What's the highest mah battery you can use on the msr x without freeing the board?

Looks like some have been using 300mah Nanos and 250mah Hyperions (carrying them in mcpx skids) and aren't hurting them. I dont think I would go higher than that.:badair:

i think the mah of the battery will only affect the flight time and agility of the heli. Too heavy and the heli will feel slugish. If the battery is less than 25c it might wreck the battery because it will get hot. If i'm wrong hopefully someone will correct me :)

For me the Hyperion bare cell 180mAH is the best balance of weight and power ive found this heli. But for learning and practicing the 240mAH Hyperion is what i use.
Ive considered the 320mAH, But i think thats just a bit ovekill weight wise.
As Mordy states the 25C rating is pretty much a requirement. But not only that remember not all companies use the same standards and quality. Even tho a cell says 25C doesnt mean its a true 25C output.
The biggest thing about buying batteries for the MSRX is to buy the best quality you can afford, They will work better and last longer and actually save you money in the long run.
The amps this heli draws is many steps above the old mSR, So what worked in it and passed may very well fail miserbly in this bird.
