    Should I rest the P2 between flights and if so how long?

    I always give my P2 5-7 minutes of downtime between flights, giving warm components a chance to cool. I've done this since starting with multi-rotors so it's more habit with me.

    No fixed time.
    It will need more time to cool down in summer than in winter.
    So when it cool down, when you can have another fly.

    Unless I am changing locations, I'll send it right back up as soon as the next battery is in. Turn and burn! Curious if there is a target duty cycle on the motors.

    Same here. Haven't had any issues however, when the temps warm up this summer, I will probably give it a rest between battery changes.

    I just let it get cooler after 12 or more minutes longer flights heavy loaded. Wait 2 minutes :mrgreen: more than 300 flights without issues around that.
