    What flying times are you guys getting?
    I'd like to get 20 to 25 minutes, I don't have to carry a heavy camera.

    What configuration do you recommend for these flying times?

    Maybe if you had a Cinestar 6 with tons of batteries, no camera gimbal and large props, you might get that. But why? If all you want is long flight times, you're maybe better off with a smaller copter.

    Nobody I've seen here has gotten much more than about 15 minutes with a Cinestar. That's the longest I've gotten with my CS8 with a 2-axis gimbal and Sony CX760V using dual 8000mah batteries.

    (oh, and you should change your name to be your real name...)

    I have about 15 min on a 6s 6000 mha. And my weight is 5,2 kg. And about 22-23 min on 2 x 6000mha image.jpg
