I Have a 450 EXI trex clone. Light flying still learning. I use one 2500mah and two 2200mah 11.1v 20C batteries. Lately I have had some time off and have been able to fly a lot. I fly the three batteries back to back in the morning. and recharge them through the day as I can and go for another flight late in the afternoon. I always start charging with the first battery that was flown to avoid any heat issues.

Can the rapid frequency of charging Lipos cause any problems?

As you long as you let the battery have a 'cool' period, you can charge as many time as you want. Charging the battery right after a flight is bad.

The first one that I charge when I get home is cooled to normal temp and has had a least an hour since it was used.

I'd say wait 15-20 minute's, plenty of time for a 3S lipo to cool.
