Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Lipo warning alarm

Hi guys quick question

Running 3S 500 mah lipo';s what should my lipo warning alarm be set at?

I know you should leave 25-30% in. But what voltage do I set my alarm to??  :hmm:

I should be roughly putting 3500 - 4000 mah back in correct?

Generally you should not allow your LiPo to discharge to less than 3.0v per cell. So for a 3S the overall pack voltage should not be less than 9v. 

There is a good PDF on LiPo do and don';t here http://www.4-max.co.uk/pdf/dos-and-donts-lipo.pdf

Or this --> http://www.rchelicopterfun.com/rc-lipo-batteries.html

I set my LiPo warning alarm to 3.4v so that it allows me sufficient time to land - generally that is less than 30 seconds.  But then I';m also running a timer of 6 minutes which all my LiPo give me in excess of.

Aircraft: miniMax Hex, DJI 550 (clone) TBS Disco, 450 Firefly, 250 Pro, ZMR250, Hubsan X4, Bixler 2


If your LiPo isn';t recovering to at least 3.7v per cell within a minute of landing, you';ve running it too low. I run with the alarm at 3.5V.
