    I've just taken ownership of an immaculate FC40 with Skytrex Core and other bits and bobs. I decided to be prudent and got myself a timer too: What is the realistic performance (time) of a stock DJI battery pack? I'm trying to avoid holding down the skids and going full throttle until it stops if i can help it! TVM

    About 9-11 minutes, depending on how you push it, of course.

    I'm getting between 9 and 13 mins but that's without hammering it

    If you want more flight time you can always mod the front door to accommodate a bigger battery and fly with 4000 mah multistar batteries.
