Flying your helicopter is by far the best part about owning it; however, sometimes the joy of flying is short lived and you find yourself waiting around by the charger instead of watching your piloting skills at work. Learning how to increase your aircraft's flight time will enable you to experience more flight time per charge, which can result in more time to practice your newest aerial stunts.

Remove the battery pack you are currently using from your helicopter and identify the milli-amp hours that it offers. This figure indicates the energy value of the battery, and it is directly related to the flight time of your aircraft.
Find a battery that exceeds the value of your previous battery; for example, if your stock battery pack is rated at 1000-mAh, look for a battery pack with 1300-mAh. If your controller is used to recharge your mini helicopter and you cannot replace the battery inside the aircraft itself, consider replacing the transmitter pack's batteries with more powerful batteries. If you use alkaline batteries in the transmitter, replace them with more powerful rechargeable batteries.
Install the replacement battery pack, hook it up in the same way you would the stock pack. Charge the battery to full, then take your aircraft for a spin.
