LiPo Battery Times
So I've got a CP2, with 2 stock batteries. I've yet to take it out, but have 100's of hrs on the sim. Of course, sim time hardly counts when batteries can fail in real life. So, I'm gonna head out to pick up a count down timer, what flight times should I expect to get while learning hover etc. in real life?

The stock battery is 11.1v 1000mah 10c

Thanx

Get yourself a Lipo Lcd voltage battery checker!, Esky makes a good one for about $10, dont go under 9.6 volts at any time, to be safe, start at 8 minutes on a full charge, and take it from there, hope this helps you.

I set my ESC (CC-25) softly cut off at 9V. You should land when you feel it lacking juice. Wait for the battery to completely cooling down before recharge it. I set my charger (built it myself) to charge at a slow charge rate (250mA) for individual cell at 4.18V each. You will get an extra time to fly. I had more than 100 cycles of charges, and my battery is still fresh (expect to have another 150 more cycles)

Happy flying.
