What flight time are you getting? I'm only using the T580P+ frame but I've seen people mention they get 12-15 minute flight times? I wouldent call that long, my MK L4-ME gets me 25-30 minutes flight time. I would consider that to be above the average 12-15 minutes most multicopters get.

Contrast is the contrast in the same standard size, the same battery capacity.

Well the L4-ME frame is a little smaller than the lotrusRC T580P+. It uses 10" props and works on 4s on 2200mah. The L4-ME measures 48cm across (excluding props).

Very good configuration.
This size, and the T380 LOTUSRC relative ratio.
T380 can fly up to 28 minutes.
Look at the T380 specifications:

A 4s 10000mAH lipo pack is a big lipo pack. That must weight over 700g too much just to achieve 20minutes max in my opinion. Flight characterisitics is probably sluggish too.

A 5s 10000mah would weigh over 1kg alone, could a T580P+ even lift that without trouble?

Ordinary T580P + limited 3S voltage.LotusRC will soon be out of a module, so that everyone can use 4S or 5S.

Well I am using 4500 mAh Nano-tech Turnigys and can get 24 mins out of a battey, then the beeper indicates my battery is running low on my Lotus. So guess a 5000 mAh will give almost 30 mins.

I cannot seem to find any 4500mAh batteries with deans connectors ... where did you source yours?

Ether buy from here if you can, as you get the option of what plug, pick deans, or buy a battery at a model shop, or online and find a good hobby shop to change it to a deans plug.
