Battery runtime is not as expected
Note: There is a known bug affecting battery life with the Fly6 CE. This has been remedied by firmware update V1.1.26.026. If you’re running a previous version, please update your firmware to improve the device battery life.
For expected runtimes depending on your settings please see below. If for any reason your Fly6 CE is not close to the expected runtime, please try the following:
- Ensure your Fly6 CE is fully charged (LED will illuminate green)
- Update your Fly6 CE firmware
- Perform a bench test
If the results from the bench test are well below expected runtime and your firmware is up to date, please create a support ticket for further assistance.
Your Fly6 CE runtime will differ depending on your light mode and video settings.
Expected runtimes are listed below:
|Up to 7 hours||1080p at 30 FPS (frames/second), camera only mode with Electronic Image Stabilisation turned off|
|Up to 5 hours||Lowest solid mode and camera|
|Up to 4 hours||Medium solid mode and camera|
|Up to 3 hours||Highest solid mode and camera|
Note: Depending on the age of your unit, battery deterioration can be expected. Road conditions and scenery complexity (eg. a desert as opposed to a forest) can also affect battery runtime as the EIS and higher bitrate will consume more power. Colder temperature also affects battery runtime.
