On a different note, I did my first flight today using two RMRC 3S 8000mAh 35C packs
in parallel. It's 60% more capacity than my usual Turnigy 25-30C 5000mAh packs, but only
35% heavier so still pretty easy to hand launch (did so in zero wind). Made an easy 38
minute flight running 20-40A for the entire time (it'll cruise at 10A if I want), climbed
up the edge of the mountains a few thousand feet up, 6.6 miles out, dove 1000ft
down the ridges and climbed back up three times and then cruised around for a while longer
giving no thought to efficiency.
Vector reports cumulative distance at 29.2 miles using 14.9Ah (90% of my total capacity).
If I did that flight at 10-15A draw, could stretch it out over an hour, and probably double
my total cumulative distance (barring headwinds). I don't normally fly the Skyhunter for
distance, but I didn't bring my X8 to Montana with me this year, so I figured I'd
just brute force it with more battery capacity.
