horrible flight time

Post by mascari569 » 10 Jan 2018, 22:18

I just got a bebop 1 for christmas. Its a great drone but the light time is horrible. It came with 2 batteries and i purchased a 1600mah battery. All 3 batteries average about 5 minutes flight time give or take 30 seconds. Thats horrible I thought I would get 10 minutes or so.
Any suggestions for increasing flight time?

Is the 1600mah battery 3rd party?

Hello and welcome to the board,

sound like either the charger or the batteries are broken / old. Was it a new or second hand bebop?
