I have a new S107G coming while I wait for a part for my current one.  Until I read this forum I didn't know you had to let the battery cool down.  To make sure I look after my new S107G can you tell me if I have got this right

 

1) Take helicopter out of package and charge fully.

2) Let the battery cool down for 15 minutes before using the helicopter.

3) Use the helicopter.  Never let the battery fully drain.

4) Let the battery cool down for 15 minutes before charging the helicopter again.

Yes i'd say thats about right. Lipo batterys can be dangerous too while charging so never leave them while charging them and if you do make sure nothing flamable is close to them.

Take a look at this link to see  what can happen

 

not trying to scare anyone but better safe than soory right Wink

Good video, but dont get scared, it will not happen if you use a timer like I do to remind you that they are on charge, if you use the USB port there is an overload cut out.  Wink

True dat. I used to be a truck driver, and a lot of times when a southerner heard my northern Illinois accent (I can see Wisconsin from my house) they would ask if I was Canadian.

It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. I made it about 7 years before I decided that it was a lifestyle for which I was not cut out. :p

What do you do now? I really don't know what I want to do.. Phlebotomy, x-ray tech, airliner pilot, helicopter mechanic, helicopter pilot, chef, restauranteer.. That's all that appeals to me..

Great idea on the timer thing Nova! Laugh I'm going to start putting my cell phone alarm to better use, and set it to remind me I'm charging, so I don't feel anxious about leavig the room while it is charging! Cool

Supernova, this is totally random. But where you part of the royal military at one time? And what is your profile picture a picture of?

I've tried to speed up the process and put my copter in the freezer for a few minutes for a cool down while I fly copter #2.

So far my wife hasn't tried to thaw it and cook it.   I think she's tempted though.

Anyone out there using a Triton or similar peak detecting charger ?  Just curious how many milliamps to charge these 150mah Lipo's at. How many ma do the USB charge cables give em ?  My rate chart starts at 600ma Lipo's. Says 200ma for slow charge, and 400ma for fast charge. Im thinkin 100ma will have to do as 200ma might be a bit much. These are 1c batts, right ?  Any thoughts ? My first S107G should be here tomorrow.    Dennis
