Is it normal to get only 10 minutes flight time (hover only) with a 14oz tank of 30% fuel on a os 50 non hyper? No header tank

I use wildcat 30%

That does sound like you may have it a little on the rich side. I normally get about 10 minutes on 10 oz. of 20%.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

with 30% you do burn more fuel because you have to run it richer than 15%. I lost flight time when I switch over from 15% to 30% fuel.

15 min on a evo tank (330ml I think) with 10% nitro.

Usually the lower the nitro the leaner the needles the more airtime you get.... at expensse of power of course. Not that I miss it. Engine quite strong in most maneuvers and no bogging.

20% nitro gives me around 12 min.

I was getting 12-15 minutes when i was using 15% coolpower.

I picked up 2 cases of 30% wildcat from the local hobby shop @ 10$ per gallon the other day...Hobbytown is moving to another location and they didnt want 2 move the fuel so we all got great deals

about 12mins with 15% local brand.
If I would do more fff it probably would be 15mins. Hovering takes more fuel just as does 3D

Running 30% CP and getting around 11-13 minute flights.

Some of the flights last longer than others cause the last 5 minutes are usually all autos...

I must still be really rich.
Raptor 50 SE with whatever the stock tank and header is I get 6.5 to 7 min with Sig 30% and OS Hyper 50 and fairly aggresive flying.

Yes still a bit on the rich side and the hyper uses less fuel than the 50 sxh
