lipos puffing question
My old tired Outrage 6S 5000 packs are starting to puff quite a bit. Still have a good amount of power to them though. Can you continue to fly packs that puff until the power isn't there anymore? Or is a best practice to stop using them? (fire risk, etc?)

Man thats outrageous. I would keep flying. Do they settle back down after a few hours? If so I would say your good.

Puff ?????????
Why do they puff, did we fly to long, are they too old or did we fly when it was too hot? Maybe we stored them and the day got too hot?

Any information would be great!

Thanks,

Jerry

My mate was flying his electric powered foamie aeroplane recently and half-way through the flight (by time) he suddenly lost power but glided in safely. On opening up the battery hatch the battery was very hot and well puffed up (3 cell, 2150mah) He managed to disconnect battery and laid aside to cool down. Question is, would you use a dodgy battery in an expensive heli or aeroplane??

You have a good point - the answer would be NO.

Heat is the great enemy of lipo's. The cooler you can keep your batteries in flight, the longer they will last. If you charge your batteries up ready for flight in the cool of your garage then take them in a hot car to the flying site then you may well arrive with a puffed up battery! Be careful, you may lose your battery and your car!!
