    Lipo capacity in drone spec.

    Many drone manufactures give exact capacity of a battery. For example: https://geprc.com/product/phantom-toothpick-freestyle-bnf-pnp/ https://geprc.com/product/geprc-smart-hd-toothpick-fpv/ Why this is important? "Don’t more than 4S 450mAh" - but if more what's going to happen? It is...

    Lipo Battery Short

    So I was flying the drone and the balance connector went through the rotors causing some of the leads to short. Seeing as I need a new set of underwear after the experience do I need to buy a new battery aswell? All the cells are at a good voltage - about 3.7V each so can I just resolder them...

    Batteries for dumbies

    Coming into the new world of FPV, I’m incredibly overwhelmed with the plethora of batteries available for all kinds of builds. What’s the difference between all of them and how would a noob be able to know which batteries are right for which quad like weight and size? Lipo, Livh, maH, v, c, 3s...

    Stone cold Lipo

    Hi all, Just bought three new 3s Lipos (Tattu 1550 11.1v 75C). When charging them they stay stone cold, is this normal? All my previous lipos at least got a bit warm, some were red hot after charging.

    Ins and outs of Lipo batteries

    Hey all, if you are like me and new or fairly new to racing quads, the batteries can be a bit confusing. On my fist one, the 250 Storm, I just bought a battery the seller suggested for a newbie quad racer, but I never really understand all the stuff written on the battery....mah, 25c-50c, 2cell...
