I would like to ask if low C count lipos are okay just for hovering practice or maybe even the aerobatic portions of F3C?

I've come across some good deals locally on 20C 6s lipos and was wondering if the C count might be too low to be worth my while.

What would be an acceptable C count for lipos for F3C?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

You did not say your heli size and the capacity of your batteries.

My SYE12 755, for example, carries 12S 5200mAH batteries, maximum current do not exceed 100A. Hovering is around ~30A. If my batteries are 20C, then it is marginal for aerobatics but more than enough for hovering practice.

Chris, I plan on converting a Logo 700 (using Scott Grey F3C blades) into a practice machine before using a dedicated F3C machine for practice. The 20c batteries I was looking at are 5000mah.

I'm at my initial steps into F3C but from what I've learned from others it's better to use at least 40-50c batteries.

See you at the HKMEC soon! We have a common friend Jason C. who helped me get membership into the club. Hope to learn much from you too!

First, a warm welcome to you into the club.

Second, there is an area in the club marked for F3C flying so I believe you will enjoy it if you like F3C stuff.

Third, we share with each other in terms of all aspects of helicopter flying so we, including myself, basically learn from each other.

BTW, When will you be there?
