What are the best settings for extended battery time in flight? Turning off vision sensors? Sports mode? Tap Fly? Ect.
Thanks for you replies in advance.

Yes, I did several searches every which way and I was surprised nothing specific to my question came up. So I re-posted the question. I know it has been covered before.

Extend in what way? Buy enough spare juice to get it home?

Roughly speaking best distance per unit of battery lift is what you get at full power with the forward sensors *off* which is about 28-30mph.

Obviously wind can have an effect on this but thats the no-wind scenario.

Video, sensors on and other things have almost no effect on battery as they're low current drain. Its all about motors and pitch.
