Default drones battery dies too soon need help

On my SYMA with camera , Orion , large drone I purchased regular batteries like Gens-ace, Nano tech by Hobbyking , and with higher rated C rates like 30 to 50C and at 1300 MAh -so why are my 2 cell batteries not lasting more than 20 flights on the same drone as compared to my airplanes they last forever , whats the fix getting a 80C battery?

Maybe you are running them down to far. Hard to say for sure but I wouldn't buy batteries from Hobby king to start with. Try some from RedWing R/C. And if you have room get a higher MAh. The C rating is the discharge rate. The MAH is how long they last per flight.

I meant no offense. You have to understand that many people read the info on these forums. Not just the person who posted. You thinking the C rate was going to make your batteries last longer lead me to believe you were new to the game.

Oh that is OK its just that I am new with drones , its just me trying to figure out if i'm doing something wrong with my battery in my drone or maybe the drone itself is putting a load on the battery so this is new to me with 4 rotors turning .. .
