    Anyone have any tips on extending the battery time in flight? I need to justify this P4 purchase!!

    Car are optimized at highway speeds for MPG. if you go top speed, however, you deplete the battery/gas at an exponential rate. Has anyone found that sweet spot to get the biggest bag out of the battery?

    I fly with sensors off, I am sure that has a (very) minor impact.

    I would like to do solid flights at 25 - 45mph (in 5 mph increments) to see the flight differences. Keeping wind conditions constant. I doubt I have the patients to do this :/

    I think it's possibly too early to ask this question.. People have only just got their P4's. To find out optimal settings is going to take time and will vary depending on peoples environmental conditions.

    I think it would be a good idea if people could post the settings and environmental conditions here so we can get a good overview of what these optimal settings could be.

    I'm still flying with 'everything on' and I'm getting 20 minutes per flight with the battery level going down to 15-20%
