    I was suspicious of DJI's claim that hover time was 24 minutes but max flight time was 27 minutes (at 15.5 mph). So I decided to see. I wasn't going to fly down to 0% but decided to land at 10% or so, and keep at as close to 15.5 mph as I could. My test wasn't optimal because there was some wind so I was around 10 mph into the wind and a bit above 15.5 going downwind. But I landed at 9% after 25:07 flight time.Based on the was the battery was going down, I now believe 27 minutes.

    Just keep in mind that when you start depleting a Lipo below 20% on a regular basis you will shorten the batteries life... Great flight time info so you know how far you can push it, but I personally would not push my batteries that far very many times...
