    I have p3-Question for all- why don't they make a battery that last longer than 23 minutes? Was this done on purpose? Don't understand why there isn't a high capacity battery- 25 minutes goes quick

    More capacity = more weight ,cost, and size.

    When designing aircraft there are many give-and-takes to achieve the required flight performance.

    If you research batteries you'll find LiPos have just about the best power to weight to cost ratios available off-the-shelf today.

    Yup that's basically a perfect answer. Plus $150 is steep enough for a spare
