    Here's the DVR footage of my 3 hour 4 min duration flight. Footage starts after about 1 hour flight time. Video is sped up 4x.
    Aircraft is a Cularis fitted with 5000mAh 3S.

    @Nk4787, awesome flight and congrats. I am planning to do my long distance flight here in Nevada while relaxing in the warm sun catching rays in 80 degrees and drinking a cold one afterwards.

    First of all, cold builds character.

    Second of all, I now vow to trump each of your long distance flights by flying a mere 1 meter longer than your max distance so as to simulate rain on your 80 degree sunshine parade.

    Third of all, you're the one with both the RMRC anaconda and Zephyr ZIII aren't you? Any efficiency parameters on either (i.e. mah/km)? I'm starting to research potential 100km+ planes as I think my Talon is on her final stretch with retirement in sight (over 50 hours of flight on her).

    I've had all the character building I can stand; lived near the Canadian border where it would snow nine months out of the year and stay below zero for months. lol. You are already way ahead of me in terms of distance; I'll be lucky to get 15 miles with my current setup on the Anaconda (13,200mah). My best attempt at any distance will probably be with the SkyHunter I am planning to build here in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully, the SH can handle 26,400-30,000mah and provide less drag than the Anaconda with its landing gear and larger profile.
    Good luck on the 100km.

    Wow, that looks like there is plenty of room inside a talon. Always thought it is a lot smaller.

    Thank you!

    AUW comes in at a little under 10 lbs, think the cubic wing loading is at around 11 with this setup.

    If only you could get more of those batteries in stock I hear they're hard to come by now you just need a taller tripod so I don't have to wear yours like a hat congrats on the record !!

    Thanks Neal. Video is now linked to your record. Also updated your max flighttime record.

    Guess now itīs time to improve the VRx Antenna.

    Is it miles or km per hour?
