none. you can;t. i said sitting at 3.0v no load. means you can;t go down any further.
My guess would be 0.05C. What use would that be to us? That's why a no load voltage of 3.7V after flying is the goal. That's what a flyer will usually see operating at reasonable C-rates and leaving 20% in the tank.
3V no load is not a good number to live by IMO.
.....for flying yes you are right. i'm talking about no load and standard operation range of lithium. 3.0 - 4.2; you are talking about the useful operation of lithium under flight load which yes of course is heavy we all know.............but you did not define that in your original comment thus i make the clarifications here
