Pretty much always in P. I've been getting around 20 min shooting video, and taking photos. I usually land with above 20%. Longest flight about 23 min.

Yeah, I record pretty much all the time, so in case something happened I would at least have the preview video that is saved on the phone. I also screen record now, so I wouldn't need to do that anymore, but it is habit now. I think I could turn off object avoidance and stay in P for better battery life, but honestly, I'm happy with short successful flights for the time being....

My average flight time is 10-15minutes, I usually get the shot I'm looking for within that time frame. My longest P4 flight time according to my "HealthyDrones.com" report was 18:58 Air Time, took-off @ 97%, landed @ 27%.

About 16 to 17 minutes on average for my P3A landing with 30% battery left. On calm wind and flying days I can add another minute.

Average 15' flight, landing at 45%, full flight video recording, some pictures and some sport mode.
Will make longer flights now but based on the first ten, I presume I'll have the announced flight time

I'm averaging around 18-20 minutes on a flight, however I'm returning and landing shortly after the 20% left in battery alert pops up. I don't want to push my luck and run out of juice.

In P mode strictly, ascending and descending from ground to 400' multiple times while flying sweeping, long shots, i'm now getting 24-25 min average flight time between my 4 batteries. This was closer to 20-21 min when I first flew. This is also pushing it to the max, landing with 10-15% battery life left. I'm also flying in an environment with a minimum temp of 65 degrees F, usually closer to 80.

I get around 18 minutes and land with +/-25% battery remaining.
Quite surprised by the P4 owners since the official specs state "Max Flight Time        Approx. 28 minutes".

That's good to hear. As seasonal temps go up and I get more confident keeping the P4 flying to aro ...

100%. I was originally getting much shorter flight times when I first started flying the P4. Now I have over 6 hours flying time, 50 flights, and i'm seeing a noticeable difference in flight time length. The only thing I can think to attribute that to is that I am continuously using the batteries, breaking them in.

So I've been getting 18 minutes on average, but it's mostly me being cautious as opposed to the battery life. Lately I've been testing battery longevity and am getting 21-22 minutes taking off with 97% and landing with 12-15% in temps ranging from mid 50's to 70 deg F. wind has been variable but no calm days yet and I mix up P and S modes.

Hm interesting. I have almost 10 hours of flying...but only one battery has been with me since the ...

hmm that is strange...I don't know what else to attribute my longer flight times to. Have you uploaded any flight logs to Healthy Drones and checked the battery health/cells to make sure nothings wrong in there?
