    I have a Phantom 2 with the new 3 axis gimbal, AVL58, GoPro 3 Black and the mini iOS. Currently I'm getting 15 minutes of flying time from start up to 20%. I'm wondering what kind of time I'm going to use by adding the GS?

    Thanks

    The drain on the battery is minimal (little or no impact on flight time) and the weight it adds (~30g) won't even eat a full minute of it.

    With the DJI FPV hub, Hysight FPV transmitter, iOSD Mini, GoPro 3+ Black, H3 gimbal, and the 2.4 Ground Station unit, my P2 weighs in at 1458. Over the limit per the manual. :cry:
