How much would the extra 10g affect the planes performance? Is the extra flying time of the 1600 worth the extra weight? Or should I stick with the 1300? Anyone have experience with this type of trade-off? Opinions? Thanks. Gary
Checking your model, it's supposed to weigh in some 10 or 12 ounces. IMHO, you'd never notice another 1/2 ounce, unless you're doing 3D flying or something. Just double check the cg location on the larger battery, so you don't wind up nose heavy.
