Electric all the way!!!I am running two T600E's one is for Sport/AP flying and the other for Scale. Both are running at 7 minutes straight with 30 seconds of safe time (meaning this will give me an extra 30 seconds before reaching the 75% mark, since i try and never even get close to the 80%) On average i put back 3400-3600 mah on Thunder Power 6s 5000mah batteries. I have two and i take my charger to the field. My routine is fly the first pack out first, then after about 10 minutes of cooling it goes on the charger for charging which usually only takes about 1 hour and 23 minutes to fully charge on a Thunder Power 610C charger. While that battery is charging I usually fly my Trex 450 which has 3 batteries and can fly for about 4 minutes with hard 3D. This takes most of the time while flying and hanging with my buddies and watching them fly. At this point i go ahead and fly the second battery that was already charged and by the time i am done the first battery is usually finished charging and now i can fly it as well for my last flight of the day so i get 2 600E flights back to back for a total of 3 flights at 7 minutes each which is a total of 21 minutes on the 600E. This is my normal routine and i really enjoy it. i used to fly nitro and hated the noise, mess, tuning etc... I had to get used to the little bit shorter flight times right at first, but now i love it and would never go back!
Hope all of this info helps you understand what the difference in flying nitro verse electric entails.
