    I would have thought 18mins or more for a P2V+ but depends on the battery/aircraft weight/wind etc too, try plugging your Phantom into the DJI Assistant and have a look what it says about the battery.

    Is it brand new? In the djigo app you can see details on the battery. Id take a screenshot of that after a full charge. They definitely drop over time/use. I got one off ebay that was noticeably about 5min less of fly time than my brand new one.... But I paid 1/2 price so no complaints

    Also remember any additional weight has direct impact on flight time
