The X8 is powered by a rechargeable lithium polymer (LiPo) battery. When fully charged, the battery provides up to 15 minutes of flight time depending on payload, environmental conditions, and flying style. Flying with a gimbal, GoPro, and FPV system can reduce flight time by up to five minutes. Flying aggressively or in high winds can affect power consumption and reduce flight time. Monitor power consumption using the flight-data display on the controller (press and hold the DN button).
When the battery reaches the low-voltage limit, the X8 initiates a low-battery fail-safe and lands automatically at the current position. To avoid a low-battery fail-safe, check the controller’s flight-data display regularly to monitor battery voltage, and end your flight before the battery reaches the low-voltage limit.
