I am trying to test max flight range. I know that sport mode burns the battery life faster then Standard mode, however does it burn twice as fast? The top speed in standard mode seems to be 20 MPH vs 40 in sport mode.
If I can go twice as fast I can test my outer limit range and still have battery life to return home providing my battery doesn't burn twice as fast. Any formula to determine this? Comments?

Someone did an full test on the forum a while ago for a school project - try search for details.

Conclusion was that Sport mode gives you more range

I have flown over 300 miles with two different mavics and 7 batteries and find that full throttle sport mode reliably allows more distance than p mode with obstacle avoidance turned on.

I have never tested max distance using p mode without obstacle avoidance.
