Started hovering "high" this evening. Went up to approximately 20 to 30 feet and played around with a little forward flight. It is definately a lot harder to figure out the helicopter's orientation the further away it is. I had a couple of close calls where I couldn't tell whether it was flying away from me or towards me.

The pack lasted about 10 minutes and this time it was only warm.

Curious, need more data, found this gadget to get:

A micro data logger, only 17 grams. Records current used in amps and volts, can be set to record rpm or temperatures as well. Downloads to a PC or can be set to display realtime data.

Very cool.
