Charge Rate for Blade 350 QX3 and Yuneex Q500

I'm trying to figure out the maximum charge rate for both of these copters.

The Blade 350QX3 battery (Eflite 3S 3AH) doesn't say anything but I've seen pics of Blade 450 helis which use very similar batteries say max charge rate is 3C.

The Yuneec says don't charge above 1C but that doesn't seem right. Is that just a precaution. I thought only the tiny 1S batteries for the nano type quads couldn't be charged more than 1C

the Yuneec and Chroma both uses the same kind of battery and it''s labeled 10C ... charging it at 2C won't hurt based on early test from the battery guru of lipos that was made 10 years ago which are 10c to 15c... also remembered, yuneec and chroma battery was relabeled lately as 6300mah not the 52xxmah

on the blade 350qx battery, you can charge them at more than 3c as long it is not overheating and the damage (shortness of life) is very minimal... but then 3c is good charging time already, going to 4c to 5c to save extra mins., doesn't really save me extra time though...

i usually charge mine at 2c to 3c ...
