I am thinking about getting a Raptor E325 and was wondering about how much flight time I can expect from a battery pack. I know they all vary in capacity, but what is the aproximate time frame?

So how many packs do you guys have? I guess you gotta keep swapping prettty fast when flying out in the field?

it depends on how your flying, if your just hovering around with a rather slow head speed you can get 7-8 mins but as soon as you bump up the head speed and start doing some more spirited flying you'll probably only get 5-6 mins. I've got mine set at 80% on the gov and put back in 1400 mah after 5 mins of airobatics.

i fly with 2 2170mah batteries and its plenty for me... three would be nice though

I carry 4 packs. Charge them all and when you are at the field you charge the first one while you fly the other 3 and keep rotating them. I usually take a breather between flights so it works out just about right.
