How many flights should I be getting with the Hyperian 3000 battery.I read all paper work with this battery but no suggestion on low voltage.

3000 what?

Lipo? LiFe?

How many cells?

There is no info in your post to base an answer on.

I'm guessing you have a 3000mA LiFe pack.lol...

So do I.
My heli uses a little over 300mA a flight so I could get 8 flights but I limit it to 6.

Mine is a FBL .90

I literally never use the word literally right.

There's no way to really predict the exact number of flights. This is going depend on the equipment you're using.

For instance, on my Fury 55, I'm using BLS451's and a BLS251. I use about ~240mA per flight. I can get something like 9-10 flights off one pack.

A 90 size model will use more current. JR 8717's will use more current then the BLS servos. There's many things that can effect this.

The best way is to fly your model 2-3 times, then recharge the pack. See how many mA's it's putting back in, divide by the number of flights you did, and you'll get a rough number as to how many your using per flight.

Give yourself a safety margin, and you should be able to easily see how many flights you can get on a full charge.

I'm sorry about that. The battery is a 3000mA 2S Life Hyperion battery.
I was thinking if I put an one amp load on this battery and it read 6.5 that will be a good point to recharge. Thanks for the info Joe1911

Putting loads on LiFe packs doesn't really tell you much. They will read 6.6/6.5 volts even with the load.

FBL assume 300-400mah per 10 minute flight
Flybar, assume 200-300mah per flight.
I run a 20% safety margin, so 6-8 flights?

No way to load test LiFe. It runs at 6.5 until it does not.
You will know when, because your heli will impact the ground.
best bet, fly 6 flights and charge!

I have a 2100 LiFe pack and with my 700FBL, I use about 320mah per flight(around 7-8 mins).
I usually stop at 4 to 5 flights and recharge.

My 3000 LiFe back experience - almost 2 years with it now in my 700. I'm comfortable getting 6 flights with it. I don't think I've ever put more than 1800mah back in it, leaves plenty of margin. I run an all stock 700n with the flybar. The secret is to recharge every 2-3 flights until you are comfortable with what you are pulling from the pack and adding a flight or two between charges and measuring. You have to know what your setup is pulling and not rely on others for their numbers.
