    how long does a 3.7v 200 mah battery last



    Like the title states. How long does this battery usually last. My playing time on the heli is sort of short.
    It gives me about 4 to 5 mins of playing time and at about 4 mins it hovers about 5 inches to a foot off teh ground.
    Is this normal or should i be in the martket for a new one?

    I guess you mean on the Blade MCPX... ??

    I have my timer set for 3 mins 30 seconds..

    The manual says, 4 mins for normal flying or 3 mins for Hard flying in Idle up.. I picked half way for my timer and it works well..

    If you are getting 5 mins that is great, but you are probably over discharging the battery by doing so.. and that will severely reduce the battery's life.
    My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my planes for what I told her they cost.

    I agree with rob. 3-4 min. The batts are dirt cheep at 10 bucks i have 6. That way i never have to wait on the charger. There are ways to use bigger batterys but it takes some modding.
    If you haven\'\'t broke it yet you are not trying!
