How many flights.

I average 12 flights, or a little over 1.5 gallons a week.

I'm flying a Raptor 90-3D and two Raptor 50 Titans.

Been doing this since about January 2008.

I fly 3+ flights a day with my electrics with an electric only field near by and I will take one solid day to go to the nitro field and get in easily 10+ flights in. I spend a lot of time on the SIM.

I fly nitro week-ends and try to get 6 flights per day 3 to 5 days a week. During winter months (Dec. to March) I fly in a gym once a week (about 3 flights 450 or 500) and 3 to 5 flights (nitro) week-ends.

I tend to average 6-10 flights per day (electric 450's) about 5 out of 7 days in the week.

I just started a couple months ago and go for quantity to transfer the skills I learned on the sim into real life.

I skip days purposefully just to give my brain a chance to "digest".

So far it's working out. My brain would get fatigued early on and then I had a "dumb thumb" crash because I was overloaded and literally had a headache.

Now I make sure to cut back and take a day off or leave "early" if I even think I am tired.

It does call to me though. It is certainly an addiction. Even now I hear the siren song of my fleet calling, but already marked this as a day off.

I really love my helis
