Hello Flyers

I have just acquired a PNP Radian 2M glider that will be fitted with Futaba R/C. Sport flying use only.

Hobby Zone recommend a 1350 mAh 3s 30C.

I note that the battery space is quite limited. I'm reluctant to fit an E Flite battery as they seem rather expensive.

HK offer a 1300 mAh 30C 3s with the right dimensions?

Has anyone any other suggestions for a battery that fits the cockpit compartment please, hopefully based upon experience of using this model?

hello SW,i would say you go with what you have found,if it fits ok in the space...HK battery's are fine/fit for the purpose...I use lots of 1300 ma/ 3s lipo's that came from BRC hobbies as chips and do the job great...…...probably made in the same place as all the rest of lipo's...

Never had a Radian but HobbyKing LiPOs are fine, I like the Zippy batteries they seem a good balance of price V performance / longevity, the Compact versions are just that, slightly smaller but slightly more costly

The HV ones are good but your charger may not have a setting for them.

30C should be ample but check the current draw with a Wattmeter.

Thanks for the info on batteries. Reassured, I'll go for the HK version (Turnigy brand name)
