Flew the merlin for the first time on the 1000mah lipo. Had a 13 min flight on half power and less, all great. Then a second of 10 mins on mostly half to full power, still plenty of life left. When I got a chance to charge it, a reported 513mAh went back in. So that probably means I could get a good 35-40 minute flight out of it, very happy with that! Also had a try of inverted flight with some success, at altitude mind! It was a bit gusty but she appears to be happy inverted, will try some more the next time out.

Wind was 5-6 mph max, tried the Weasel but there just wasn’t enough lift. Thankfully only a short walk to get it 🙂
