    First flight:
    P2/Zen/iOSDmini/AVL58, Hero 3 Black filming at 720/60 and 1 photo every 3 seconds, 52º F outdoor temp
    16 min, 30 sec to 8% battery

    Draining the battery to 20% I average 15 - 15.5 minutes per charge on the above setup.

    I just launched for first time naked with no attachments. 48 degrees with a moderate wind of 18 mph. I am extremely impressed with flight time of 29 minutes!!!!!! Probably had a few more minutes left because the second warning had not started....first time flier I still can't believe how easy

    Naked, stock v.1.1.1 Phantom, stock self-tightening props tooling around (figure 8's, with a few higher speed maneuvers thrown in once in a while) GPS mode: 9 minutes 30 seconds with a stock 2200mAh Phantom battery to first level warning. I land ~ 10 minute mark.

    DJI Flamewheel 450 - Volcano/Proton 30A ESC's, Tiger motors, 10" carbon fiber props, Turnigy 5000mAh battery 14 minutes 30 seconds just tooling around with ~25% time spent hot-dogging in ATTI and/or manual mode. Land around 15 minute mark.

    I'm getting about 16 min with that setup (minus the iOSDMini & AVL58 which I have to reinstall) at 24 degrees F to 20% battery. So I expect to lose a couple of minutes in the cold - maybe 14-15 min and 16 min at 50+ degrees. Still vastly better than the 6-7 min I was getting out of the P1.

    Who says it's a P1 or P2 thread? The subject is "Real World Flight Times" not "Phantom 2 Real World Flight Times." Both versions can be flown stock or loaded up with various combinations of accessories. This thread should be informational for all Phantom owners.

    DJI AVL58
    Zenmuse H3-2D gimbal
    GoPro Hero3 Black

    I fly hard and fast for about 15-18 minutes, landing at ~25% battery, with very little hover time, so flight times could be longer.

    Actually, this thread is specifically for Phantom 2; That is why it is in the "DJI Phantom 2 (Non-Vision)" forum. Phantom 1 and P2V information should be listed elsewhere, not in this thread. That way P1, P2, and P2V owners don't have to sift through mixed information.

    I too assumed it was for P2's only, as the post is on the Phantom 2 (Non-Vision) board.

    I don't go through the board classification. Not even sure how to do that. I usually click on "View Active Topics" when I visit this forum to see what folks are most interested in talking about OR I click on "View Your Posts" to follow up on threads I've rung in on. Sorry if I ruffled any feathers.

    No apologies necessary. No ruffled feathers anywhere. I figured you must not have realized where the thread was so I was just letting anyone reading along know, to maybe help keep things a little more organized. Isn't it terrible how impossible it is to express and perceive emotion through text on the internet? ;)

    Now that we've figured out what we're supposed to be talking about, let's get this thread back on track!

    Not always a bad thing...

    My wife and I fond that most of our arguments dragged on because one or both of us were reading body language, facial expression instead of listening to the words...

    So I'd go outside and call her on the cell phone....no more body language and facial expression....and arguments tended to be over before they began...

    Your mileage may vary....
