My flight this morning In almost ideal conditions demonstrates the benefit of a good power to weight ratio coupled with reasonable aerodynamic efficiency.
Two climbs to about the limit of visibility for a 40" span plane.
The first decent was a glide, the second a twenty turn spiral dive!
The 1500mAh 3s needed just 167mAh to fully recharge!
For a flight lasting 13:50 that means an average consumption of just 726mA (just under 3/4A) and that includes the power for the radio and servos!
Miserly or what.

I just noticed your altitude scale goes down to minus 200 ft!

It's for when you hit the ground VERY hard.

Its the number of bounces on landing that made me chuckle...

Reminds me of being driven along the side of Strangford Loch in N. Ireland by a proud relative showing off his new BMW 530. The Sat-Nav showed that were travelling parallel to the shore, about 1/4 mile out,where the water is about 200 ft.deep. It could have been a contingent for something, but I never have succeeded in figuring out German logic!
Which of your planes is this one Simon?
