Default The battery question!

If I was too run (2) 3300ma 6s 40c batteries in parallel on my 600 heli, would I be getting 6600ma.

Or am I still getting only 3300ma to burn off?

Thanks!

Series (S) you add the voltage. Parallel (P) you add the capacity.

3S 3000 in series with 3S 3000 = 6S 3000mah

3S 3000 in parallel with 3S 3000 = 3S 6000mah

Nice gig, I was the arena PA announcer for the Jacksonville Barracudas while they were in town.

The GM actually saw my helicopters in my car one day and thought that meant I was going to fly the blimp, ended up recruiting a couple of folks from my club.
