Battery Cool Down, (A Must)

I'm down to a 3-4 minute flying time cause of poor cooling down BEFORE and AFTER charging habits. But now I know cause of this site and Supernova. Looking into that 200 mah battery upgrade...

Thanks guys.

Yeah, you need to let em cool down 5-15 minutes (your preference, but they're about cool to the touch, i.e. not warmer than room temp, in about 3 minutes, and should cool some more to cool the core down.) both before and after flight/charges. You should also periodically put a "sleep" charge on them when you're not flying them very often. (I need to do that one of these days before mine die)

 

As per the 200mah battery, look around in the back pages of the forum and somewhere is a topic I need to bump about what batteries work best. I forget who did it, but they put in many, many hours of work to test what batteries gave the best flight time before getting too heavy to have as much flight time or enough lift to get airborn. (I think that topic should be found and moved to the mod/repair section of the forum for general reference)

I don't know why, but I can't seem to find the post I was thinking of. I know it's by JMBishop because I thought of it on a different battery one where a guy was doing about the same thing. Might try google's search engine later. No time now, though.

 

EDIT: WOW! That was QUICK! Found it in 2 seconds with google because it was in the introduce yourself section.

No prob. At least I still have a little bit of a niche here. Not as much for me to do here lately, mostly no mechanical failures, and a lot of electrical stuff that I don't care to get into. I'll leave that side to the electrical engineers at school and Raptor.
