I have been working on Modifications to 1 of my Typhoon H-Pro's to allow using OEM & Aftermarket Batteries without having to use a Battery Adaptor.
Finally had a chance to Test Fly it when the Smoke from all the Wildfire's here in Northern California finally started to get pushed out by the Wind from the Pacific Ocean.
I had a Backlog of Test Fly's to Perform on Customer Repairs, so I Hovered the Modified Typhoon H with the New 85c 14.8V 7200 mah Battery at 100' and left it there while I worked on the other test fly's.
I left it in the Hover for 14-1/2 minutes, landed it and still had 50% Capacity left on the Battery. I would have let it Hover for Longer but since the Battery was New, I landed to make sure the Battery was not overheating, after Landing I removed the Battery and was Happy it was just warm to the Touch.
I will Test it again when I get the Chance, and am Hoping for 25 minutes + Flight Time.
I will Follow Up when I have a chance to Fly again.....Stay Tuned......;)

@davemh , should be back in the area by the end of October. I can’t believe all the BS going on with the TV developers. Hope to see you before long.
