    Using ground station is there any way to estimate flight time? Obviously you would not want to program a flight that extend beyond the amount of battery time you have

    I haven't heard this discussed yet anywhere

    You can do a simulated version of the flight on your Ipad (in simulation mode) and it actually calculates time & distance covered. It's pretty close - I did simulated then did actual and actual was shorter by about a minute.

    While creating waypoints the app also gives an estimated time, makes it pretty helpful so you don't have to run a sim for each flight path
