Today we’re going to find out how long it takes to charge the Tattu 4s 1800mah 75c and what the real world flight time is, in comparison to 1300 mAh batteries which are more common for racing drones.
When it comes to racing quadcopters, flight time is not as important as it is in the case of cruising drones. More important is the take-off weight and you need to keep it as low…Continue
