I built several LiPo dischargers in the past but all are designed to fully discharge batteries, and none have the ability to stop at a certain voltage. The URUAV LiPo Killer is a cheap and smart battery discharger which can do that.
Parallel charging allows you to charge multiple LiPo batteries simultaneously using a single charger. Parallel charging is an effective way to quickly charge the large amount of LiPo’s that mini quad pilots use. When you do it properly, it’s quite safe.
The Ummagrip Universal Super Sticky Battery Pad is designed for holding the LiPo on a mini quad, so it doesn’t slide out or move during flight. I have been using it for over 6 months and I’d like to share my experience with it.
The recommended LiPo batteries on this page have been tested and you won’t be disappointed by the performance and value. Due to the difficulties in shipping LiPo batteries thesedays, price and availability are the most important considerations in my opinion. Getting them locally can usually save you a great deal of money.
The location of the battery affects the performance and handling of your mini quad. The LiPo battery itself is a mass, in fact it’s so heavy it can change the centre of gravity. In this article we will discuss the benefits and downsides of mounting the LiPo on top and bottom of the frame.
Lipo batteries degrade over time, sometimes this degradation results in dead cells. It seems to be a waste to throw the whole pack away because other cells might still be working. In this post we will show you how to make a working LiPo by combining the good cells from multiple damaged/defective batteries.
The Fatshark battery case is a convenient holder for 18650 cells. However it’s not designed for charging, and you have to take the 18650 batteries out of the case to charge them. It’s quite annoying so I decided to modify the case so that I can plug it straight into the charger for charging.
Before throwing away damaged or old LiPo batteries, you should first drain them completely until there is no charge left. In this article I will show you how to build a battery discharger using high power resistors.
I tested some high KV motors with 6S and the result is pretty interesting. Generally it’s recommended to use low KV motors around 1700KV for 6S and 5″ propellers. But when I first heard the idea of using high KV motors on 6S I was a bit skeptical so I decided to find out for myself :)
Charging LiPo batteries in the field is an excellent way to let you fly for longer. I will share my field charging solution which I believe is better than buying more LiPo batteries in many aspects.
