Only 5 flights? WTF? Fly it until it doesn't fly anymore. What the hell is wrong with NASA?
The helicopter is a secondary mission -- they've delayed the rover's primary science mission for nearly a month to accommodate the helicopter tests. Time to get on with the main job. And what does flying more than five times actually accomplish? By flight five, they'll have learned pretty much everything Ingenuity has to tell them about flight on Mars.
