    Here is my longest to date. I was just curious how far you guys have went without a battery mod in a single flight.

    This is total flight distance. It's not in one direction.

    I believe on one charge you should be able to get 5.5 miles on factory battery without running too low and damaging it. I had 26% left.

    If you will notice most of my long runs it cloudy like that .High humidity . I wonder about that .
    Some have told me water absorbs 2.4 but I don't think so.

    I have heard the same about water. I was told to stay up pretty high off of the lake I fly at. I only try when I'm in my boat in case I have an issue anyways. Not much recovering from a lake dunk...

    That is serious 6.28 miles is a lot on one charge. I'm going to test mine out soon like that. See what I can come up with.
