Superb – 900mAh Lithium Polymer Battery for E_Sky Lama V3 V4 (LiPo) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Fits the Syma S301G RC helicopter giving over 11 minutes continuous flight time. Same weight as the OEM battery. Cheap Decent quality. Durability? Only time will tell.
Cons:
Longer charging time so consider a higher rate charger and/or extra batteries. I suggest that at these prices you consider both. The battery is taller than the OEM battery so the cage needs to be removed and a simple light wire cage constructed which is very easy to do. The battery needs to be angled forward at the base to reduce the effective height.
Other:
The Syma blades are expensive but the White Llama blades 14985 will fit the Syma 301 However the flight time is reduced to under 9 minutes as they don't give the same amount of lift. They do, however, make the 301 far more controllable in the average indoor room due to reduced air turbulence. Conclusions: These batteries are a must. Llama blades indoors and the OEM 301 blades for outdoors.
Bottomline:
If you run a Syma S301G then you you just cannot afford not to buy these batteries and a higher rate charger to get the most out of it.
