    What is the average flight time for a stock dji phantom with a gopro hero3+ Black edition camera attatched to it?

    Anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes depending on how aggressively you fly.

    I got a GPH3B with the housing around 8 to 10min . And with the 3+ housing around 9 to 11 min.
    Like stated above if I'm going full throttle then the numbers drop dramatically . I should say I'm using the vision props I don't know how much that changes times because I never timed it with the stock 8" props .

    Just got my phantom, and Hero naked with housing =~ 8 min
    Hero died, got hero3W, with housing, getting 7-8 min. Getting better at flying = more aggressive! flying higher, etc.
    p.s. Xtended warranty finally paid off on something.

    I've got my Phantom v1.1.1 loaded to the max with an H3-2D gimbal and GoPro Black. Add to that the GCU and the PMU as well as the addition of the iOSD mini, fatshark transmitter AND a Garmin GTU 10 tracker and I'm still getting about 6.5 minutes of non-agressive flying. Each flight draws about 1680-1700 mAh.
