Default Flight time?

I'm getting ~6 minutes with high throttle loops and rolls in wind. How about everyone else?

To clarify, after six minutes it will fly fine, but doesn't seem to have the juice for acrobatic maneuvers. On the other hand, I balanced the blade tracking and adjusted the throttle curve and now it punches straight up.

It is also amazing for forward flight. I've got it banking like a slalom skier, and it is just amazing to fly. I do think I want to paint the front blades hazard orange or yellow.

With the stock 500 I get around 10-12 minutes depending if I am hover and just flying around or doing flips and rolls. The turnigy nano-tech 600 packs are around 15-16 minutes. My hyperion 550s were around 13-14 minutes but they resemble jelly beans now

Most of the flying I do is just zipping around doing circuits and what-not. Probably consider it sport flying. Mostly just trying to learn to control the thing with fast orientation transitions.

I bet I've got a motor going, I have some replacements and will see if that helps.
