    I've added quite a bit of accessories to my Phantom and as a result, the battery life is now around 6-7 minutes. I'd like to add a larger external battery, but I am not sure how/where to mount. Does anyone have some examples?

    I have just litterally finished testing my Shapeways dual battery cage(search d3wey on Shapeways). I used a phantom stock batt in the shell and an overlander 2200 in the battery cage. I got a full FPV flight for 12 mins before any sign of a red light and landed at 14 mins with the first signs of double flash red. I will post a full report later as the remaining voltages are interesting.
    I know this sounds like a total sales pitch but it is exactly what you are looking for and now i've tested it fully i am more confident to promote it as a good solution.
