Does anyone know or maybe have a good guess for how many amps the MM draws?

20? That's what the Samsung cells are rated for.

No, it's less than that. Flying sport mode with full acceleration is somewhere above 7 but less than 10 amps. Flying in Cinesmooth is below 5.4 Amps and p-mode is between 5.4 and 7 amps. Full braking takes 7-8.5 Amps.

Here is a screenshot from airdata with Flight specific Full range Amp map.

That is a a very broad range of amperage, especially on a multi-cell Lipo. In high winds, that is a problem.

Straight from the specs for 2400 mah to give 30mins that’s 4.8A average. Peak load will likely be close to twice that.

Not necessarily. Why? The wind problem you are likely to have is inability to fly home against it. The FC will limit propulsion output well before you find the C rating of the cells as a limitation.
