Hi Rennuh! Thanks for the question, I haven't actually used this FPV setup in flight yet, but other people on HobbyKing have said that they get about 1 hour from a 500mAh 3S, so with the slightly smaller 460mAh's I'd expect about 50-55 mins operating time...

I think using the flight battery is a bad idea, it will probably reduce your flight time drastically, so I'd go with the two nanotechs, one for the transmitter and one for the receiver... Plus the nanotechs are very light, so adding one onto the plane won't cause any major shifts in the CG...

Any other questions just ask, I hope I've been helpful!

Happy flying,
