just as good. Maybe the Pulse batts will last longer though, but twice as long? I doubt it. So not sure it is worth the double in price.
I use a "para cord" and charge many 2S batts at once with it, if they are similarly discharged.
Something like this:
