    Hi,

    I am looking for a second power solution for my Alta 6 and Red Epic set up for high temperatures and higher altitude work.

    Is it OK to use a lipo for this? And what is the lightest pack I can get that will power my Red securely for one flight? I was thinking to mount it to my carbon v-battery side mount from freefly.

    What temp and altitude are you working at? You should be able to power your RED and Movi off the same 4s battery for a single flight if you're looking to shave every possible gram off the setup.

    I have ordered cables that will work with my movi batteries now. I think I will just velcro a movi batt just for the Red at the side of the brain through the carbon v-lock smart adapter from freefly , and still use one movi battery for the rest. Then I guess I have about 25-30 minutes on one battery.
