    Hi, anyone who can guess or know how long time you can fly with a tethered H w/o overheating the motors or anything else in the drone. Let's say you fly in 25C / 77F.

    I doubt the tether would matter as long as it is not a log chain.:)

    Guess you mean long chain? But the load of the chain will probably compensate by the less weight of the smaller battery? So one can fly "forever"?

    I misunderstood. Did not know you meant a powered tether w/o using a battery. My bad.
    I have no idea, if it is a commercial setup, the manufacturer should be able to advise.

    Ok, here is info and I doubt Yneec will tell how long you can fly before it breaks or the motors will burn!

    Put a thermocouple on a couple of ESC's and motors to baseline the temps. Run thermocouples up to the system to monitor temps. When you observe a delta large enough to generate concerns, land. When there's no reference data you have to develop your own.
