Battery/Flight time Testing

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.

Bigger batteries mean more weight. Will be interesting to see what you get with the 5000's

Re: Battery/Flight time Testing

You actually want smaller props with higher voltage batteries to keep the power level the same.
