TWO questions, How long can I leave a battery fully charged before it does "damage" to the batt.

and lets say i fly my heli one pack after the next for 10 packs stright. will that cause damage to my heli? or can I fly my heli all day long with as many packs I can get?

1) Lipo packs should be brought to half charge is stored for more than a week, but i wont necessarily hurt it if you forget to do this. Just make sure they are balanced.

2) If you have 10 packs, you must be Rollin in dough, or flying inexpensive packs, either way, i dont care. You should give the heli a rest of at least 2 min between flights to let the motor, esc, and often the tail servo, cool off. If you live in colder climate areas, this time can be shortened. But summer anywhere is hot enough to require this cool down.

Agreed... more then anything let your nerves calm down and it will give the motor and esc time to cool a bit.

charging when the packs come down hasn't ever been correlated with less cycle life. as long as they come down reasonably cool, (140 F or less) than they will actually cool as your charging them at 1-2C
