    So I have noticed when recording in 2.7k and flying at high altitude +400ft. I typically reach the critical 10% battery level in about 21minutes. I'm running a P3S with DJI Carbon fiber reinforced props and a few other irrelevant mods and I am curious what sort of battery life others are achieving. Please post results and advice if any. Any input is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    At 400', wind conditions are likely to be different than on the ground. That may contribute to less battery life at that height if you are observing less.

    I don't recall for sure what I'd "normally" get on my P3S, but I want to say around 22-24 mins. There are lots of variables with battery time.
