Long time no fly

Hello , maybe from 2 years I haven't touched the models All the stuff i have is just laying around in one room , so finally i want again to do some flying. I have forgotten some of the things i used to know but with every step i take i remember them easily. I know that the nimh battery of the TX is dead , i have 2 lipos that were used for very little period of time maybe 5-10 cycles , so they have to be good? The other ones, i will throw them away and buy some new one's , also for the TX.

So if you could help me what to do ( check) before going on the field again.All i have is electro planes(e-gliders most and 3d depron model)

If the lipos were stored with a full charge, it is likely that they are shot. If you have a way to check the voltage in each cell, do that. See if they will balance.

3.85 volt per cell is lipo storage voltage.
