I was using VLM and noticed a large discrepancy between the mission duration times in Litchi Hub and the VLM in Google Earth.
Investigating, I created a two waypoint mission of 1km (ok, 999m - to ensure it wasn’t 1.5km with the .5 not being displayed.), and speed of 30km (specified as cruise speed and waypoint speed so there could be no “interference”) … and simple maths says this should be 2 minutes.
But no, Litchi Hub reports this as 3 minutes!
Perhaps they have a built in “safety battery reserve”? No idea … but at least it’s overstating the times and not understating it.
Anyone else noticed this? Or read of a reason?
(Don’t worry! I’m not really going to beat up Southampton Airport at 30m with my MP! …. 3m would be far more fun! )
