    So i took my Typhoon H up for its first flight. All i basically did was hover at different altitudes and moved short distances taking a series of pictures. From the first pic to the last pic was only about 15mins. Then i was forced to land with low voltage warning. The battery meter on the st16 was showing over 14 volts and the little icon showed half battery. So i took it up again to about 85 feet to take one last pic and before i could frame the shot it started to return to home. Will the battery break in or is something defective. Other Typhoon h owners say they are getting 18 to 20 mins. Oh and the wind was minimal.

    Probably normal and the battery should get better after some cycles. I expect "normal" is more like 17, plus or minus 2, depending on conditions. If Yuneec tests got 22 minutes with the battery we're getting, I'll eat my hat. 3 Stetson hats so far this year.

    Billy,
    Don't get greedy with the battery and try to fiy it for 20 minutes.
    Wind can make the battery go down faster.
    and climbing a lot.

    I only fly my Typhoon G for 5 to 7 minutes.
    10 at the most.

    And then the battery gets charged again.

    Yeah, get used to watching the voltage and when it gets really low
    then bring it back before that.

    I get about 18-19 minutes out of my H in good conditions. Here's a tip I got from the owner's of my LHS that only sells multi-rotors...

    Battery readings should only be performed with a load on them. So use the readings just before you land and not when its sitting on the ground with motors off. It will always read higher. I've flown mine till it said 14.9 volts and landed. Later to check something I re-inserted the batter and it said 15.6 volts...
