I want to assembly my own quadcopter and I have been seeing which parts are the better for my requirements but I don't know which battery I should use. I have seen the next
which one do you recommend me to buy and why?
I have thought to buy the motors and ESC:
Motor AC2836-358, 880Kv
ESC 30 Amp
Thanks for help me.
In my opinion and what I've done. I feel the higher C rating batteries do better in multi copters..
My experience is around my Hexa. I used the "large" motors from 3dr with a 25-50 Turnigy Nano 6k and 25 amp esc's..
After 20 or so filghts the batteries began puffing a bit..
I switched to 45-90c Turnigy Nano 5k's and they have been fine for many flights..
I feel using the lower C rating and more motors causes the battery to drain faster than intended. as more motors is higher Amps load.
The battery with the higher C will be expecting you to put a higher load on it and handle accordingly..
Actually I would stay as far as possible from Turnigy batteries. Their quality is going up and down. In last 12 months we blew 7 big packs without any reason and after that we stopped to use them. Try to get something better than those. GE, Hyperion, Tigers etc are better choices than Turnigy.
i usethese and they are more then sufficient. I have way more power then i need. (that's from the US warehouse too!)
Try these motors, they work great with 10 props. Try these ESC's too. After trying some cheaper ESC's, I tried these and they are sooooo nice! Throw that on aturnigy HAL frame and you will have a sweet, rugged setup that will survive crashes better then any other frame Ive used, And youll neverneed mo re then 50% throttle (unless you want to lose your quad!)
Weight of the copter and weight of the battery.
Somewhere there is a trade-off. Increasing the size of the battery will not significantly increase the amount of flight time.
I have two quads and use 5000mah batteries for now but I'm just learning how to fly.

Make sure you get their charger, do not charge manually.
