Yeah the lighter the setup the motor time you can get. Its all a trade off with size vs weight. I had a 13 inch mtm and could get 7 mins on 2200mah with fpv setup on 8 inch props and 1200kv motors but it was very fragile. But then built a bigger heavier quad that was a tank and got crap for flight time. Now that i have a 30 inch mtm that is 1025g ish before flight pack with 11 4.7 apc props and DT700s i can get 7:30 to 8min with a 2200mah and 11min on 4000mah and it handles the same with either pack.

Then my radio went down and in for service so now I have to wait to mess around more.
