Hello all. Just starting out with drone flying, with my Yunneec Typhoon 500+ drone, but the battery type concerns me as its a Lipo type, and as you know these are volatile batteries.
So does anyone know of an ordinary battery, instead of a Lipo type, I can use in my aircraft please?
@Neil Nice to hear from you and welcome! Lithium-ion batteries generally last longer than lithium-polymer batteries. An average lithium-ion battery can last two to three years, whereas lithium-polymer batteries have a much shorter life span. That’s because the gel-based electrolyte begins to harden in Li-Po batteries. Lithium batteries are compatible with your drone model. Compatible Lithium batteries cost ranges betwen $105.00 - $120.00. You can purchase Typhoon H Lithium batteries on line at Amazon, Ebay and other retail stores carrying electronic supplies. Hope this helps!
@Neil I found this Amazon link.for a lithium battery: at Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/4f8227ty
Also, there are several non-Amazon lithium resellers available as well such as BatteryClerk.com, Walmart SuperCenter (may or may not be in your area) as well as Best Buy.retailer store if avaialbe in your area or you can order online. I hope this is helpful to you. Please let us know if these options work for a lithium replacement battery for your Typhoon drone.
how do you like the Yunneec Typhoon 500+ ? I am not familiar with that type of drone, is it an FPV? I am very interested in FPV I love playing DRL Sim on XBOX and I am looking into purchasing an FPV drone.
Hi there. Am very new to drone flying, so havent flown it much at all as the LIPO type battery worries me jence looking for a NON lipo type battery, then will fly it more.
What does FPV and DRL mean?
