R4pt0r, everyone's got you spooked about the brownout thing. Yes, it can happen, but just a little common sense when building your model and it's a non-issue. It's usually with planes that are...

Can't go wrong with that! Just do yourself a favor and pick up an extra battery or 2 as well. Just don't but those E-Flite ones. Too expensive and not great quality.
