how longs a piece of string depends on conditions hight and various other conditions so no fixed distance last night grasscutter did 100 miles but he is 700 ft up in the hills with a clear view across the lancashire plains into wales so its no problem for him
if it anit broke dont fix it

from home,no lift + flat area,4 watts only,8 miles, but then how longs a piece of string may be better answer.
