Hey guys,
If I'm using a spektrum flight log, there is no need for a volt watch right?

Can you use the Volt Watch 2 on a flightpower 2S 4340 lipo? It only has 4.8 and 6.0 on the switch.

Thanks for any feed back
Chris

You don't need a Volt Watch. Best way to test a Rx pack is with a load tester.

Yep, a DVM that puts a load on the battery is best.

using a load tester is best but sometimes i get lazy and just do a few quick pitch pumps on the bench while watching how low the voltage goes in real time on my spektrum flight log. the load with this method is of course system dependent and also dependent on how fast you move the sticks but in my case it seems to be around 2A. your mileage may vary.

If you are using a SC Reactor your flight log is only going to read 5.4 volts because that's all the receiver gets. I use load tester (8 ball) to check my battery.
