    Doing long distance runs with p2's i usually run back/forth in atti so i can go faster and in theory get more distance per battery. I've notice some runs going full speed in atti can suck down battery pretty fast so i'm asking and will test myself, does it use same amount(therefore getting the same distance)
    Just cruising the run in gps mode. I did p2v+
    In atti out to 12000' ending in 12 percent bat
    Then later did 10000' in gps there and rth all the way back ending in 20 percent bat. Seems the same. How u running??
