So, my batteries remain fully charged for probably 9-months out of the year. I am not going to argue that this is the right procedure but you asked how I do it. Most of the other guys in our club seem to follow a similar procedure. At the price of the batteries that I buy, replacing one every two or three seasons is not a big deal.
Same here. I never know when I'll have a chance to fly so I like to be ready at a moments notice. Most of my batteries are fully charged all the time. I'm more worried about a missed opportunity to fly than loosing a bit of battery life or performance. Life is short.
