power required!!!

Well been out today with the eagle,
This time i fitted my jeti sensor (mui30), this would give me a reading as to how much current i am using. What supprised me is how little power this bird requires to stay airborne!
I set alarms to warn me when 10v had been reached (3s 1200mah) and an alarm when 1000mah had also been reached.

To give you a clue-- after 21.02 mins my voltage alarm went off so landed and suprised i had used 948mah of my battery.

Next flight i monitored the amperage during flight.
Max current---11 amps (climb)
to maintain level flight 2.6 amps-3.0 amps
the differance being fully charged pack and one that has parcial discharge

So am i happy or what this bird is very very easy to fly and only requires ailerons and elevator couldn't be more simpler

Happy chap
Iain
