1 hours 43 minutes Flight with 2S NCR18650B Batteries

Hi Everyone

Last weekend I've tested Panasonic NCR18650B batteries on my maiden PolyClub EPP airplane. 
I was expecting ~40 minutes flight but I landed after 103 minutes 24 seconds! (1h43m24s)

This batteries are definitely working!
Only disadvantage of the batteries are low discharge rate. It is max. 2C.
So, discharge current should be less than 7A for 3400mA NCR18650B

Dear Melih. Nice news, you experience a really valuable.

2S - 7A

2S2P - 14A

2S3P - 21A


But I need a minumum 3S and 30A on take off...

2C = 60min / 2 = 30 minutes

If you want to fly more than 30min, they are also valuable for you ;)

Simple is best, love it. The multirotor crowd would be wetting their pants at that sort of endurance at such a low cost.
