I got an email but cant find the post that you were looking for a 4s 20,000mah battery. We were just discussing that and the tenergy 16000mah battery. the 16,000 tenergy has been tried on the x8 and works quite well. the link below is for a 20,000mah battery but there is a question regarding the weight as two different numbers are given and both are high. The tenergy can be bought at hobbyking the cheapest as of last discussion and its a good brand it does come with a xt90 connector so you would have to get the adapter or solder a xt60 on it. I have 2 of them and they work great. I think 3DR sells them with the xt60 on it or someone said they did. Hope this helps. any questions send a note.

Happy flying,

There is an outfit call Quadrocopter.ca
Not to be con fused with Quadrocopter.com. They sell 4s 20,000mah made by AGA Power. Reasonably priced too. They are in Montreal. Best of luck with your search.

Just go to the function menu on the T8FG and program RD or LD (your choice) dial to Ch8. The open Mission Planner, initial configuration, flight modes. If you had calibrated the radio, you should see the PWM change as you rotate the dial. Then select the dialog box for the function you want. When I dial LD full counterclockwise, it is in Manual, then it goes to FBWA, FBWB, then RTL when full clockwise. You can choose which mode you want as you move the dial.
