my experence so far.... 5 charges on each pack 20 flights.Hey,,,
I am currently getting about 7min without the mount on right now.
I have 4 nickel metal packs and I cycle them,
pack1, pack2, pack3, pack4, pack1 and so on...
I have had approx 20 flights right now, and I noticed an increase in power and flight time so far. I have cycled/ charged each pack for flying 5 times each.
I am getting about 7 mins right now, were i used to be getting just over 6.
NOTE: I must say that I do have my belt tension on the tigher side then the loose side right now, but since you can seem to adjust the tension easiler to get more flight time ( ie: move the tail pulley gear assembly back 1-2mm in the frame set, then this would be a move I will do soon ).
JOHN: Thanks for your comments here I was wondering the same and tried getting a hold of you for some time now without luck.
NOTE: This Voyager 50 E machine is built with one purpose in mind from what i have read and discussed, aerial photography.
As such, its not expecting to be flown like a 3D ship.
I did some very mild 3D, stall turns, funnels, piro' circles etc... but only mild.
With this mild 3D I was getting about 6 mins -- right now after 5 charges of my packs.
I have not flown it with the camera gear on it yet, ( YET! -- but soon ! ), but today I flew it like I was taking shots. Very slow flying, stopping, hovering, etc.. etc... going from on location in the sky to another hovering..
I got 7 mins this way... I still have a pretty tight belt right now.
thanks, and cheers,
