Do you get longer flight time in relation to the C rating or is it the mah rating that gives you the flight time as long as you don't pull more amps than the C rating.

Thanks Rich

^ +1 mah
Mah is only capacity, more gives longer flight time, in addition last longer over time/takes more abuse than lower mah lipos with same C rating under heavy use.
From my observations higher C ratings during hard 3D give me less flight time on the same heli.
I believe this is because the higher C rating, say 65C vs. 35C, battery dumps faster.

You would only see shorter flights from higher C rated packs if you run throttle curves. Using governor mode would keep the flight time the same.

Batteries don't 'dump', they are drawn upon.

60% of the time, it works every time!
