How much flight time are you getting?

What happens when the lipo starts getting low? Does it give you much time to land?


Cheers,

Hey Mike,
I have not timed it ,but it does have a low battery alarm ,but before that goes off i can tell because it will start not turning to the right as good with a full battery.so it gives u plenty of time to land.

I should have my 8x4 props by Wednesday i hope and we will see how it goes.
So G-Unit what props did you end up using. I have a kit coming and need to buy some props to. From what I have read the front and back props are the same but different from the left and right props which are the same.

Yah from what I have read, just gps ready or capable. I am getting back into the quad scene after a 6 month break. I have time again so, I dusted off my spectrolutions bl board and am looking into other options as well. Right now im just trying to catch up on everything, the x650 is sounding good so far.

Where do you think the extra $200 is going? bigger motors? better board with more sensors? gps? or just sleek design?
