I am getting a TBS quad copter and will be doing FPV with UHF setup and Naza lite. For you guys who are FPVing quads, what kind of flight times are you able to get? I do not want to go fast and don't care about power just flight time and enough power to do the job. I am brand new to this multirotor stuff but have been in helis for years and I know that on the same heli you can configure the setup in our radio to do high rpm 3D and get 4-5 minutes of flight time and on another setting (with very low head speed) get mild 3D of 10-12 minutes and some are getting 15-17 minutes on the same "electronics" setup. So is that the case as well with these quads? What KV motor would you recommend for getting the most flight time?

Did he crash? Dang I missed it!

Not thinking right
I realized that I was thinking about a collective pitch set up vrs a Fixed Pitch set up. So obviously you cant set the rpm and then adjust pitch. It is just a matter of how much power is needed with the particular pitch of the particular blade you have chosen as to how efficient the machine runs correct?
So hopefully some of you guys flying a similar quad can tell me your flight times along with blade choice and motor kv.

Did he crash? Dang I missed it!
