With one 2600mah batt that will put me at 1770g AUW without FPV gear. About 150g for FPV gear. If the efficiency table holds true I should be able to hover at about 1.5-1.6a per motor. So 6-6.5 amp pull would give me about a 20min hover keeping to my 80% safe rule.
    Here's the other XL tank:

    The default idle speed on the on the Vector proved to be a little too much for the bare bones MK2XL on 14 inch props. As soon as I armed it, it shot up on its own! I hit my kill switch as fast as I could. The quad autorotated down from about 50 feet and landed without issue, it was a site to see.

    Now to crank the idle speed way down and try again.

    I pulled my vector logs. The only thing that looked odd was the "Multicoptor Stability Issue" errors and me hitting the kill switch. Any other vector guys out here, have you seen this error?

    The crash ended up breaking a set of mounts on the frame side and bent up all 4 of the screws. I'm just happy my motors and propa came out of it 100%.

    Wow, I'm so glad nothing else broke. Sorry about what happened. You should have replacements for most of them?

    Look very good Qbang, any update on your XL tank?
    The local fpver crashes his mkii tank multiple times, and he only broke the little dot on the mold of the motor mounts
