HobbyKing 650X6 Folding Hex Flight Time

TritonmkTritonmk Club Members Posts: 15
I have the Hobbyking 650X6 folding Hex frame with the following hardware:



6 x Turnigy 3536/8 1000Kv motors

6 x 40amp ESC

10 x 4.7 Slowfly props

2 x Turnigy 3S 40-50C 2200mah Li-Po's in parallel



I'm only getting 4-5 mins hovering time with this setup.



Can anyone recommend how i can increase the flight time.



I was hoping for much more than this..

    MUCH higher capacity batteries. Look at least to 10,000mAh MultiStar packs. Even higher could be possible.

    Thanks for the reply.



    So does that mean i need to go up to 4S to get 10,000mah +



    I dont see any packs with capacity near that at 3S.



    Do you think 2 x 5200mah 3S packs would be okay or too heavy??

    There are lots of brands for a 3S 10000mAh Lipo battery on the market. You can buy one with 25C e.g. for $53 with free shipping....

    One 3S 10000mAh battery will have an advantage both in price and in weight, but....

    if you ruin it, you'll have have higher costs to replace it.....jstremmler2016-08-16 17:12:50
