With mild 3D I have been flying 5 1/2 minutes and putting in about 75% back into the battery.It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

what do you mean by putting back 75% back into the battery?

you dont fully charge it? only 3/4 full?

Why?

he means hes using 75% of the Mah, replacing 75% of it. General rule of thumb is not to use more than 80% of Mah.Life is tough, it's tougher if you're stupid

Oh - Thanks for that.

5 1/2 mins is a good flight time to set my timer when performing mild 3D moves with my battery.

Cheers

What charger do you have??
Most chargers these day's display the Mah delivered at the cycle end.
For example if you have 2000mah packs, and your charger finishes after 1500, then you have removed 75% of the packs capacity on your given flight time..

I would think 5.30 solid 'mild 3d' would be about all a 2600 pack could deliver with a good set-up.

Depends on youre definition of mild 3d.!!!

mild 3D

tic tocs - funnels - piro flips - Hurricanes - loops - rolls etc ....

These are in no way in a Transition format - I have to hover between each manouver for 5-10 sec to get my bearing back etc ....

And they are in No Way tidy manouvers as I am still learning to perfect all of them etc .....

My Charger is the imax B6 - I have no idea what percentage I use up? after 5 1/2 mins of flying - I just charge the battery up via Balance mode untill it beeps and tells me its full and ready to use again.

Thats all I know about charging - besides the obvious - no. of cellls etc ...

Now you know about the 80% rule you can go out and start testing. Start at 4.5 mins and check how much you put back in, 80% of 2600 is 2080mah, if your not putting that much back in then increase your timer slightly, if you are putting back more than 2080mah then decrease your timer.

You will get longer flights with the 12T pinion and running 100% flat throttle curve.
60% of the time, it works every time!
