About the batteries
FrSKY chose to go with 18500 cells, which have very limited availability compared to 18650. We have secured a small supply of batteries. The Panasonic is the largest capacity available at 2000mAh but there were not enough available to fill all orders so we also sourced some 1100mAh at a great price to fill the void. Based on FrSKYs posted current draw of 190mA, the 1100mAh should last 5 hours and the 2000mAh should last around 10 hours. In order to make sure they go around, each purchase is limited to one set of Panasonic and two sets of the 1100 (which make a great backup battery). You can check as many boxes above as you wish.
