As we know, a drone with high capacity battery will fly longer, but high capacity's weight will make our drone's flight time get short, but how do will calculated these data? I don't know. There are some high capacity batteries with different capacity and weight, which one can support my S1000 fly longest?
10000mAh 6S 25C Lipo battery;
12000mAh 6S 25C Lipo battery;
16000mAh 6S 25C Lipo battery;
22000mAh 6S 25C Lipo battery;


Are there anyone used these? What about them? Give me some advice.
Thanks.

Well...a much discussed topic....but I'm of a mentality which believes its not so much how things look on paper...so to speak. It all depends on how you fly it...for example, If I'm doing a downhill ski event I'm operating in the cold, high altitude and fast forward, stop, up and all sort of gyrations. Same at a surfing event...except without the cold and altitude.....so just between these 2 different types of events there will be a significant difference in available flight time. But the next thing, and I believe this to be the most important, is how you care for the batteries...meaning storage, discharging etc....You can have the best battery in the world but if you don't treat it with respect then your battery flight time will be significantly reduced. So, in short, I personally cringe when someone asks "how much flight time will you get.." because there is a tremendous amount of variables.....plus I didn't even get into weight which is another factor.  But...if you're just going to putz along...I agree with Peter and I have several 22000's and 16000"s. Hope this helps...

Really? It is said that high capacity also come with heavy weight, I want to know what 22000mAh battery do you use?

If I can just pipe in...For the exact same type of flying...yes the 22000 will give more flight time...But, not all that much....maybe 4-5 mins.....some may get a little more....So yes your right on the weight, it is a bit heavier...The Tattu you showed is a 6S2P battery which means its a redundant (2) pack per cell. There are batteries that are 6S1P which dont have the redundancy and you will find they are lighter. The Tattu is about 5.85 lbs and comparable single cells (21000-22000) are about 5.1. My experience, if it means anything, is my Tattu's have had a better shelf life than the single cells....but this is just me saying...hopes this helps a smidge..

Interesting and valuable comments from everyone above, and of course care and conditions make for a bunch of different outcomes.   And even for the same set-up, a flight in strongish, gusty winds, using GPS-mode to stabilize things will, in my experience, use up batteries almost as fast as a damn short-circuit.
