Flying in guns blazing (CRF/CSV) and flying out when it ends and turning around within the 5s downtime and 5k range is a superior tactic IMO.

Also most PVE enemies should die in a single pass outside of group activities.

Sorry for not abusing you. I'm sure somebody will come along and be a jerk.
Small quibble:

Flying backwards for too long drains power from all systems.

the drain doesn't kick in right away, and it is possible to do the couple seconds forward, couple seconds backward dance with no power drain.

No opinion on which is better, just that it is possible.
