It depends on how hard your flying. On all my 2200 packs I get 4:10 with a curve at 100 98 96 98 100 and that's with sport flying. I'm still mainly tail in but I do consecutive flips/rolls, inverted hovering with punchouts and very high stall turns with piros. My packs come down pretty warm and are 3.7 to 3.73 per cell. I was getting around 4:40 with just loops, rolls and inverted. The full collective stall turns I think are adding the extra drain.....so much fun though.

Your best bet is to invest in a voltage checker you can use at the field. Mine fits in my pocket and was $10. Best investment I made.
