"What you are seeing is very normal and depends on the internal battery resistance. I also second the the quality of Hyperion cells. I use 4 year old 3300 mAh Hyperions and they are really good batteries. I use them in a number of sizes and everytime…"

"What mode does this happen in? I have seen similar resistance to flying when I use Loiter and force it to change locations. In those cases I find it much more natural to switch to alt-hold, fly, then re-engage Loiter.
