I'm adding the battery mod for my MA. I'm thinking of having just one LiPo on the side.

What would be your recommendations regarding the choice of battery, mAh? I'm thinking balancing between weight (stress on motors) and flight time factors.

Cheers

I think, you have to experiment a little.
Start with 1200 or 1500 maH Lipo's.

I am currently having 1 Tattu 1550 Lipo attached and trying 2 1200's within the next week or so.

Safe flights

Please, let me know how it works out! I'm thinking of just one, perhaps 2200mAh but under the belly out of the way for the vision system...

It works - no problem.
At first i tried 1 Lipo at 1 side. Using a velcro tape and 3M adhesive velcros.
I disliked it, because of the weight distribution.
Then 2 Lipos left and right - so i had 2 1200 mAh attached.

Then i had 1 Lipo mounted underneath, away from the sensors. Thats better :) In addition i am using landing gear extenders to get the Lipo away from the ground.

My next step will be to 3D print a battery mount if i found the correct positioning.
