This video shows the battery life which you can expect with the stock battery of the HobbyKing Spec FPV250. I'm just cruising around, with one high altitude maneuver. The flight time using the 1000mAh Turnigy 11.1V (3s LiPoly) stock battery is a bit more than 6 minutes including FPV equipment (transmitter, antenna) and a Mobius on the quad.

That is not too bad, although upgrading it to 1400 mAh lipos with a higher C rate is definitely worth it. In the weather which I flew it in, the stock battery constantly drops to below 3.3 volt / cell when going over half throttle, which makes the voltage alarm go off. This also makes it hard to realize when the battery is really empty, which caused the emergency landing in the end.

I'm now using the stock battery for my DIY glasses and am very happy with the upgraded Turnigy nano-tech 1400mah 3S 40~80C lipos, which provide considerably longer flight times and no more early voltage drops.

Been testing out my new Yuneec Q500 APV platform, I installed a 5.8 ghz video tx and FPV camera on it.



watch at 1080p60 for best video and smoothest pans.
