Finally a very good day to fly here.
So I had the opportunity to compare my new TB48's with the TB47.And I can say I'm very happy to see that the difference is even better than I thought.
I did have 16 min. ( 16.21)with TB47 and just over 21(21.13) min with the TB48.All batteries did have 10% left.
The best thing either is that I can fly for much more than 1 hr now with the 4 batteries.

Yes conditions were almost perfect.Just a slight breeze and 5"Celsius(41"Fahrenheit).
Have been waiting for over 2 weeks to get these conditions.(Strong winds and rain for more then 2 weeks)

10% is pretty low, I would raise it to 20%. This will give you the best life out of the lipo.
Was trying to get a fair comparisson and since the TB 47 was at 10%,I did the same with the TB 48.
Normally it's about 18% when landing.
That beeping sound is pretty clear:D

Are there any concerns about the duty cycle of the motors? Specifically, I am wondering if it is bad news to have 6 batteries, using & charging in a cycle, with the goal of keep the bird in the air semi-continuously for a day shoot. Not sure if an 8 hour flight day, with only 3 min. breaks every 18 min will be bad for the Inspire.

No reason it wouldn't be happy with it. They run cold and reach "operating temperature" in a minute or 2, so they can hold 20 minutes they can hold 200.

Since there are no moving parts on the motors I do not see there would be any problem.
The only thing that is likely to have issues would be the bearings. (If they overheated)
I regularly fly for long periods in 18 minute intervals with circa 3 minutes down time for battery swap and pre flight checklist. This is on a larger Hex running Tiger motors. As a mater of routine I swap my bearings out every 80 hours of flight time.
I have had no issues whatsoever and I would expect the Inspire to be the same.

The inspire at CES was flown for 9-10 hours straight for almost a week. It only stopped for battery and pilot replacement.

Careful decharging your battery below 20%, I heard that is one way for them to catch fire.

One I have to replace my battery and landed,I do a quick check and put the new battery in the Inspire.So all is taken something around 5 minutes before flying again.In this time everything is allready normal.
Have been flying my Phantom 2 like this with 8 batteries in a row and had never any problem.So the Inspire is much better build this would be no problem.You can fly it for hrs.
