I am currently flying indoor small drones, but limited by size, the flight time is very short. Which indoor drones have longer flight time?

How is that a simple solution when you don't even know what type of gear they're working with?

@Johnson James, what type of drone are you currently flying? How old are the batteries you're using?
He said how he was flying small quads, which usually from what I have seen have batteries connected straight to the board. I'm only going with what I know about RC aircraft though. I know way more about RC trucks than anything.

I get that. But some of those tiny indoor quads are so small they have a built in battery that you can't replace. Having soldered to a tiny mainboard on a Blade MCP X heli, I don't recommend it unless you like exercises in frustration. The pad I had to solder to was about the size of a grain of rice. LOL Still burnt out one of the FETs, but didn't need it anymore since I went brushless on the conversion.

I also only worked on cheap toys for friends and children. So again, I probably know nothing about micro quads. Or at least not as much as the people who actually work on them :p

I'm not sure you’re going to find much more flight time no matter. The issue is battery weight. I have a Tiny 6 and a US65. Both are 65mm. It’s really difficult to run anything bigger than a 250mah battery in them. The size difference between a 250 and 500 mah battery is significant. The only things I could think would be maybe a Trashcan or a Mobula. They’re slightly bigger but I think they can run bigger batteries.
