    Higher power output needs higher power input, so...

    Remote Battery Mod

    It's been up for 30 minutes or so, still full 4 green leds.

    This is also to show the amount of space avaialble in this huge remote ;)

    IMPORTANT. Do not mix the batteries. Make sure they come from same production.
    I used all four from brand new power bank I bought online - They were all matched at the factory to have as close as possible characteristics.

    So you replaced the 2S LiPo with NiMh?

    Not exactly.
    I replaced 1 Li-Ion with 4 Li-Ions

    Other than reducing charging frequency, what is the point?

    OK,
    Chemically there may not be much difference, however the DJI Specs list the Tx battery as a '2600 mAh LiPo'.

    Primarily so others can criticize.
    It has advantages too. It makes entire remote heavier, Just right for those who need to work out their biceps.
    Also for self defense if necessary.
