If your using a Duralite 4000mAh, then you should be getting at least 8-10 flights with what you have.

Take Care,

Well with the 1900mAh you should get 3-4 flights out of them, so it's perfectly normal.

I fly the 4000 in my Raptor 50 and it works well. With the 50 the extra weight is not really an issue. And to be able to fly all day is great.

Took my duralites out of heli...here's why!

Fly as much as you need, using a generator...just keep an eye on you xmiter pack, as the sun is going down. lol

You can use duralites in xmiter if you want, for those long days.

With the generator, you get rid of the heavier battery and put a smaller pack....as now, it becomes just a back up. All you servos , rec,gov. gyro...run off the generator.

Me and others have thoroughly tested this setup!

Just go with the duralite system. You will not be sorry, most people fly on the ave about 6 flights and call it day.

Duralite is nice...but

generator is way better, as you now have battery for a backup, don't have to charge batt pack as well. I have over 90 flights without charging.

It depends on the size of original battery, You are using a duralite, so you may be equal or just a tad more weight, hard to say. Some guys are running heavy packs and can switch to a lighter less capacity pack, when using the generator.
I'm now using just a 1700mAh standard pack.

3DX, you have a Raptor-50.

AH-1 pilot keeps telling you that a generator is better. Maybe so.
But what he has will NEVER FIT in your Raptor.

So I have to question what he is talking for.

Unless he is talking about MY generator http://www.AirWolfRC.com click on the link and you will see a Raptor 30/50 installation. It adds 2oz. to a 4.5oz existing battery.
