    Good news, the low voltage cut off settings on the ESCs worked now, and I was able to fly a lot longer this time! The flight lasted about 104 minutes, and that is whole 34 minutes over the longest flight with the LiPo battery, which was 70 minutes, so we have here a roughly 50% flight time increase for a mere 100 grams increase in battery weight! Distance covered was 84kms! This plane flew longer than the EVE-2000, and that was my longest flying plane until now! The Clouds is the new duration leader amongst my planes now!


    Will charge up the battery tomorrow and will be able to calculate average cruise amp draw for this flight, but the weather was very calm with absolutely no turbulence, so I think it will be low! The flight lasted so long that by the time the battery's voltage dropped it was pitch black at the field! First time that ever happens to me!

    How many mAh do you use in 6S for your Clouds?

    The battery I used to fly with was 6S 6600mAh and was about 800 grams. Right now I am flying it with a LiIon 6S 10500mAh pack, which weights around 900 grams.

    Not problem for balancing at 29cm from the nose? Do you have a picture of the battery location?

    Balancing is not a problem. Just adjust the new battery to get the CG correct and you are good to go. I do not have a photo of where the new battery is... but that would depend on battery of choice as well as other gear and where it is placed on the plane.
