DJI Mavic flight time is 25 minute.
DJi Mavic battery is 3830mAh, 90% is 3447mAh.

3447 / 25 = 137,88mA per minute.

This is insane flight time for 8 inch quadcopter.

The way you calculate theoretical flight time is wrong. You use raw mAh values but you forget that li-ion cells drop to much lover voltage when they are emptied. Lower voltage might not be enough to keep the craft in air. Or at least it will draw much more current at low voltages. I have tried similar 3" build with li-ion cells and calculated over 35min flight times but can only get around 26 minutes because of this. Sure this thing will fly for a long time but I would guess maybe around 40 minutes. 3s3p battery is also a lot of extra weight when it is nearing empty and cells drop below 3V.

you are correct, let's see what we can achieve with this project, thanks!

Thanks for the idea for this project anyway, I'm building one too. What FC/ESC stack you have on your video? It is not the same than in your description?

I am waiting to arrive fc, esc, vtx and runcam split 3 nano, to complete the assembly of the drone, arrives in two weeks. hug!

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..
