    Im wondering what effect the Go-pro and Iosd Mini and the TX and the Gimbal have on flight times any thoughts ?

    I guess what I'm looking for is the most efficient balance between batteries and weight I'm looking to do the following and was wondering if any one else has done the same,

    Im looking at Cutting the power link from the Gimbal to the Go-pro to stop it from charging the Go-pro then linking the Tx up to a small light weight battery, has any one else tried this ??

    Yep been covered a few times . The GP dose not use much you MIGHT gain 20-30 sec. Adding more weight = less flight time .
    Without all the goodies 19-22 min. With all the goodies 14-18 min. This is all on weather conditions & how heavy you are on the sticks .
