Modified Phantom 1 Long Flight Times (7 min 56 sec)

I wanted to touch base on a few things with this video. First is the iPower motors from I believe after testing 4 different systems with these on that it is one of the best motors available. Don't let the price fool you, for under $60 you can get a full set that will fit the Phantom 1 or 2 Smoothness, Power, and how cool they run are just a few of the great aspects you will find. I also have similar motors from iFlight on my 250, and 450 all showing the same positive results. iFlight-rc now has an online store called there you can find not only the motors but many more high quality products. The support has been great and I highly recommend you check them out.

I have had this Phantom 1 sitting around for awhile and thought it would be fun to get it back into service. As you can see I removed the backside so a larger battery could be used. By doing this I took my flight times to 26 minutes stripped down with no equipment, and 16 minutes with everything which included a 3Drobotics Iris 5100 battery, 250mw FPV transmitter, Tarot-T2 gimbal, Gopro Hero 3+ Black camera, Trackimo GPS tracker, 2 24led lights, and a voltage buzzer. The total weight was 3 pounds. I was also using 9" phantom 2 blades.

I will be doing another video shortly showing 2 GPS trackers that I feel are the best for locating a lost Aircraft. I have had a long time to try many and hopefully now have some updates that will help everyone. I should have that up later this week.
