  1. Can I put 1300mAh 14.8V 75C or 95C with this drone? Is it safe? Sorry, I’m a newbie in FPV world. I see they have 1100mAh 11.1V 50C included and with better battery = better performances.

    • Hi Michael and welcome to FirstQuadcopter!
      A higher C rating provides extra instant power when needed (flips, power loops, full throttle, etc). For regular flights, the 50C is just fine. A higher C rating can make damage to your drone if this is what you are asking for.

      Please keep us updated on how the Novice-4 performs. You are also welcomed to submit your review in case you are interested.

      • Hi Robert, thanks for your reply.
        What kind of damage? I wanted to try with an 850mAh 70C battery, some guy on YouTube tested it and it performed significantly better. Yes, I should also care about the total weight at the end, because I know that using a higher C plus mAh gives more weight to the drone.

  2. Nice starter kit!
