Guys what temps are considered too hot to safely store a heli with a life rx pack on board? I have a 3 season porch area I am considering suspending a few of my birds from the ceiling in but I was concerned about the high temps during the day.

I keep mine in my shop winter and summer with temps from 20 degrees to 120 degrees here in Texas.

I love the smell of nitro in the morning.

Almost all chemical reactions are accelerated by heat. And it's a chemical reaction that decays your battery, however slow. Store at low temps when you have a choice. But not too too cold. Temp below spec will damage it.

However, don't pull from cold storage and blast into operation. Let it warm up. Operate at warmish temp (it is another chemical reaction during operation - which is why cars cold start badly).
