    Does anyone know how many flight cycles the remote controller and the wi-fi unit batteries will last. I am sure both last through several cycles, but when should you be concerned about low batteries?

    The remote controller will start a sort of slow beeping when the batteries are low (almost impossible to miss)
    It will still run normally for a while even then - no need to rush home and land - though it would probably be unwise to fly far if it starts as you take off.
    You should get several weeks of use before that happens, I think mine did about 40 flights at least on the supplied AA batteries.
    It makes sense to have a replacement set on hand.

    The range extender is good for several flights but seems to lose charge even if not used - advisable to top it up daily if you are using it.
