first of all, you're not flying a "production" housefly kit, so your flight times won't represent accurately what a HF kit will do.

second, whenever someone wants to measure something accurately, it must be done in a controlled environment. different flying techniques will introduce too many variables and yield different results.

i think most of us are aware that flight times will increase if you fly a heli around, but the most practical way to measure flight times is indoors out of GE in a stationary hover (which obviously requires more power) .

you can criticize the way other people fly, but this is way that we've been measuring flight times on the Piccolo BBS.
