    In need of 4s 1300 lipo batteries (75c is preferable)

    I am 13 years old and I can't afford to buy any batteries I only have 2 and I would like to have more batteries to fly. It doesn't matter if they are really old and don't work as well as they used to, because flying time is still flying time. EDIT: My email is alotofcatz@gmail.com

    Hobbyking Graphene

    I assume some of you fine folks have seen them on the hobbyking daily, instagram, facebook, vision-from-above. Anyway, I have been flying the 1500 4s multistar and although they are good, they are damn heavy on my already heavy MXP230 so I went ahead and ordered 3 of the 1300 4s Graphene...

    Changing Batteries Without the Help of Human Hands

    I think it would be really significant and cool if a drone or rc plane could connect to new batteries and toss the old batteries without a person touching it. I want to see a drone pull a pony express and swap batteries on its own over a flying course. Of course I don't mean just installing an...

    Battery charging question

    Hi everyone, I am wondering if I can charge a 150mah lipo at a 100mah charge rate? The reason I am asking is my Hitec X1 MF 80-Watt AC/DC Charger only goes up in intervals of 100mah. Thanks!

    I'm looking for a way to charge a 2 cell LiPo via a USB port... I know there are USB chargers for single cell batteries, but I'm not sure if there are any multicell chargers (or if it's even possible). I'm looking for a cheap/easy way to charge the batteries on my quad while camping/hiking so...

    Charging

    My charger has options of charge AND balance charging. I know balance charging keeps the cells at nice, equal voltages, but is it a thing I should only use once in a while? Does it wear out the battery a bit faster?

    Difficulty with mounting batteries on the battery+GoPro tray

    I am building my new Electrohub Spider Quad, but I ran into an issue, I can't mount my Turnigy 4s LiPo. The battery is just too big for the tray, and it hits the nuts that connect the tray to the frame. I can strap the battery to the bottom of the tray, but then the landing gear aren't long...
