    Curious what others have for their own personal limits in regards to distance they fly their Vision+.


    Ground Station measured round trip flight distance in feet -> _____
    Altitude climb -> ______
    Battery % remaining upon landing -> _______


    I've only done about 15,000ft with 500ft of altitude and from what I remember I had over 50% upon landing. Curious what other people use as personal limits for long distance flights.

    What I do is fly into the wind fly until about 30/35% hit cancel on the low battery warning.and start the way back in attitude mode if I am doing 15/16 mps on the way out 17/18 mps on way back.have pushed it farther but that takes a little more skill.if you have more than one battery you can do a test run out about 4/5 km then return home.next flight you will know your speed and distance better by the third battery you will know just how far you can go each flite just a little longer.

    Couple miles is the best I've done on my P2.

    However, for long range flights, I pay close attention to the wind, am very conservative with battery, and try to only fly over "green" or otherwise not human populated places.
