Hey All, I'm starting to get the hang of flying my Falcon 40 but the flight time kinda sucks, since I only have one battery. I get about 5-8 minutes flight time on a single charge. Any advice on battery upgrades or any tweaking that will increase the flight time, or should I just get another battery. I've read a little on lithium batteries and theres a website called rtf-heli.com that has an 11.1v lithium battery. Will that do the trick and if so how much flight time will I get.
Lipo battery is your best bet to increase your flight time. You can get something that's the same capacity, and it will be much lighter, or you could get something with a larger capacity that will weight the same of the NiMH.
I can't say about rtf-heli, but a lot of us buy our stuff from UShobbysupply.com (great prices, fast shipping, very helpful).
You'll have to get a charger that will charge Lipos (and UShobbysupply does sell them).
p.s. we have a great source of Falcon 40 fliers here:
