hello are the flight times around the 5 to 6 minute mark purely because you are all really into 3d and running headspeeds over 2000 rpm. i have converted a voyager 50 ,the motor i use is the actro 24-4 on a 14 tooth pinion with 6s 3700mah flightpower pack, the headspeed is around 1750rpm and i get 8 minutes using 3000mah out of the pack everything is really cool when i land.my voyager 50 must be heavier than the trex 600 so it must be down to the hard 3d flying and high headspeeds that are giving the short flightimes.has anyone come up with a good setup that will give around 1700 to 1800 on the head and still give around 8-10minutes of normal flying around.

the majority of folks talking about 5min flight times are all heave 3D users on the tp or fp packs. For folks with mild flights the numbers go up to about 8m easy. I think most folks end the flight prematurely because they dont want to take too much out of the pack.

Right. I get about 4.5 minutes of 3D from a TPX5000.
This usually pulls about 3-3.5A from the lipo. Just under 80% to keep the pack life up. At $300 ea, battery failure prevention is not an option.
