Default Extended Flying Time

When I ordered a replacement battery for my little helicopter, I also ordered what I thought were extras about the same size with a 6 port charger. They turned out to be too large, and for $25.00 , I figured the hassle to return them wasn`t worth it. I figured out that I could adapt my little Horizon Sport Cub to use these, and with a little soldering and a rubber band, I can now fly the little cub for at least 20 minutes now. That's all the time I put on the transmitter but I`ll bet it could go at least 30. Also the connector on the battery has little polarity tabs. These need to be trimmed to fit it the standard style connector that I soldered on to the planes harness.

Very interesting. I have used a rubber band on my sport cub s, before I got new Velcro cause batteries would come back hanging down like airplane nuts under th wheel. ��

nice pictures too.

Is the motor handling the longer run times okay?

How does the cg feel?

Hi CFinn,
The motor seems to hold up fine. I fly with the throttle just over 1/2 most of the time to not climb too much. A little more nose heavy but it still flies good. I know the stated flight time is a little hard to believe, but honestly, I can fly around the back yard for at least 20 minutes on one battery.
