    Flying times?

    What kind of run time can we expect per Lipo?

    Was also wondering if there's a low voltage detection or is that what the remote displays?

    Depending on how you fly it, I think 8 minutes max.
    When the Lipo gets low on voltage, the LEDs on the quad start to blink.

    With very moderate flying I'm getting 8-10 minutes.

    How long does it take for the two batteries to charge?


    And has anyone looked into if the DR-1 battery would fit? or is that going to be to much extra weight, to where you woulnd't see a improvement on run time?

    Since the DR-1 Lipo is almost twice the capacity, you can expect it is also almost twice the size. And, more important, almost twice the weight.
