Really? I didn't know about the full discharge. With my Lipo batteries for my helis, you should never let the voltage per cell drop too low. I do believe this is the same type battery. Is this personal preference or does the manual say to do this?There's a sort of collective memory of older rechargeables in camcorders which effectively had a memory, and you were supposed to always discharge before recharging.
Phantom batteries have a different chemistry similar to mobile phones and it doesn't matter.
However a full discharge is recommended every 20 times or so.
Personally I wouldn't bother unless you notice reduced run time.
Hello passive jay,
With all due respect,
Did you happen to read the manuals?
Check it out if not... Please.
You shouldn't be flying a $1k quad, without this basic knowledge, me thinks...
Bad things seem to happen to good people, more often... ;-)
Those new generation lipo have chemicals inside to prevent aging of the battery. Witch breaks in after a couple usesI flew 60 flights over 5 days nearly 6 hours flight time. I was charging my battery mo matter what level it was at after every single flight. It still charges to 100% and I see no difference in battery life what so ever
I mentioned in another thread about lipos that I don't belive in the break in process or what ever for these. I've ran lipos for years in extremely high performance RC cars over 100mph with constant on off throttle. Never had a issue.
With these forums everyone will have a different opinion so take it all into consideration and do what you think is best and what works good for you. My. .02
