Banggood has been a bit slow with the shipping, my X380 was shipped only 2 days ago, so as I choosed free shipping (less risks to pay custom fees), I probably won't get it before 2 weeks...

But on a french forum, three of us have bought it, one on an other shop (but who still has not yet shipped it, maybe it hard for them to find it...), and one bought it also on Banggood but with express shipping.

If they will get it before me, I will surely translate and repost in this topic what they thinked about it!

Hello there !

I'm one of the 3 french guys about to receive it (supposedly next tuesday)
For now we can enjoy the quite impressive toughness of that little boy :

XK X380 A RC quadcopter violent resistance testing (0 min 46 sec)


They didn't fly it afterwards though

I don't know exactly, there's the XK brand logo on it but it really looks like the V303 controller, they just moved the headless and RTH switches on the front side of the controller

Hello,PINgOa.
It is indeed greater flight time of 20 minutes?

I didn't use it for 20 minutes straight but for 5 minutes sessions. But yeah, to me the total flight time with that first battery was around 25 minutes, I'll give it a try tonight and try to set a chronometer.

Thanks,PINgOa.

I look forward to find the maximum flight time, and of course with gimbal and mounted camera.

I would like to know and dimensions of the battery.
Weight, length, width, height.

Unfortunately there's a lot of wind tonight where I live so the flight was not great, but I managed to achieve 20 minutes of flight before the lights started flashing red, which means there's not a lot of juice left in the battery.

I landed the X380 after 22 minutes and the lights were still flashing red, so I didn't reach the final stage which is red lights on continuously and which means you REALLY have to land

As for the battery itself, it seams to be the same as that one, only the connector is different, so the size and weight should be about the same :
