Anyone know about what a twin ignition draws per flight. trying to decide wether to run a separate batt on ignition or just run it off the (2) 2100 Life's I'm going to have powering the plane. 70cc mamba bipe BTW

They'll all do roughly 100-150mAh for a 10-12 minute flight

I run (3) 2100 Life's on my Edge. And have the ignition off those as well. I usually fly 4-5 flight before I even thinking about charging. But could probably get 10 and still be on the safe side. That is with a dual ignition for a 111 and 8 large servos. With IMAC I think I'm only using around 300mah per flight, usually around 10-12 mins of flight time.

I think you will be fine running it off the same batteries.

You'll be fine for 5-6 flights pretty easy no harder or longer than you fly.
Anyone got any Cardens for sale???? I need another one!

My DA-70 twin draws about 300 ma in a 12 minute flight. I have a couple of twins using Rcexl ignitions. They use less than 100 ma in 12 minutes.

It wasn't a remark on anything other than your flying style. You're not at WOT all the time constantly with a stick jabbed over pulling a lot of Mah from your batts with your swervos screaming for mercy! Now if you flew like that and some folks do this day in age, then you might be in trouble trying to get more than 3-4 flights out of the batts. But since you don't fly like that and won't be pulling as much from your batts you should be fine.



Sensitive much??? :mrgreen:


Besides me flying Biplanes owned by you doesn't have the best record.....
