Recieved battery mod from Erik, will be doing trials to see how it does flight time wise with both X5 and X3 as well as X3 zoom model for anyone curious. :)

yes i am. do a boring video, stay close, also tell us outside temp....i get 29 minutes from full charge, but warm temps and x3, i dont have x5
Will do, I basically just plan to stay within couple hundred feet of me taking some arial shots of my property. You have no idea how currious I am wanting to know how to mod the battery head so I can have multiple lol. But Erik will continue to get my recommendation, quality is pretty darn good. My 2 minor complaints are the 3D printing quality could be a bit better and done in black versus grey and fix the typos in his instructions and Or offer them via online if there isn't any such. Other then that for the money I feel it saved my inspire 1, I have 2 atm and about to list my other one on eBay. So I have 3 low cycle Tb48's im keeping and parting with the low cycle 47's with sale of drone. I will def keep everyone posted, I had planned on a flight this morning... EXCEPT it is snowing/ raining and cloudy so not even worth trying to fly. Well being I live in Alaska... Warm temps are a few months off :(

Currently all of mine hold charge and work great for now, only bad batteries is from my PH3P I have torn apart on the desk LOL. Hoping shortly to get some vids and better numbers with the new battery. For reference, I get 15-16min average with TB48 (12 cycles) and 1.5min with TB47 (21 cycles) with X5 and at 31*F just messing around. In comparison to my other inspire which has the older props, there is a BIG difference as far as thrust and maneuverability... I got frisky and almost smacked my new one into side of shop, it's a bit more touchy..

Well decided to take the bird up since sun was setting, I messed up the auto-focus on my X5 so quality isn't the best but temperature out is 29*F no wind. I landed with 34% battery left and was in air for 19min and it stated I had another 6min of flight left. Mind you as you will see in the video, I didn't just hover I went around my house and upwards of 400ft and full throttle ahead so it's as real of a test I could provide. I just wish I wouldn't have used my ND10 filter and got the smudge off of it prior to taking off had I noticed. Oh well it landed safely and I am rather happy. 20-25min flight time IMO is perfect at temps below freezing! I think my next feat will be to 3D print new nose and have LED light attached.
