You can use bigger batteries but once you get that big the batteries get too heavy to be worth it.

Dogs come when called. Cats take a message and get back to you later.

I ran a 2650 on mine but I had it zipped tied between the skids for CG reasons.
It just flies like you have a scale fuse on when you run heavy batteries like that.

I'm running some FlightPower 2500 in mine and honestly I can't tell any real flight difference other than slightly longer flight times and better "punch" over the stock battery.
