I only have two batteries, that does me for a day any more and I get a bit bored of the whole flying thing and my neck hurts ;-)

If you think that is bad the wife and kids are worse, they're bored after 1 and the dog is convinced any flight will end in disaster and hides under the nearest bush until the flight is finished!

For their sake I have never considered more than 2 including the one which came with the Phantom.

I voted, but want to add more info:
  • I have 5 batteries with two P3Ps. But since I only fly one at a time, that's 5 batteries per mission.
  • Since I have two P3Ps, I also have two 100W charging AC adaptors, so I can charge two at a time. Note that you don't have to buy a new bird to get a second charger -- you can buy them separately (yes, they're a big pricey).
  • When I feel the need, I bring along my GoalZero Yeti 400, which has two AC outlets in addition to other outlets. I don't know how many charges I can get out of this thing because I haven't exhausted it yet. When I got it home, I immediately plug it into AC and leave it there until the next use (as recommended by the mfg).


In a typical mission around town, I can get away with 3 batteries without having a charger along, sometimes even just 2. Obviously, with the charger in item #3, I could easily get by with two batteries total. But when going out of town, especially on a road trip that's a full day or more than a day, the charger seems a must.

Added 1 Chinese knockoff and 1 DJI factory battery. Along with the original, I have 3 batteries. I fly them all to 30%.The remote, when starting out @ 100% charge, has no problem with 3 full battery runs.  I run the P3s, P3p & P3a may have different results.

Currently I rotate through 5 batteries for my P3P and 8 for my P4. When I recieved my P4 I gave away all my extra (didn't fit in my case) P3 batteries to my Father for his P3P that I bought him a few months back, he now has 5 batteries for his Phantom.

My guess is your results aren't accurate. What are the odds that 42% of people have 4 or more batter ...

I have 4, another one on the way. If people have the money, you better believe they're going to stock up on batteries, if they're using the P4 (or planning to) for commercial purposes, or just want to be able to fly all day for recreational purposes. They will invest in the batteries, given that they already invested almost 10x the battery's price in the aircraft.
