Battery Flight Time:
The PRODRONE PD4-AW Drone is a small 4-rotor drone that has been designed to cater to a number of aerial activities, which are recreational as well as business. Apart from the usual use of aerial photography and videography, this drone aims to also complete tasks like land surveying and spot inspections, which come in handy for industrial uses.
Users can fly it in most weather conditions, and can even land on water surfaces since it is completely waterproof. But a bigger advantage is that the drone can provide an unlimited flight time! This is because it uses a connected power supply via a long cable to provide an extended and unending flight time.
The cable can also be used to transmit video footage and send control signals to the quadcopter. In case you lose the radio signal, the cable is also a great way for safe operation.
If you wish to use the usual drone batteries to power this PRODRONE quadcopter, then users also have the option of using a 22.2 V, 6,000 mAh to 24,000 mAh battery that will provide a limited flight time of around 10 to 40 minutes depending on the size of the battery you choose.
