    Recycling Two Bad 3s Lipos

    I have two 3s 2200mAh lipos that have ended their life early. One has a cell that is puffed and appears non existent, and the other has a cell that discharged itself to 0v without use. The other two cells in each battery appear to be fine and stable. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to...

    FT Versa Wing Battery Question

    Hi everyone, I am looking at an FT Versa Wing as my first scratch build, and I am wondering if an E-flite 3200mAh 3S 11.1V 30C LiPo paired with Flite Test's Power Pack C in a pusher configuration would be too heavy? I am also wondering if covering the entire wing in packing tape would be too...

    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!

    Charging Multi Cell LiPo Batteries via USB

    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...

    LIPOS Gone Bad. Tips/Stories

    I have thought about doing this thread for a couple of days now. As I am still relatively new to this hobby, I am still learning. I want to talk about one of the more dangerous pieces of your RC tools, the lithium polymer battery. There are many treads talking about how to pick the right...

    MiniQuad Battery Findings

    So today some friends and I had a quad race down at our local RC club. Needless to say, I'm going to need more power to be competitive. So instead of flying my 5030 props, I'm going to give some 5040 and 5030 3 blade props a shot. But when I do this, my current consumption will go up. This in...

    Newbie Q: LiPo Charging/Discharging

    Hey FT! I've found myself playing the charge/discharge dance with my batteries recently. I'll charge a battery the night before on a forecast of low winds hoping I can fly after work. Without fail, I'll get home to 10+mph winds with gusts. Instead of discharging my batteries by flying, I'm...

    Replacing Old Lead-Acid/Pb Battery

    Hi all, I would first like to say that I understand that this question may be a bit off topic for a forum mainly based on fixed-wing and multirotor RC vehicles, but I thought that some of you veteran RC'ers out there might know what I can do. I found an old, most likely 1/16th scale RC car...

    Lipo Disposal, Storage, etc...

    What I would like to see is how flite test disposes of old, severely damaged, minor damaged, and simply demolished batteries. The internet has loads of stuff regarding salt water bath, discharge to '0' volts per cell, etc. What do you guys do for the battery that is (fill in the blank). Would...

    Charger compatibility

    I have 2 850mAh 3 cell batteries from LazerToyz for my FT swappables. Can these be charged with any LiPo charger, or do I have to buy a specific brand? I would like to use the LiPo charger I have from my Super Cub, but I'm not sure if you can safely charge between brands.

    80% Rule v.s. Voltage Cutoff

    I am still a bit of a newb to the hobby right now so I have came across one question regarding LiPo discharge. I have read all around that a healthy voltage to discharge a Lipo to is about 3.7v, nominal voltage (Not under load). So as a beginner, I have a battery alarm on my tricopter that...

The thing is, I followed the recommendations regarding the LiPo, ESCs, motors and props but I would...
