    My personal average flight is 4-5 minutes at a time.
    Average flight when I'm just flying and not up with a purpose is about 16 minutes with 5-8 minutes remaining (per app).

    I noticed yesterday I landed @ 16.5 minutes with 25% battery remaining. I thought that was kind of short but there were medium winds, over a large lake (Lake Erie) no hovering, flying around about 15-30+mph almost the whole time.

    Usually no longer than 15mins which leaves me lots of battery left in case I encounter issues on the way home.

    15 minutes is about my limit as well, reduces the pucker factor.

    Avg 18 mins. Leaves me with 25-30% battery. The longest flight I've ever had is 22 mins leaving me with 14%...never again, too bloody stressful!

    I've only had my P4 for less than two weeks and my average air time is 6.89 minutes, at a total of seven miles for 12 flights. This gives me an average speed of 5.08 mph.

    My longest time in flight is: 13 minutes 51 seconds.

    As mentioned above, it depends on what voltage/percent you fly down to.

    I get 18-20 min when flying down to 30%.

    Don't ever sell it. That's not normal.

    I was just wondering. I saw the advertised time is 23minutes but I'm assuming that is in lab conditions? Thanks everyone, reassured me that my battery's aren't knackered

    IIRC, you can get around 23 mins in hover with zero wind so no, not real world.

    I agree with that as well. I've brought mine down @ 22 minutes before in light use conditions with around 15% battery left...

    Same here. I just checked my logs and most of my flights are 19-21 minutes and i almost always land before the 30% warning

    Same as me.
    About 18-20 minutes and land at about 27-30%.

    I generally keep mine to 15 minute increments - mostly to save on stress factor. I have five batteries and since I fly solely for fun I generally will use them all up in a single outing...
