    Hey everyone
    Im looking into getting 10-15 batteries total for the 215 so i can start going out on adventures and getting a full day of flying.

    What battery do you suggest for the f215 and is there a spwcific charger you use that can charge multiple batteries at once?
    I dont have a 12v power supply either. Just been plugging my stock charger into the wall outlet.

    Also i live in Hawaii/USA since it doesnt show under my icon

    Also since the f210 requires an outdated version of cleanflight. V 1.2.0 actually took me a bit of research to find that out and get a working version in full english. does anyone know what version needs to be downloaded for the 215?
    When i downloaded the software for my f210 off of walkeras page it gave me v 1.1.0 and half of the words were chinese half were english.....

    Get Cleanflight 1.2.0 from our resources section. We have lots of stuff there. If you look at the top of our web page you will see a resources TAB. Use it.

    You cant charge multiple batteries from the standard charger.

    I make up my own Parallel charge leads and use a RadioLink CP620 Charger. Don't use a normal LIPo charge you need one that will balance charge through the Balance leads once a cell in the set reaches full charge or you will blow your batteries.

    These are a hybrid charger. Read how they work.

    Radiolink CP620 750W 30A Battery Charger Hybrid Balance Charger For RC Models

    This is an example of a self built multi battery charge lead. This charges 5 2S batteries at a time. You can make the cable up to 8S if in need.

    I was suggesting that you load 1.2.0 from our resources section for your 210 as it is in English.

    I only use 1.2.0 now for all my Walkera models.

    NP. Just make sure if you do build your own Mult-Charge leads to charge use the charge current n-1.

    So if they are 800mah batteries. You would charge a single battery at .8 amps.

    So if you have 3 batteries in parallel then n=3 so (0.8A x 3) - 0.8 = 1.6 Amps
    So if you have 5 batteries in parallel then n=5 so (0.8A x 5) - 0.8 = 3.2 Amps

    This is assuming 1C Rated charging batteries.

    If you want to flight fast, such racing, you can choose Tattu 1300mAh 4S 95C Lipo battery, or just for a free style, you can consider 1300mAh 4S 75C OR 1300MaH 4s 45c.

    This makes no sense? What do you think the C rating is?
