Default Latest 110 battery preferences

Last time I got a lot of packs for this heli, I got the Glaciers. They've given me a good run, but it's now time to get some new ones and they no longer make the Glaciers.

What are people using/liking?

I've had pretty good luck with these:

Turnigy Graphene 600mAh 1S 65C LiPo Pack w/JST

But these are quite heavy and the wires tend to break where they come out of the battery if you put any tension on them. Also, HK has been out of stock for a long time and I don't know if they are ever coming back.

Thus, I, too, am looking for some good K110 batteries. I'll go inquire over on RCG where the real micro-heli action is - I remember them talking about some really good batteries a while back...

All the ones I'd recommend are also NLA. Luckily I have a ton of them including some NIP spares. I use them on my 120S's and they also fit a few of the cheapo quads I never fly.

My last batch were Venom 500's with JST. The price doubled after I ordered them. Before that I got some cheap ones called Keenstone that have been superb. I don't put much faith in 1S lipos lasting. The best even smaller ones have been the Tattu I use on the Nano and Inductrix. Maybe they make a size for the K110.

Best batteries
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078Y3Y4ZZ/ref=dp_prsubs_1
Or, whenever they are available,
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Don’t let the weight fool you, they have more punch than any pack I have had, if you are into 3D this is the way to go. and i tough that Glacier were the way to go until I got this babies, I was lucky to get the last 2 600mah that has more power than the 450mah, not sure if the will be back on stock, I guess you can find them in the web, but expensive, a pack of 6.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
$16 for a pair on eBay
Perfect fit

Great little packs that still perform well over a year of flying, grate for 3D
https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-...___store=en_us

Good batteries but a little wider, would fit on heli but you really need to work to make it fit
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Overall, I would recommend you the Gaoneng (GNB) if you want more steady power and if you are into 3D, if not, and just flying around and 3D with power and not sagging past 3:30 minutes, Nano-tech 300mah, just remember that you will need an JST connector on any of the above

Nano Tech 300's for 3D. Last time I purchased them the polarity was reversed. Easy to change.

Any recommendations for decent batteries that don't require changing the connector?

Not that I know.

I recommend you to replace the connector for JST.
The one that comes as stock is very fragile, soon or later it would give you problems, they break from the pins, misalignments and poor power.

The GOOs have the stock connector and aren't half bad. Here's a link to a 5 pack (you can get them in other quantities as well):

3.7V 520mAh 30C Upgraded Lipo Battery

This is probably a really dumb question but how do you compensate for the reversed polarity on the esc when adding a JST connector?

I ordered the gnb batteries from amazon a few months ago and the ones that arrived did have the micro losi connectors on them even though I already had adapters I didnít need to use them

You really are the professor when it comes to this heli, so I 100% trust your advise!

I don't care much about flight time - I want the most power/3D capability I can get - which one should I go for then?

GNB 450mAh 3.8v or GNB 600mAh 3.7v?

I would expect the HV one to be a bit more powerful plus you have less weight. But it's all just numbers.

From past experience with the Nano when I tried all there was - I found out the mylipo.de had some extraordinary good batteries. So I was thinking maybe this would be worth a shot:

mylipo 470mAh 3,8V 1S HV 50C/100C 65x17x6,5mm
https://www.mylipo.de/mylipo-470mAh-...bel-Stecker-XL

Old findings:
Goo are better than the stock batteries
Goo are just as good (and cheaper) than Hyperions

Motor:
Is there a point in upgrading the motor Salrica? I can really feel the difference between a good and not so good battery pack - so I'm thinking the motor can "deliver more" if the battery is better. Then there's no point in upgrading the motor as I see it.

Just ordered four of these from MyLipo:
Click image for larger version

Name:	mylipo-450mah-37v-1s-50c-100c-fpv-parcour-kabel-stecker-xl.jpg
Views:	2
Size:	28.8 KB
ID:	810543
https://www.mylipo.de/mylipo-450mAh-...bel-Stecker-XL
(same size but non-HV)

The HV version was not in until late october/november.

But according to Boris at MyLipo:
"The HV version in the first seconds has a little more punch over the 3.7v version, but only the first 10-15 seconds.
Generally the non-HV will be more stable in chemistry for a longer lifetime. A HV-lipo needs a little more care from the owner as it is more sensitive to mishandling."

From my past experience 1S lipos are normally only good for 1 year, then you buy new ones. Should be mentioned though that mine are more or less always fully charged so I can fly anytime (almost daily).
