Wonder what kind of flight times they are getting. I don't imagine it makes much of a glider if you run out of juice!

I believe, they said at acro power, it'll run about 15-20 minutes. So, just enough duration for a routine, then land.
If you stay over the field, you could make it back. Not very reassuring though.  :lol:

Wow, imagine flying becoming affordable again. When you subtract the price of fuel, oil, maintenance and engine overhauls it could be within reach of us working stiffs.
