More flight times & throttle trick 4 U

So 27 minutes if you charge the battery over 7 hours, change altitude as
little as possible, have no wind, and fly until the throttle starts fading. With the 2 battery charges you can fit in a day, that's 54 minutes, longer than the Blue Angels get to fly.

The trick to detecting battery death is to throttle up until it starts rising and see if
it starts falling automatically.

The speed controller shuts off at 27:30. Could probably stay up longer if we had
wind and constant forward motion. It's getting so cold because of
Idaho, around 20 minutes your fingers start to freeze up. Loss of finger authority you might say.
