I did the upgraded pigtail as well and went from 1:30-2:00 flight times (with 14000kv fast motors) to about 3:30 flight times! It has something to do with the actual connector itself. For some reason, when the motors draw out a lot of amps, the stock connector "bottle necks" the higher current flowing through it. (Probably a weird design, probably wasn't designed for high amperage discharge). The awg of the upgraded connector is the same if not a little bit thinner, which is pretty weird. (Without the upgraded pigtails, it never discharged my battery all the way! I checked with a voltage meter and it allways went from 4.2 to 3.9. Now it goes to 3.7v!)

I have learned that if you do the insane motors or anything higher than The 14000kv fast motors, you need to do the LVC mod or you will get 15s flights because of the amp draw.

Hope this helps!

sorry not true about the motors for everyone...i upgraded the motors on my inductrix to 18,000kv with no problems at all. That plus the upgraded pigtail with 205-210 batteries gives me an honest 3 mins 45 sec's of flight time with the camera running. It is luck of the draw sometimes with these and their boards. Some run great (like mine) some do not. The E010'S seem to be more flakey than the Inductrix (higher quality boards and all)

I never thought to check the voltages of my batts after a flight. Which is kind of silly, because I Always do that with my plane batteries... You're absolutely right. The Inductrix is only taking them down to a resting voltage of around 3.85 volts or so. And I do notice some warmth at the connector.

You guys have convinced me. I'm off to order some new pigtails.

Thanks Dan, and Thanks Smash!


the pigtail is a great start to improve the flight times even when stock...but the LVC on the inductrix is set pretty high...so that cna hamper you. Getting the bigger batteries is a great way to help too. I posted the links for the pigtail on the previous page.
