What is the second best way (first being flying) to discharge lipos? It seems all to often lately that after charinging up for the field we get multiple days of poor weather. I currently use my Hyperion EOSO606i but it takes way too long. Any ideas?

Leave them charged for a week or two. Everytime you charge and discharge that's one more cycle you've used up on that pack.

What is the longest that a lipo can stay fully charged without damaging it?

I don't think anyone really knows.

Nominal voltage is best for long term storage but I've left them charged for weeks with no problem.

Have to disagree slightly. If by discharging you are using storage mode via your charger, this wouldn't be the same on the lipo as flying the pack out. Less wear on the lipo IMO.

The OP never stated were he was discharging his packs to. That's way I stated my reply as I did.
