How many flights do you get on a full charge before you feel you need to re-charge it?

And also, how long does yours take to charge?

You should be able to fly 10+ times before recharging the remote controller. Plan for a couple of hours for a full recharge.

This thing needs to be charged?

Jokes aside, it lasts several flights and I don't know how long it takes to charge as I do it overnight (it shuts off on its own)

After 20 flights (10 to 20 minutes + warming + checks) and a lot of sim I was at 50% of RC battery
Agreed... I've had about that many and haven't charged it yet...

On a related note... I turned my controller off today during flight to check the RTH feature.... worked flawlessly... (Giant, open farm field, trackimo on... about 2k ft away). Little nervous but worked out as expected.

I just did 30 flights before I needed to charge (30% on the controller). Took awhile to charge, a couple hours.
