    WTF?

    Looks like a Frakenbattery.

    Sorry I can't help you but I don't see that configuration in the manual.

    this is the three batteries of 18650 connected in succession during the flight of 22 minutes, interconnecting a crossover balancing rope which is soldered in the battery of the battery, had previously flown and had no problems and now does not see the height

    What is the max weight will the Spark support when it comes to adding "spot lights" to it? I know the ones I looked at use a single AAA battery, and there's two of them.

    Is it that wire that blocking the downward sensors might be something like that.

    This battery weighs 170 grams, sparrow flies perfectly with it, the motors do not heat up and the controllability remains the same.

    I have been thinking of this mod but do not know how to connect the external battery to the 4 electric pad on the battery. Can you share this info?

    Is 18650 discharge rate too low to sustain as a external battery?

    Thanks
