I'm wanting to try electrics but the flight time has me thinking. What sort of flight time can I expect with a TRex 500? I realize there's a lot of variables but will the flight times of a 500 with kit stock electrics be closer to 3...5...7...minutes? More ?
I see some 500 vids that are a blaze for 3 1/2 minutes. If this is what i can expect with a stock kit it may not be for me.....thanks for any info...

You can expect a hard 3D flight of 4:30. Some reportedly can get upwards of 7 minutes with easy flying, lower headspeed.

Now I am just doing simple hover work and a little figure 8 stuff, but I get a full 10 minutes on my T500 with a 2650 30C 6S pack and stock ESC and motor. Throttle curve is between 70 to 80% and running the 12 tooth pinion. Head speed is around 2100 RPM. This still leaves me one more minute until hitting 80% capacity of the pack.

For me as a beginner this works great, lots of hover and slow work time. Unlikely may folks would be happy with this simple flying but it was my target, (I had read a thread were one guy had time up around 12 minutes).

Gravity is what makes flying so much fun!

13 tooth pinion, stock motor, stock ESC, Turnigy 2650 mah 6S 30C pack yields a good 5-1/2 minutes of crazy 3D fun. I put back about 1800 mah into the pack when I recharge.

Ditto. That's up from 4:30 with other batteries. Except I put back over 2,000 mAh.

....Turnigy 2650 mah 6S 30C pack yields a good 5-1/2 minutes of crazy 3D fun. I put back about 1800 mah into the pack when I recharge.
1800/2650=.67 or 67% used.... 80%-67%=13% left to get to 80%...or 2650X80%=2120 total useable power

1800/5.5=327.27MA per minute then....2120/327.27=6.477 6.477-5.5=.97

There should be about 13% or one minute of flight still left in the battery if the drain is constant. If this is correct then you should get 6 1/2 minutes of 3D flight.....yes?
Even if you have to leave this margin to be safe 5.5 minutes is still good.
Ditto. That's up from 4:30 with other batteries. Except I put back over 2,000 mAh.
This would probably be due to different flying styles?.....yes? At 2000MA....2000/2650=75.4% There would be a little less than 1/2 minute left here... again,IF the drain is constant.

Thanks for the info....

3:20 - Scorpion 1400 with 15T pinion. But it's amazing!

Outrage and Turnigy 3000's putting in 2400 easy.

IT's what I do.
