I just came across an instagram post from DJI, advertising a 16 minute flight time on the Spark. In my own exprerience i'm not getting anywhere near this, so i'd love to know if any of you more experienced drone pilots are achieving the advertised *flight time* of 16 minutes or even getting close to it? If so please share

Seems we have dueling forum topics on the same subject.  In any event, 16 minutes is the "optimum" flight time in "optimum" conditions.  I've covered my tyipcal cases in the other forum, and won't repeat them here, other than to say I get 10 minutes and I am not unsatisfied.

Oh goody another bloody 'how much flight time is everybody getting' thread.
Can we start a few more just because people are too lazy too look to see if a thread has already been started.
Another damn 'What flight time is everybody getting' thread

Think I'll start a couple more now - while I'm at it might as well start a 'How often should I calibrate the compass' and a couple of 'Atti mode made me crash my Spark' ones!!!
Jesus - just how lazy are people? Spoon feed me.......... Do you all sit on the toilet and shout 'Finished' when you're done (Rhetorical).

I’m sure my spark can go for 16 minutes, but I don’t want to exhaust the batteries and make charging time longer.
Today I did two flights. Both batteries ended up at 14 minutes with 19% battery left.
Good enough for me. I only get 4-6 minutes with my rc helicopters.

So, to make a post about something we must always search every damn forum just to check that there isn't something slightly similar?  Otherwise we get a wise crack guy making sarcastic unnecessary comments to belittle the OP and make them feel terrible for the rest of the day.  Think on matey, you can ask what ever you like on the forums and if its posted somewhere else then some nice person can direct you there.

Peace!

Laziness at it's best.
You probably dont use your indicators at roundabouts and junctions either because YOU know which way you are going !

Please consider the specs from our website. 16 minutes is tested under no wind at a consistent 12.4 mph. And I agreed with heliman that you should pay attention to the volume of power and return to home.
