Question
Using of Li ion in Drones

I was thinking how would it be use a Li ion to power avionics of the UAV as they have High power/weight ratio? Would it be possible to use UBEC (that is used with Lipoly)
with Li ion??

LiPo is Lithium Ion Polymer. You can use other types of cells but LiPo provides the highest energy density available at the current required.

I use li-ion I've scavenged from power tool packs. They do work well for rcvr power packs. I use them for tired out nicads in weedwackers also. I do charge them on lipo setting in the charger. They will take a bit more abuse than lipos.
Ubec will work fine with them.
