What kind of current..

Does the typicall parkzone use?

For example an 8.5mm coreless brushed with 4 channels and three of their servos?

Im just wondering because I am hard pressed to get more than 3 minutes out of a 150mah battery.

I guess I should add but should be self evident that they use 1S batterys.

3 mins is terrible. is the battery old? you should get a bit more than that at worst.

try HobbyKing Nano. 130's are the same weight, 160s are a bit more. rated at 25C and worth it. hyperions 160 would be better still, but try the nano's night and day better than stock.

the stock 8.5mm on a stockish prop draws in the 1.2 to 1.5 amp area. dont know more than that

3 mins could be, your gear box is rough and sapping power, the battery is almost dead (either from use, incorrect storage or over discharge), it's really cold, the battery may not be fully charged(the light has to blink once every ten seconds, some fly the battery after the charger starts flashing, which is really just a bit more than half charge), or your at full throttle all the time( if it's old, it could be combo of worn motor and worn battery)
