Now, this is how I always envisioned the battery hack to look, however it is incredibly frustrating to not be able to read and understand the accompanying text, can someone please translate for those of us Chinese language challenged?

Chinese brothers suggested livehack how to make sure that the percentages and time on a double battery were shown correctly. You just need to solder to the current-measuring resistors are the same in the parallel (for example from above). The capacity will show the same, and the passing current is 2 times less, which we actually need

---- Information is relevant to for the drone Maviс 1-

Is it possible to use this information for the Inspire 1 battery livehack .

Was this information helpful?
I never saw wrong time prediction in DJIGO when using the AUX battery.
In my case DJIGO shows ~25 min when I plug the AUX batteries and the actual flight takes about 22 min to 8%. Also with TB48 only I see ~14 min predicted flight and the actual flight ends at 13min and 10% battery.
To me in both cases this is pretty acurate estimate.

this is already a good duration, 60% longer than mine ..

do you know how to buy anything.....none of the buttons work.
Tao Bao is an internal store only for the Chinese, buying there is carried out either through intermediaries or through other resources that are partners to taobao.
You can do it yourself, but you need to register - and there are problems and pitfalls ... but possible.
Try asking Google a question in search of how to buy on taobao, there will probably be a lot of tips and answers. In any case, there are many answers on Russian sites.

Further testing on the new DIRECT TO BATTERY MOD......has to be tested, all is going good....
BUT one of the 3s batteries was getting hot when Inspire was just sitting "on" idle, so i
think instead of 2 x 3s lipos i can only use 1 6s lipo, IMG_0281.JPG IMG_0282.JPG IMG_0283.JPG IMG_0284.JPG IMG_0285.JPG IMG_0286.JPG IMG_0287.JPG IMG_0288.JPG IMG_0289.JPG IMG_0290.JPG

things that happened

1. one lipo got hot, other stayed cool, (so i think the tb47 was trying to charge the lipo)
2. with the AUX's lipos connected the cell voltage dropped ???? (in the app)
3. with no AUX lipos connected the cell voltage was higher????(in the app)

so i need to do more testing.......dont want drone crashing

WARNING>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>WARNING>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>WARNING
i have tested the direct to cell MOD, and for some reason unknown, it messes with the smart board, and also seems to drain the main battery, so it tried to land prematurely , luckily i have a modded bird, i can stop emergency landing......but i landed because of low voltage....BUT i disconnected AUX batteries, and continued to hoover at a FAKE 3% (in APP), for a bit longer to drain main tb47, and it flew for 12 more minutes......
so with aux batteries in that type of mod will
prematurely land your drone within 5 minutes


so back to drawing board.....

So let me give you some simple insight.
It’s been quite some time since ive been on so take this with a grain of salt. Everyone is trying bolt on this, bolt on that.
The simple fact of the matter is, look at the FIRMWARE, and the INJECTED BATTERY PACKET. Those two items are all you need to futs with. Install PYTHON (it runs better on a macintosh), and you can decompile EVERYTHING, and recompile EVERYTHING. You can even BACKTRACE -R all the steps each and every process calls to, up and down the tree and ALTER THEM. We had 2-6,600’s on the i1’s (no pos deejayhigh battery) with complete custom firmware we wrote and at that point, the motors were cooking when a camera was attached. We moved on. This isn’t to discourage anyone from doing what they like but look at the load handling capabilities of the esc and motor, then work backwards of what the total AUW would be with your attached power sources and components will be.
Just two pennies, carry on : )
I’m old, don’t pay me any mind.

Can we dispense with the rediculously large font please?
It is against our posting standards/rules.
Thank You
