I have a bone stock BNF so the ESC is the 30A and the battery is the stock e-flite 2200mah 25C that comes with it. I can't really tell you what it came home with or how much I have to put back into it to get a full charge because I am using the stock charge that came with it.

I am stuck using that charger for a couple more weeks because my RC budget got eaten into helping out a family member cover some post Christmas bills, so all I had the money for was the BNF itself and not the battery adapter so I could use my accucell 8150 and a couple of batteries so I could make more than one flight without recharging

Looks like 5 minutes is the norm though, so until i can get the EC3-EC5 adapter that is what i will stick to.

Thanks everyone

Mine is pretty much stock, with only added Eflite Retracts and flaps and a Parkzone Extra300 prop. I set my timer for 6 min. I usually put back 1700mAh back into the packs. I use pretty strict throttle management and try to fly in as scale a manner as possible.

...and keep it off the deck it breaks at the drop of a hat.

I'm learning to fly flat and slow using a wide range of throttle from the 4s 480 plus swinging a 10x10 and a 11x8. She will cooks in the dives too. What a versatile & fun plane...a hundred plus flights on it last year.

I was flying 7 min on the stock setup and dropped the timer to 6 on the Extra's Prop.

I've found the Extra300 Prop to be stronger than the original 9.5x7.5. That stock one is so thin! Granted a high throttle nose plant will break any prop.

just ordered 5 more 2600 30c batts to add to my collection. 18 total batteries now but my stock 1800 parkzone and 2100 eflight batteries are pretty toast so really 16 good batteries now. figure between the t-28 and now the jug ill need them. my 2 toasted batteries cant even get me off the ground without setting off my voltage alarm! after that i can throttle back and fly slow for a bit but whats the point to that.
