7.0 on the yellow lead on a 1 amp load. Yes, this OK to do I talked to Duralite about it. There is a .1 of a volt diff between the black and yellow.

With Lithium Ion/Polymer batteries the real nice safe voltage is 3.3V per cell, so 6.6V under load would be the ideal stopping point. Seems Duralite and other Li Ion companies bumped it up a little to 7.0V (either because some people check their voltage without a 1amp load, or for the extra safety margin).

At 6.99 or 6.9 volts, it just depends how much juice your helicopter is draining per flight. On my set up with a 4800 Fromeco pack, at 6.99 I would be alright for another flight as I only use about .1-.2 volts per flight, however that is all depending on your pack size and heli current draw.

Was the ???? not other packs, this ideal for the averg flyer. They keep it simple. STOP FLYING WHEN YOU SEE THIS VOLTAGE at 6.9. What ever you fly. It's youre machine, you take the chance pushing it. The answer is there. Thats why they say monitor EVERY flight.

Not beeing an A$$ sorry if I was

well i think he was asking because hes not sure if when they said 6.9 they meant 6.90 or 6.99. i had this problem at first myself, and 2 things occured to me, .1 = .10 its an assumed zero for tenths, and if they meant 6.99 they would have wrote 6.99.

if that wasnt why he asked, then i dunno and i apologize for assuming.
