New Reptile 500 build, AUW = 1,421g (3.13lb) with a Turnigy 3600mAh 3S 30C Lipo, hovering about 60'up in the "GPS hold" spinning 1045 props at a bit less then 50% throttle, brought it down to land 11.25 minutes, battery tested at 3.75 volts. I am very Happy with this test and the time that was shown, will now be ordering a 5000mAh 4s lipo then try some different size props, in hopes of increasing this time.

Re: Battery/Flight time Testing
Bigger batteries mean more weight. Will be interesting to see what you get with the 5000's
