Default Two batteries?

Im really short on cash right now and i want to get a better battery because my 600mah is nothing. I have another 600mah so if i hook one up to the on/off switch and another to an empty slot on the reciever will that make it 1200mah or will it do nothing?

it will probably fry your reciever, I would just swap them over

doing that would not only double the capacity, but it would double the voltage, and that is the problem

Looks like you posted this in a couple of places...

Hooking the two packs up in parallel will not double your voltage, but it will double your capacity... get a y-harness and plug them both into your switch...

If you connect them in series, you'll double your voltage... so don't do that!
