Just curious.
What are you guys getting for flight times?
What motor/pinion/esc/batt/servos/gyro/rx/main blades/tail blades/pitch?
What style of flying do you do?

for me:
3 minutes before I notice power loss and land. Motor cool as can be and battery just starting to warm up.

stock motor/16t/stock esc/tp pp 850 30C/stock cyclic servos/DS290G tail servo/401/R617FS/205 tapered plastic mains/ square stock tails/+-10.

Flight Style = moderate 3D.
Using gov mode at 100%

I have two Kongs on the way to try vs my TP's. I will probably buy 2 align and 2 of the tenergy? packs at the local shop to compare all.
Never heard of the tenergy packs but will give it a shot.

Think I will have to invest in a new charger soon. The hobbico MKII is enough to keep me flying but I bet I could dump more into the packs with a better charger. Might be able to squeeze in an extra 30 seconds of flight time before the juice drops off.

I get 6 min of mild 3d and sport flying on a TP 910 batt with a 100% flat curve and 15 tooth pinion. Plastic tapered blades and evertything else stock.

I am using everything stock that came with the super pro kit including the tail servo with Align batteries and Align 205D Carbon Fiber blades and I am getting 6 minutes of hovering putting back 650mAh.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
