Hi all 

I purchased a Arducopter and im lookign to get the best flight times I can. I have seen somewhere a guy using two 5000mah 3s lipos is it worth going that far? Would two 8000mah 3s lipos be far FAR too much?

Hello Felix,


You will gain a longer flight times from a 4s battery if the ESC / motors will work with the extra few volts, please check before using!

The interesting point about adding more and more batteries is the additional weight, so one battery, say a 4s 6000 mah would give you a 8-10 min's of flight time, add the same battery again so you have two now which is double the power however double the weight!


As the power to weight ratio has increased you will not get a 20 min' flight time, it would be closer to say 12-15 min's. These figures are for illustration purposes only and the real flight times will change in the real world, the optimum set up is the most powerful battery set-up for the least amount of weight!


I hope this help you :)
