I get 6 minutes at 2200.... Throttle management

You can yank on the sticks the whole flight and drain the packs fast, or you can use some finesse and still bang while letting them breathe and extend your flights "IMO".

I get more compliments when I fly at 1950 with big sky and smooth maneuvers than when I stick bang and pop the blades left and right

Man if I hovered for 6 mins at 2200 ide use 60-70%! Im doing 4.5 mins at 1950 using around 75% but there again im using a flybar and very noisy blades. If 8 mins were possible at 1950 rpm flying hard 3D there would be very few nitros about!

60% of the time, it works every time!

I suppose I should also point out that I live and fly at 5000ft elevation. There is much less air up here and so my experience is probably slightly different that yours

Surely it can't make that much difference! Don't you have to run a higher HS and run more pitch anyway to compensate for the lack or air?

We can but I think we just have less performance in the end. Having traveled to FFs at lower elevation it does make a pretty big difference.

I have recently come to the conclusion that what you all are saying must be true. I have 7 Turnigy's now 2x5k 2x4k and 3x3k and all except for the 3 new 3k packs are puffing with at most 35 flights. My 2 5k's both have less than 25 flights and are puffing and not just a little. They still balance perfect but I'm becoming less and less comfortable flying and charging them.

So I did the math, presented my case to the wife and she signed off on 3 new TP packs (I have to buy her an ipad of course). I have looked around on various web sites but most are out of stock. As TP experts anyone have a good online dearler with inventory?

Thanks, Scott

You can get them from horizon hobby or amain but I just call Thunder Power directly. I called on Friday on my way home from work to get 2 batteries for my 700e and he said they would ship out Tuesday. They are the best batteries and the warranty is great as well as the customer service. I believe I spoke with Jason!

I'm going to have to try them out, only heard good things about them. I presently use Hyperions (and have had good luck with them), and Turnigy (some dead on arrival, some did 70 cycles, still have 3 with now upwards of 90 cycles).
