Thanks guys. Probably will open 3 of the 6 to start with as virtually no intakes or exits in fuselage which is probably not a good situation. Will start with a short flight and see how hot the ESC...

Fuselage Cooling Vents

Haven't found a lot on this topic so far. Just completed GP Avistar Elite ARF electric version except for cutting out the 6 -- 3 1/2" X 3/4" vent holes noted in manual. No comment on why, though...

Looks like using 3s 5000 mAh lipo's might be a good solution -- simple and re-purposing. For me, field charging 1800's and 2200's with 50W and 80W chargers shouldn't be an issue. At a 2C (2.2 amps)...

Agree Nigel, redundancy makes lots of sense. Just made an simple t-plug adapter that will connect my 3s 5000 mAh lipo's to my charger. Have 2 that I do not use in flying so those will provide at...

Solentlife and Jetplaneflyer -- great points. May very well be for my flying to get 3 or 4 more batteries (and another charger) and enjoy 8 or 9 flights and not worry about field charging, though...

Thank you all for the replies. Sounds like a car battery will handle my needs for now. When I have used my vehicle battery but not best option. Do use a balance charger and most lipo's are 1800 and...

Field Charging 3s lipos

Many of the threads and posts seem to be targeted to larger lipo's and all day flying. My needs (and I believe those of many other Electric RCer's) are more modest with planes under 4#, using 3s (and...

Understand your 1 year comment, but believe timeframe is moot in this case. My Gens Aces were purchased a month earlier and are in great shape. They are used most of the time -- DBY was a trial of...

Have a 3S 2200mAh LIPO purchased last summer that has been used only a few times and properly stored at 3.8v in refrig, etc. All 3 cells balance charge to 4.19v but when installed in my Sensei the...
