View Full Version : Flight time

What kind of flight time can I expect running a 6s 1300MAH setup? Mainly sport flying and mild 3d.

That's a very loaded question..

What motor and ESC?
What head-speed?
Is it flybarless?
What blades?

Stock motor (1800KV I think) Cheap hobbywing ESC and outrage 6s 1300mah batteries. Sport flying and mild 3d. Just need an estimation on flight time thats all. Running a flybar with carbon blades.

from about 6 to 9. it really varies according to variables that your not giving.

I have only done sport flying on normal mode with 1600kv motor, 11T, and 1300mah batteries, FG blades, flybar set-up, 40 amp hobbywing ESC running at 73% with 5.25 draw for servos, and I have gotten 10 minutes of flight time "with room to spare". The end voltage on such a flight has never been less than 22.2V!

6 mins. CF blades, 11T, 1700kV, Jazz 40 at 75%.

I get about 5min running the 1700k on 12T with 85% on the jazz.

I do with mine precisely these figures.

Same as Capi's setup, 12T 1700kV at 85% on the Jazz 40-6-18. But I set my timer for 4:30 and when it beeps I climb a LOT and then do a big auto. I put back right under 80% just about every time.

1600, 11t, Jazz 40 at 70%,~2500hs, wood blades, 7 min
