DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Just fixed a busted SMA connector on my TBS unity pigtail, it suffered badly in a recent crash and split in two, nothing a touch of the soldering iron couldn't fix  :D

Charge Rates

Newbie question:-

What rate do you charge your LiPo';s?

I realise that 1C is fine, but can you safely use 2C or even 3C.

F550, Naza-M GPS, Fatshark Attitudes, GoPro Hd2 & HD3 black, TBS EzOSD


Really depends on the brand how high you can go, but most of the quoted figures would be exaggerated I would think. Charging at more than 1c is also rumored to shorten the life of the packs.

I charge all mine at 1c unless I am in a real hurry, which isn';t very often at all, and then only 1.5 - 2c.


If you stick to 1C your lipos will last longer, but most decent quality ones will charge at 2C ok but don';t make a habit of it at this charge rate make sure you watch them all through - at some stage it might bite you in the ar5e if you don';t!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!
