Batteries Charge
I would like to know how long do the lipos stay charged. I was going to fly but the weather has been bad for a week.
I don't know if i need to charge them again before I fly.
Thanks Newbie

What type of charger do you have? The lipos will stay charged for quite a long time fully charged. You DON'T want to keep them fully charged for too long as it will reduce the life of the lipo. Most people will keep them charged at 60% when there not flying them as well as keeping them out of the heat. Charge them up before you fly.

A day or two shouldn't matter, but don't keep them fully charged for a week.

Hi Ausable, you could go one to two months without your lips losing charge. If you are not going to fly for longer than this then you should bring them down to 50%. Good luck on your flying.Team Synergy, Rail blades, Team Scorpion, V-Team

Another way to check your batt pack is with a volt meter. any voltage over 4.15 per cell and you're 90% or better charged.

In the middle of our main flying season I normally get home from the field and fully charge all my lipos so I am ready for the next time I go out. If the weather looks bad or I know I won't be flying for more than a week, I put them on "storage" charge. Then when I know I am flying I charge them to 100% and fly. It doesn't take that long to do.It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
