Flight Times

I utilise electric launch these days, and my DX8 is programmed to allow a 30 second launch period after which I thermal till landing.  The 30 seconds gives a good launch (with both the Radian and Diamond) that equates to about the best standard bungee launch you'd hope to get.  In flat air a glide to land would be around 4 mins at best.  Flights over 5 min have encountered lift and 10+minutes I consider a good flight.  Here's a list of sample flights that made it over 10 mins:
