Question
Thunder Tiger Neptune Rum Time Question...

Hi everyone.

Just wondering what kind of run time I should expect out of a stock Neptune??

I've had one in and out of my cart at Tower for a few weeks now, but haven't yet taken the dive. (I know, har har.)

I've been looking for information about the battery, but haven't been able to pinpoint anything. All of my searches take me to threads on sites that have hundreds of posts, and when skimming through them I haven't found a lot of talk about run time, other than upgrading to a higher capacity battery gives you more of it, which is pretty obvious.

Thanks.
Jeff

It comes with a 2.2 Ah 12 volt SLA (Sealed Lead Acid) battery and a sub standard charger, use a decent 2 or 3 stage charger and depending on the pressure of the thumb on the go stick then more than 1/2 hour is no problem. some users have reported very short runtimes using the stock charger, (which obviously is not charging properly).

30 - 40 minutes on the stock setup is about right.

Mine has been changed to a 5k 3s lipo, with a more aggressive prop, runs for well over an hour with ease.
