    Is there any way to tell how much battery power is left in the transmitter. I'm on flight #17 now and i worry about it a little bit. theres no signs of failure. I'm just not good at judging battery life.

    I have 38 flights on mine, and they are still going strong on the factory supplied batteries. There is a two-stage warning when the transmitter batteries become low. Stage #1 the LED will blink slow red, and the transmitter will emit a series of slow beeps. When the batteries are critically low, the LED will blink fast red, the transmitter will beep rapidly, and then shut itself off.

    Are you using EC or FCC mode? FCC takes 5 times more power.
