    So awhile back I put a dual battery setup with the E300 propulsion kit from Dji on my phantom with 2212/920KV motors and 9.4" props.
    My question is when I'm in the software on computer what do I change my gains and battery life levels too? For now I been to scared to adjust it it flys good now with good battery life, but I was wondering if anyone knew if there was any adjustments I can make to improve flight times and performance? I'll be axiously waiting for your comments thank you for all your help!

    Yea I hear ya I didn't start doing all this till about 6mo of owning it...and it was a slow prosses...I'm constantly changing it..its turned into a addiction..its always on here and ebay..my wife probably would kill me if she knew how much I spent on it..hey keeps me out of trouble.. I fine doing all the physical upgrades like doing soldering, painting, and electrical stuff but changing settings in naza software I'm clueless....it flies great now I love it I'd be lost with out flying least twice a week lol...but I was just thinking if there is any tuning I can do but it real makes me nervous messing with that unless I know 100% for sure it won't f it up...

    Adjusting gains can be a tedious chore to get it where you like it. There's no particular "across the board" hard fast setting. It comes with experimenting but here's the basics of the gain #s.

    First set of #'s Pitch, Roll, Yaw & Vertical are how the aircraft reacts towards conditions IE: wind, temp etc. The second set Pitch & Roll are how the aircraft reacts to stick inputs. Hope that helps...

    Re: Battery settings - you can go as low as 10.6 first warning & 10.2 second warning level as a rule on single battery but with the added weight w/2 batts you might consider keeping it closer to stock settings. If you really what some times, try a couple of good size 4S (4 cell) batts, just remember to reset battery settings (under battery calibration)

    Welcome to the addiction.
