ResultsThe Iris flew for just over 16 minutes before getting down to 10.53 volts. I landed and disarmed before the battery alarm went off. Current draw was under 14 amps average for the entire flight. I slowly flew it around a 15 meter radius at an altitude of 1-2 meters.
The Thunder Power battery weighs in at 320 grams whereas the stock battery (3500mAh) weights 259 grams. So for the additional 61 grams you get 900mAh. The battery fits perfect inside the Iris shell, but if I had to do it over again, I would have made the power connections shorter before soldering the XT60 connector. The SkyRC charger that 3DR supplied works fine for the Thunder Power battery, but I bought a standalone balancer just for peace of mind.
Overall I'm pretty happy with the battery, but I'd love to see a full writeup on the Zippy 5000mAh.
