    Hello everyone,
    Just sizing up my fpv spec ( same as use on my rc car) and wondered what you all thought about it regards weight and how much time I should get off one battery.? (Stock battery).
    600mw irc tx
    Mobius camera
    Spironet antenna
    Anti-jello mount
    Small 3s lipo for tx.
    The weight for this with the phantom + battery will be close to 900g

    What model of Phantom?

    Odds are that you would do better to ditch the separate battery and power the video Tx off of the Phantom's power supply...the drain of the transmitter operating won't eat as much flight time as the weight of the extra battery will.

    Sorry,meant to add that.
    It is the phantom 1.1.1.
    Yes,could use the auxiliary power cable I guess. Just thought it might be easier to disconnect with separate battery.
