    I love this board, but the search function seems to be lacking...

    I've searched on this topic and I get either dreadfully few hits or none at all depending on which words I use. Please forgive me if this has been covered before, but how long does your battery last while recording video?

    I just tested one of mine, fully charged. I waited long enough for a GPS lock and I took off to about 4 feet in height. I pressed record. At the point where the RTH would have engaged, I went to ATTI mode and flew until she just wouldn't fly anymore. It's interesting to note that when the battery indicator went into the red, I needed to hold upward pressure from neutral to keep it in the air. Total video time was 19 minutes and some odd seconds. I suppose it may be possible to just "fly" without recording for the advertised 25 minutes but the practical flight time (recording) seems to be just a tad over 15 minutes. This is what my experience has been. Has your's been any different?
