What's a good battery for the mcpx that will extent flight times a bit?

With out the proper testing equipment all anyone has is just their opinion. I bought some Lectron Pro 300mAH 35C for $5.50 apiece off of ebay. So far they have worked fine. I did a search on them and found one guy that said they are junk but gave no explanation as to why. It also depends on how the battery is cared for that will determine what a person thinks about it. I also have Hyperion 250mAH 25C and they give good flight times too.

Remember that the little motor in a mCPX needs a break to cool down or its life will be shortened.

i havent yet purchased these myself, but have read a lot of people saying these are the best cheap batteries. i really want to buy some of these as i read nothing but good things about them! at $4.99 each you cant lose!

i only currently have 2 stock batteries and 1 of these from lhs:

best thing is both of these fit straight in with no mods required! i have also read good things about hyperion batteries, but i think for the bigger ones you have to modify the battery tray.

They will fit ok won't they without any modification to the battery tray?

Just shove them in. The stock tray has some flex. I have put a 550 into mine and it will still hold the 200 stockers.

I have tried four different Batts, I fined I get the most time in the air with the MicroHeli 300mAh 35c, next being the ProTek 300mAh 35c and lowest amount of time with the stock.

well thats good to know - from what i had read i you needed to mod the stock battery tray for these.
how much flight time do you get out of the 550? im assuming this is hyperion also? the more flight time the better!!
