    So what is the point of this post? Mental masturbation? Until someone actually gets one and does real world testing, its all speculation isn't it...? DUH

    Mental you say. Isn't it always...?
    People need to have a safe place to fantasize about their next big drone conquest too, I suppose. ;-)

    I think you need to read that again... It doesn't say "upto 28 minutes"... It does say "more than 28 minutes" ;)

    No idea how you are doing this. I can't get close even in docile P-mode.

    How low are you taking your battery?

    Thanks

    This would be pretty funny if he has a dual-battery mod ;)

    DJI note: "28 minute flying time is based on being in a weightless environment like the international space station with a dual battery modification".

    When I get home, CA off, P-mode, 100' hover for the entire battery. I think some of these guys are full of crap. 22-24 minutes with 30% battery left? Not buying it.

    Maybe you should change the name of your P4 from "Nemesis" to "Abbreviated"!

    Another flight with the P4 after couple of more battery cycles. This time I pushed bit more and fly more aggressively. Reached 24mins (started 97% and landed 9%) so I think I am getting there slowly :)

    Long story short more battery cycles gives longer flight time regardless aggressive or calm fly.

    Was thinking "For a Few Watts More" with a theme song composed by Ennui Morricone. :cool:

    I just got 23 minutes racing around in Sport mode! I still think 28 minutes it achievable
