    Diy battery mod with 1.3 turnigys give me 19 min on the app but i'm thinking its so heavy with (2) lipos , flytrex, & antennas that the flight time is not a big improvement!
    I gotta go back to the drawing board and lighten this bird up! 2.65kg now.
    What are you currently, or for you guys that have moved on to p3, have you used for the lipo's ?? Amps & weight vs flight time?

    Stock flight with standard battery I get 18 minutes and still have a reserve. Older the battery I still get 16 minutes stick. No worth the hassle for a couple of minutes for me.

    I got 5 batteries that have been thru flights that drain them to 5% or less every flight so they all give bout 12 mins. So i need the turnigys to ring out the 3-4 mile range, i just got to test different ones to find the right balance!
    This is what my post is seeking help with, other pilots who DO use bat mod and help with their
    Setup/successes
