    Hello I want to share with all of you some changes I did to my Phantom V1.1.1
    This is before:
    - Stock Battery from DJI
    - Props Guards
    - New TS-351 5.8G 200mw AV Video fpv TX Transmitter
    - T type Carbon Fiber Landing Gear
    - Tarot Gimbal

    Ok with all this I was getting 4.5 minutes of flying time.

    Now,
    I took the advice of taking the props out and then I bought this new Battery:
    PULSE LIPO 2200mAh 11.1V 25C for DJI Phantom
    Price: $22.99
    Voltage: 11.1V
    Cell Count: 3S
    Capacity: 2200mAh
    Discharge Rate: 25C
    Charge Rate: 5C
    Dimensions: 106mm x 33mm x 25.5mm
    Weight: 200g


    Now I got 6.2 minutes of Flight time and now Im :shock:

    Try a Mad-dog 2700 battery for better performance & duration. It's a direct replacement for your 2200's & you'll get better flight times.

    mad-dogs are a bit heavier then stock batteries.
    However, with a similar setup -

    no prop guards
    stock props
    mad-dog battery
    walkera gimbal +gopro 3+
    FC40 cam velcroed to the battery door (FPV)

    I get 7:30 before the LED flashes red.

    That *may* get increased a tad when I get the vision props
