Hi guys. Brand new P3S owner here. First time poster. I've been lurking on here for about 2 weeks, reading many many threads, so most of my questions have been answered. I only have two 5 minutes flights on my bird so far (it's extremely cold outside this week) and so far all I can say is WOW WOW WOW, this thing is awesome. My previous bird is a tricked out Syma X5SC, so the DJI is a quantum leap for me.

Mods so far are Samsung 7" Tablet on a DJI Inspire bracket kit. ARGtek antenna kit, 100w DJI charger, CF gimbal guard and an aftermarket camera lens cover/camera holder.

Anyways on to what I was thinking. I think I read somewhere that the internal battery in the transmitter was only 2400mah. While I had the Tx apart doing the antenna mod.... it looked like it would be super easy to swap that out with a higher capacity battery. Has anyone ever tried this? I searched on here and didn't really find anything.

For example... this one is a 3500mah....

Once my battery needs replacement, my plan is mounting an 18650 battery holder and then I can swap batteries on the fly. Never again would I have to wait on charging the controller.

Ohh... 20 flights? Nice. I didn't know that. That's not too bad really. OK. Perhaps that's why nobody really bothers with this. I guess I should get some more flight time on it before I go and modify things that don't need modifying. LOL. Thank you.

Like Mark said, no real need to upgrade it. If it goes bad one day, than you could.
