350 qX3 fpv testing

I have have been messing around with my QX3, trying different FPV setups. so i will run through what i have tried and PLEASE give me your input on what you have tried or what you use and why!!

- 350 QX3
-3000 mah batt. (stock)
- V9 micro FPV cam from hobby wireless
- 1.3 Vtx 800 mw with blue beam antenna ( clover)
- an additional 1000 mah batt for FPV

*** this gives me around 8 min flight time with room to wiggle

I have also tried this-

- - 350 QX3
-3000 mah batt. (stock)
- 1.3 Vtx 800 mw with blue beam antenna ( clover)
- GoPro 3
- using flight battery for FPV

*** this gave me around 10 min and room to wiggle.

I have a 5.8 200mw system on order... im hoping for better flight times. PLEASE feel free to comment!

On 350qx2 (the same hardware as 350qx3 I think) I have flown so much I have worn out my main battery but $70 is too much to pay for an e-flite stock replacement. I couldn't find anything at all from Hobby King that fits the bill and ended up with Glacier pack 2600mah and Lectron Pro 3000mah. Lectron Pro gets me the same flight times as Eflite but comes down hotter. Glacier pack is getting shorter flight times but has more puch to it and doesn't come down as hot.

When I started flying I was getting 15 minute flight times but now I generally fly has hard and fast as the airframe will allow and I generally run out around the 8 minute mark.

I started with a heavier camera on the 350qx but was experiencing a problem where the tail would slip out on me during hard cornering while yawing (blowout I heard someone call it). I have experienced better performance with the much lighter HD keycam although I still experience blowout if I corner hard enough.
