    I was wondering if anyone has pulled their camera and gimbal from either a P2V+ or P3 and seen how much battery and flight time it gains you?

    Lots of my flying is done in a local park and all LOS. I want to gain as much time as possible per battery so I get more time and my kids get more time to learn.

    I had some one ask me a similar question-is the battery usage different using the camera vs not using it. Not taking the gimbal and camera off, per se, but shooting video vs just flying around.

    I say you try it and report back! That would be good to know.
