The additional load of solar panels may cause higher power consumption during the flight, especially in bad weather. Did you carry out any test that your solution is better than the one with a larger battery?

the solar panel I use is light and its weight doesn’t add much load to the drone. As I calculated, the balance between flight performance and the weight of the battery is very tricky to solve. A heavier battery means that greater demand for energy consumption, which is not efficient.

What is the weight of a Drone?

Have you tested the flight time with different payloads?
