    Suggested many times, but unfortunately "battery weight" is not our friend. Vision's motors, props, and dead weight have tradeoff's that have been optimized for maximum flight time. Adding more dead weight without the torque & energy to lift it will presumably leave us with a heavy sloppy bird and not too many more minutes of flight time.

    Might make an interesting science experiment 'tho... Strap another 11.1v underneath and alligator clip it to the battery terminals and see if I'll lift it, then check out how it handles, and for how long. I'd be worried about overloading the motors & their ESC's but who knows?
