Dji spark promote that spark battery life is 16 minute, but from the review from them that have tested the spark...the normal spark battery life is between 10-12 minute
Is it possible for dji or after market company to produce batteryi that have more maH juice than the stock dji spark original battery
The stock spark original battery weight 95g...for my thought, it can double battery maH juice for adding 94g weight {:4_181:}
Will the balance of the spark handle diffrently by just adding 94g weight

I'm sure DJI will increase the battery life through firmware updates, it will come with a price, loss of power and top end speed. DJI has done it before, aggressive flight will probably only get 8-9 minutes, very disappointing ....

Ok thanks for the reply...normally with this firmware updates, how must time more that we get
I am new in using drone...by adding 94gram weight, will it make the balance of the spark behave big differently

In my experience with racing drones, the trade-off with bigger batteries essentially equals out when nothing else is changed. Extra weight makes a big difference to flight characteristics so feels more sluggish and since its heavier, it tends to go through more power. All in all I am sure DJI played with many variations before landing at this one so I believe it will be an exercise in futility.

A heavier battery would unbalance the unit and cause performance issues. Keep in mind that its only slightly bigger than the Mavic battery itself, so fighting any sort of wind or aggressive flying will affect the flight time.
