Default Micro batterys

I just bought a hobbyzone champ and a night vapor. Im wondering what kind of batterys everyone is using. I bought some lightmax 138mah and they wore out very fast but the stock e flight seem to work fine still.

I bought some zippy lightmax 138mah and all of them are junk it must have been a bad batch. Then I ordered some 170mah G-Force batterys from Value hobby after just one battery I went inside and ordered a bunch more wow I love the flight time with these batteries.

Great question! Thanks for asking-helps me out, too! I really need to get off these boards and go change the brake pads on my wife's car. But your question made another pop into my head. Going to post it under a new topic.

All of my landings are three point landings if you count the spinner, too
