Know the estimated time of flight with the simulator

Hello, please can I use the simulator to know the estimated amount of time a determined survey could take ?

When you design a mission it gives you a estimate. This is a very loose estimate due to multi-batteries, wind, etc.

I generally use this formula, if it says 60 mins then I know it’s going to be 3 batteries with 5 mins between flights, this allows the drone to fly back for the battery swap and then back to where it left off. So a 60 minute estimated mission is closer to 75 minutes once it’s all done.

Wind will cause the drone to use more batteries than you expect so it could add a extra battery, or a extra 25 mins or so.

This is a better way to figure out times. After hundreds of flights you begin to learn how long it takes at what altitude.
