There is nothing quick about making a LiPo pack. Determine the voltage and current required and then buy the appropriate pack already assembled.

It's not super dangerous to do it if you don't know what you are doing, but it is almost always expensive, very expensive if you lose your plane. If you are stupid, rash, and don't know what you are doing, it is possible to injure yourself trying to make packs.

Sounds super dangerous to me.
I have done this many times at home and have damaged many cells/packs doing such. Leave it to the experts that have the correct working environment and safeties in place to protect themselves.

Tell it you're tired of living with it and want it out of the house by tomorrow. It should start to pack right away!

Series will add voltage; parallel adds current, leaves voltage untouched.

it really is not as hard as they are all making it out to be. i am 16 just turned 17 and have built over half a dozen packs. all of them i use in my blade cx and fly in my house. yes thats right in my house. you need to do alot of research and thinking before you make a pack. this is not just soldiering two or three double a's together. but if you now what you are doing and what you need then you should be fine. keep in mind that the tabs are aluminum and need special flux to soldier them. i was lucky enough to get the same flux that the major manufacturers use. i got it at neat this year and it works great. so do you homework and take it slow. there is no rush especially when you can have a lipo shoot fire if you overcharge it. good luck.
