Cheerson CX-20 Build

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been getting extremely into drones over the past few years.  I have become a pretty decent pilot and I feel that I am ready for an upgrade.  I bought an Open-Source Cheerson CX-20 to "build" to understand more about how UAVs work (not just how to fly them).  I've went ahead and done some normal upgrades like a gimbal, landing gear, and props but now I need some help.  I would like to get a bigger battery to be able to support the added weight but I have no idea what to get?  I am also looking to put telemetry into the drone and not quite sure what all I need.  

I would really appreciate any advice or input! 

Thank you,

I am not that familiar with the CX-20 but have built several of my own drones using open source software. Do you know if the CX-20 is running a version of ArduCopter ?. What ground control station software are you using ?. Is it Mission Planner ?
