    Are you referring to aux lead? Yes, many of us do. Alot of folks will solder extra leads to main battery point at board also.

    If curious, I ran a test to see how much juice my 250mw and Tarot pull from the stock battery.
    in 2 minutes they drained about 70mah from the battery. (so figure in a 6 minute flight it's using about 210mah)
