I use HK Turnigy Nano-Tech 2S 260 mAh. It's positioned way forward just behind the motor mount. Balances perfectly and I set my timer to 4 mins. Comes down around 3.88V/cell.

Yeah, that's about what I'm getting.

Tried not to ever take the batt over the 80% discharge point.

I'll have to try better throttle management throughout the entire flight to see what I can do. I was getting the same run time using both your TP325 70C and the HYP400 35C. Perhaps if I re-adjust the elevator a bit to fly level at a lower throttle, I'll be able to keep the throttle down a bit and extent my run times.

There must be an attachment problem with one or both wings.
When all is attached properly they line up, no adjustments are provided.
After I pronged mine one wing had an attachment issue realigned and reglued and all lined back up.

The 2" of snow on the ground melted so I flew my Pitts in the park again. My old batteries cooled too much while flying which reduced the flight times to only 3 minutes. In a few days I will buy new batteries on Black Friday discount day.

I saw a guy with what looked like a folded wheel-chair but no, it was a huge folded Drone Heli.
He unfolded it and it was about 5' in diameter with 8 props that looked like 12". It had a normal-size rotatable camera.
The maiden flight was programmed and controlled by GPS. The wind was gusty but the flight was extremely stable. It slowly rose from the ground, hovered, rose and flew over here then over there and came back then slowly landed.
It costed as much as a mid-size American car.
