    If you have multiple batteries, how long do you wait between flights? Do you give your quad a rest? Or do you change the battery and go up again right away? Should the quad have a break between flights?

    You can fly batteries back-to-back. You'll need a rest before your quad does :)

    I do the same, land, switch off, change batteries, put in a new one, wait for connection to be re-established and take off again. Never had a problem so far.

    Thanks. Still new to this and didn't want to push something. Never saw anything mentioned, but figured it was worth asking

    I do the same thing. Flew four batteries in a row a couple of times. No issues at all.
