Looking for more flight time than a LiPo battery upgrade is the way to go. With this high capacity battery you will get 15 to 20 minute flight time! This battery not only higher capacity but it does so with no weight gain. By getting rid of the heavy hard case that the original stock battery has and substituting it with a tough plastic shrink wrap case. Remember you can charge this battery with the stock AR.Drone 1.0 charger OR charge in 45 min with a hobby store grade battery charger.

The fact that the seller took the initiative and contacted me to offer a replacement gives me great confidence in his product. I would purchase again from him.
My advice: If you think you have a problem with one of their products, give them a chance to make it right instead of broadcasting the issue to the world as an Amazon gripe. You'll probably be pleasantly surprised.
- an Authentic AR.Drone battery @1000ma, merely costing my first born (which was under consideration, I assure you)
- a Chinese knock off of the AR.Drone V2 battery, at 1800ma (which I admit, I purchased)
- the Bastens AR.Drone battery @1300ma and very reasonably priced.
the Chinese knock off sounded like a winner - but 1800ma comes with one little caveat that V1.0 users HAVE to deal with....it's too damned heavy, and makes the Drone unstable.
The Bastens, however, worked flawlessly. SLIGHTLY heavier than the original battery (but in the Drone, with the outdoor hull, it still weighs less than the stock battery in the Drone with the indoor hull), it gives you a good five minutes more of fly time. It charges relatively quickly, and at the end of the day, more fly time is what it's all about, right? Totally worth it.
