battery size limits
I’m building a racing drone and puchased a battery that I believe is too big for my 5 inch drone. Well I guess I need permission to upload am image. Anyway the battery is a 5200mAh 50c 22.2V 115.44Wh Zeee battery. It Looks pretty big to me. Is it right or no.
A 5200mAh 22V battery is too big for a 5” racing drone. 1300mah is best for aggressive response, 1500mAh or 2000mAh batteries are best for longer flight times/ slower response. Any bigger and you might have a hard time controlling the quad
Also- 22V is pretty high voltage- it depends on your setup, but we like to run 4S (16v) 1300mah packs on our 5” setups

also, here is a post about c rating you might find useful- the smaller the battery the more important the c rating becomes, so it might be relevant to the drone you are building:
