Given the amount of crashes we have with mini quad and racing drones, we ought to do more to protect LiPo battery from physical damage. In this tutorial I will show you the different ways of adding extra protection to your LiPo batteries.
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.
Today we are testing the Fusion 4S 1500mAh LiPo battery from DemonRC. It’s labelled 666C which is joke as it’s the devil’s number. This is funny but it doesn’t tell us what to expect though so it would be interesting to find out how it performs.
In this review, I tested some popular 6S LiPo batteries for racing drones and mini quads, comparing their performance including capacity, discharge rate, and internal resistance.
4S LiPo is currently the standard battery cell count for FPV mini quads and racing drones. As we are all continuously striving for more performance in our quadcopters, 6S setups might be a better option, or not?
We will have a look at the new BattGo Technology which could be useful for LiPo batteries safety. It will also help you keep track of the battery’s internal resistance, status and other info, and it tells the charger how they like to be handled.
I will show you how to build a DIY LiPo Battery discharger easily with 12V halogen light bulbs. It’s capable of discharging 2S, 3S, 4S, 5S and 6S LiPo batteries.
Vcanz-Power recently sent us their latest 4S LiPo batteries – 1350mah 75C and 95C, and 1550mah 75C. In this review we will test them on a mini quad and compare their performance to some well known brands in the market.
Thanks to Acehe for sending us their latest LiPo batteries – the Formula 4S 95C 1300mAh and 1500mAh for testing. In this review we will put them on a mini quad and see how they perform.
I have been using the Dronelab 50C 4S batteries, and I really like them. Recently they released a new version which is branded 75C and I am going to test it see how they perform compared to the old drone lab.
