Initially, JPL engineers said that the success would be, if it takes off at all, and performs 5-6 flights. But as you can see, an ingenuity electrovetole is not just performed by its creators the task, but also proving reliability of his design, also showed a great margin of the strength of its components.

Well, while, how much can be judged by statements in NASA, it can be assumed that «ingenuity» will be left at some time for some long time, and all attention will be switched to the research work of the Perseverance Marshode.
