How long should I leave newly hatched chicks in an LG 9300 incubator? With high humidity, it doesn't seem possible for them to be able to dry..

That is a personal decision. Some leave them in until the hatch is done, some until they are dry, (which you are right. If you are using higher humidity, that's not going to happen.) And then there's people like me that take them out as they hatch and become active. IF your incubator humidity is up and it recovers quickly, there is no reason not to take them out when you are comfortable doing so.
