Ah I see,    my head works OK in ft and thats how I have my drones setup.    Ive yet to find anyone else close to my flight record.  the closest was Reguzz at about 60 million feet.

You see, I don't have my hand in ft. I use m or km. Anyway, how many years have you been flying to get your total flight distance?

About 5 years now I guess,    my first few years were much slower.

I made a calculation that on average you fly 15.7km per day. I mostly aim for 3-5, if I have a lot of time then I do 10.

So far,  had a few more bird encounters today with the oyster catchers,   they seem to look and leave the drone now rather than hang about or chase it.   Coincidence?

The red tape may have done the trick.

Possibly,   3 walks a day weather permitting and 5 batteries throughout the day.   Im going to need a third set of new batteries soon as Im hitting the 200 charge limit again, and these haven't cracked so DJI wont send me new ones for free this time.

DJI batteries start to complain about being replaced when they hit 180 charges and then at 200 you have to deal with huge banner saying to replace the battery.

That's annoying. So if you use 4 batteries a day you will need to replace every 1.6 months.

No,  I land at 25% for safety so that extends the life a bit.

Its bad for the battery and if something happens I like to have reserve,  I was coming in to land once when 100 ramblers were coming past and I just left it to hover out of the way as they passed and then landed without having to move out of their way.

Good tip. When I land I am always in a rush because the battery is very low.
