    How far do you guys typically take the controller down to on charge. I find from a full charge I usually don't get below 60 per cent or so when I'm done flying. So, I normally recharge the controller along with the batteries. Am I charging it too often? Should I fly down further like 2 outings instead? My worry then would be needing more charge while running out, I just like starting with 100%. Your thoughts?

    I charge mine every time too, as you do.

    I've gone through 4 batteries on an outing. Then I charge when I get home. I should carry a spare, but just haven't had a need for it yet.

    I fly 4 batteries, then charge the controller along with the batteries.

    Mickeyboo is the man for info on this. He found the -16 would go longer than he thought it would during his Iceland endeavor.
