    I know that it far outlasts the bird, but how much time are you getting on the RC if it is fully charged? Just wondering if I bought 10 batteries for the PSA if the remote would last that long. Thanks

    Mine is on 80% after four 20+ minute flights so absolutely yes.

    Edit: it is very possible that you will discharge your phone/tablet battery before using all 10 Phantom batteries

    I didn't measure the time but I guess I easily get 20+ minutes per fully charged battery. I use 3 batteries and get enough FUN time.

    Never faced RC low battery during my flights but few times iPad was low on power, I switched in my iPhone to continue flying. I keep power backup for iPhone too but never used it on site.

    My rc is lasting about 1hr 30min before hitting 50% then it gets recharged
