p.4116 #1 · p.4116 #1 · Mustang Air to Air: The Sequel


Having flown r/c for decades and being among the first to pirate cell phone batteries for use in r/c... There have been only 4 things that cause a lipo to vent. A short, poor solder joints, over-amping, and allowing the batteries to drop below the lowest safe voltage. Anything else is user error. The most common is over amping followed by low voltage. I also caution with cheap cells. I only buy balanced and matched packs. I have a pack with 2500 cycles that is nearly 9 years old. Still going strong. Maintain them, keep them within spec, won't fail you for many cycles.

Also, my longest flight has been 2 hours 20 minutes. Routinely flew 10-20 minutes full throttle, also no issues. Stay in spec, know your gear, treat it well, you will be fine.

We seem to be smoking the LiPo batteries in theses r/c aircraft. Initially they told us that it was caused by flying the airplanes longer than six minutes. We now have a DX9 controller that keeps track of the length of our flight and we're still zapping the batteries, at 35 bucks a pop. Weird.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks. These are HobbyZone OEM and we charge them on a $150.00 high end LiPo charger according to spec. Chandler might have just flown this one too long.

Posting this one from last fall's visit from the Collings Foundation.

Tuesday is my last day of clinicals for STNA, then to take the state test for nurse aide.

Yup. When I would charge my LiPo's, I kept them in a pot with a lid that I held down with a sand bag. I would keep it in my fireplace while charging just in case. Treat them right, let them rest (seriously), and they will last a very long time.

Wow Glenn. You keep outdoing yourself, great job. I'm not sure which are my favorites. I think 1, 2, 4, and 6. You might consider cloning out that bright road at the nose of the microjet in Number 1.

Hats off, ladies and gentlemen: Glenn keeps raising the bar.

Interesting light, Glenn: between layers, or just a high cirrus deck?
