Flight time can change depending on several factors such as the type of flying (e.g. hover vs forward flight) and weather (wind, temperature, barometric pressure, humidity). These effects are intertwined. For example: in cold temperatures, air density is high, but less energy is available from the batteries.
Assumptions:
  • These flights were performed at temperature of 13 °C and elevation of 12 meters above sea level.
  • Two fully charged SL-8 Air batteries (2 * 7.3 amp hours).
  • Landing at 4% battery State of Charge remaining.
