I saw an option for "regenerative" while scrolling through the settings. Is that what you spoke of earlier concerning slaving an additional power soak?

Thanks for your post. I was advised that my charger has a 20 watt capacity for discharge. 6S would eat that up 3x as quickly as 2S would. It makes sense now.
You were more explanatory.

About Lipo Chargers

Hi All,
As far as discharging, I realize most chargers won't apply much current to discharge a lipo. In fact, when I'm discharging a 3200mah 6S, it will only go to 0.8 amps. My question is then,...

Lipo Containers

I was looking at a portable metal safe box to store/carry my lipos. It had better dimensions for what I needed and looked better than an ammo box .

Ok, thanks. Fortunately, it should be a short term solution until I upgrade the EDF. I will also upgrade the ESC from the start to handle the 14S.

Question About 12S & 14S

Is it ok to run a 12S EDF/ESC system on 14S if I keep the current, wattage and heat in spec?
What I plan to do is run the 12S system with 14S lipos on a watt/amp meter and raise the...

Yes, I kind of though that it would unload and get a forced air induction at speed. I'd rather have the cover on the cheater hole for 2 reasons.

Ok, I just had the opportunity to do an A/B check with and without the cheater hole. It's a close race. Without the cheater hole, it peaked out at 3.85lbs of thrust.
With it, it peaked at 4.2lbs....

Unfortunately, this hole is right on the duct work so I'll have to keep the scoop external, much like the pic I attached.

If you get a chance, look at my other post concerning the F-16 cheater hole and see what you think.

Reverse Thrust Braking?

Has anyone done this with an EDF? Wouldn't it be more practical than mechanical brakes? It would seem pretty easy to electronically reverse the motor wires to create this. I know the tubing isn't...
