Default 25 Minute Flight Time?

I'm looking for a recommendation on gear needed to keep either a 330X or 500X in the air for 25 minutes with a GoPro HD.
I'm thinking the 500X may be the better choice as it has a higher load capability that'd probably be needed for the battery to attain that flight time.

Experiences, thoughts?

Thanks

Hi Full,

I have a 330X-S and I just did a test flight with GOPRO (no case just camera) mounted to the top.
Battery was a fully charged 2200mah 3S Eflight. Flight time recorded in the video was 11:21 seconds
and it had lots of power left.

I charged the battery after the flight and it stopped at about 1500mah leaving 700mah unused.
I probably could have gotten a few more minutes out of it without harming the battery.

Hope this helps.

Brent

Leaving 20% capacity would be 1760mah. Sounds like you could do a 12 minute flight.
Could the 330xs carry all that with a 6000mah 3s battery?

I'm using 3X Zippy Flightmax 2100mAh 3S with total weight of 197g x3 = 591g and it flies fine. Without FPV camera, i think 6000mA will have no issue on take off .May be 10' prop can give some more lift.
