    Somebody I know said they got hold of a battery for their DJI 4 that is used by the power companies. It can have a life of up to 2 hours. Has anyone else heard of this?

    I highly doubt any battery able to fit in the p4 is capable of providing 2 hours of flight.

    Seems to be causing the craft to veer off course! :eek:
    I'd be careful with that one! ;)

    I think it stopped and had to pull over. I bet that's not an original DJI battery and they just did a firmware update...
    Wait!
    Is that DB driving it?

    There are hydrogen cell prototype/experimental packs that can achieve those sorts of runtimes but these aren't commercially available. There is a video on YouTube of one such pack hovering a multi-rotor for 2 or 4 hours straight.

    No, I haven't heard about this but since you've apparently heard of it from somebody you know, why don't you get all the info (and pics) from them and post it here so we'll all be informed about it? BTW, his name's not P.T. Barnum, is it?

    Due respect, it's somebody you know, right? Go watch it fly for 2 hours. That will give you time to get all the details. It would be nice of you to come back here and tell us what you learned.

    Thanks.

    I predict with the development of graphene batteries we will be flying one hour within the next 2 years.
