Thanks! It's not the tri here - but the TBS Discovery. 3600mah 4cells. Quite consistent as daemon states. Around 8mins on my timer and most of the time I have 30% left. If I stress out my timer I run down to 20% and still be save. In fact range issues here are battery issues ;-)
Of course trappy had a fine solution to this: spread spare batteries to friends and fly some waypoints with "refuling" - I guess you all remember his "Long range is boring TBS Style"...

Yeah, right. Just came back from a Ski-Trip where I had to film. It was awesome! Video will follow shortly.

as long as I'm back before the 9 minutes are up. It's a lot more consistent
than a fixed wing, and I often find I'm instinctively back just in time.
Absolutly Ian! In fact I don't use OSDs anymore - becaus with some experience you know the time limits of your batteries and a simple timer on the gas stick is enough.
