Hi Sergey,

congratulations, that is a pretty long flight! I have a question - I noticed in your log that you were flying in manual mode (good job keeping fingers on sticks for over two hours) - have you tried also autonomous flight for such a long time? I am curious about the performance of kroozSD.

Well, that's pity... I read that LiIons aint give their capacity if load is close to 2C. But in my setup the average current is about 10A, so for 7P cells it's significantly less than even 0.5C load. That is where my suspicion about inaccurate current measurements came from. But according my earlier investigations with precise amperemeter my current data should be pretty good.
So, probably the cells are really not good enough.

Best regards,

Hi Sergey.
Now that is along flight time for a rotorcraft!
I don't think that your sensor is wrong, i have yet to find a battery that
delivers its
stated capacity.
Every cell i have tried usually fall short of its advertised capacity by 10%

Hi guys!

Well, I finally done the new flight time record with my octo frame under
normal outdoor conditions.
The result is 129min 37sec. Well, it's not really way too longer, than
Ferdinands record, but the flight conditions wasn't very good today.
Partially was pretty windy.
The wind once even dropped my timer down from the logging installation box.
Looks like the NCR18650B cells in my battery are a bit old. Not sure if my
current sensor is 100% precise, but despite of the theoretical capacity of
23800mAh, or, according the seller:
the minimum capacity 3250mAh x 7 = 22750mAh, it gave me only 20230mAh.

The attached logs are in rar file.
I'll upload the flight video on my youtube soon.
