Hi Stan Sorry if I wasn't clear. Use a single Blace mCX battery.The Blade mCX Heli batteries are made up of 2 x 120mah cells (give or take 10 mah depending on the brand). This should easily fly the Bug for an hour or more. You could give up a little flight time and save another couple of grams by using a 2x80mah battery, but you would have to build that yourself from single cells. I like using these since a lot of us already have a mCX. All you need is a pigtail, which most hobby stores have in stock. If you don't have a mCX, buy one. They are a hoot. The same batteries are also used in a verity of planes. If all else fails, the batteries and charger are also at most hobby stores.
