    Today, after i've been flying for a week with my phantom, i did a battery test.
    With the standard battery (including standard camera) i got 12 minutes.
    With the extra battery(2600mha) i got 14 minutes. That's not worth the trouble it is to get it into the phantom and make it fit.
    So i'm ordered a bunch of 2200's extra.

    But a question, i've seen the stories about the 4000's ones at hobbyking, seems that they should fit better than my 2600 one.
    IS this phantom made / capable for longer flights than it's meant to?
    I mean, standard time is 10 minutes for this one, if you extend it to lets say 20, with the standard factory things left in, would that be ok for the motors and other components?
    I know some phantoms fly for 20/25 minutes but do they have the same motor setup or completely different?
    just wondering. I don't mind taking a break every 10 / 12 minutes.

    have a good day ya'll
