The instruction manual has several different versions including the keyfob one pictured.
I tested mine. I got one 4gb file of 80 minutes, turned it back on and got one 7 minutes long before it shut itself off. I could have turned it on again and filmed for a short while again but did not want to completely drain the battery.

So I would say that at least 80 minutes on a charge is safe.

What I intend to do for thermaling is to launch, and if the flight comes down in short time, stop and restart the video in case the next launch results in a long duration flight.
