    Hi,
    Maidened my new Phantom today finally. Had 3 flights. One line of sight flight and 2 with the Fatshark Predators. Had an absolute blast with the FPV flights. Anyhow, what sort of flight time should I be getting with the gopro on board and the Fatshark gear. I was getting around 6-7 minutes and had 25% left on the pack. I was expecting to be in the 9-10 minute range.
    I will say however that at some parts in the flight, probably 35% of the flight I was giving it some beans and it was motoring along. Also I am on the new 4.02 firmware. I have read of people experiencing shorter flight times on the new firmware. I have not flown 4.00 as I went straight to 4.02 out of the box. Thanks for any help.
    Cheers, Rich
