Is flying continuously at max speed ok?

    If I've got a planned route in mind I often find myself flying it at max speed unless there's a turn or I'm landing.

    Works fine - but will this wear out the motors too quickly?

    Or does it really not matter?

    Managed 11km route in just over 16 and a half minutes the other day - a rare windless day!

    I do. It's what it's made for. The battery will drain faster.
