    I'm looking into upgrading my RC, and am curious about how the various un-amped variants (Itelite, FPVLR, Terminator, etc) affect stock RC battery life, if at all.

    Also, what sort of battery life can one expect from the amplified versions of the afore-mentioned antennas?

    It doesn't affect rc battery life. I have the fpvlr on another bird and from what I remember, that battery to power both boosters will last about 1 hour I think. I remember my routine was that I recharged the battery after every third flight so I never ran into problems.
