By my calculations he should ideally be getting 2.5 minutes at full power and ~ 4.5 minutes running about half power.
Do these numbers look about right to you all?
What are typically some running times you are getting with 3s-4s batteries?
Could the esc's timing be adjusted to give more flight time?
Hey Bill, I use the 3300 3cell battery and have my timer set for 4 minutes. When I land I take a reading of the battery and each cell reads around 3.80v. ---Gene
