Question
How long should I wait before recharging a lipo?

I have two TP1320 3S packs I take to the field in the mornings. Usually, between taking turns with other flyers and flight times, the wind starts picking up after using the two batteries.

Sometimes though, the wind stays calm and if I had recharged my first used lipo, I could fly again.

I usually use only 70 - 80% of their capacity and they barely get warm in my application.

Would it be o.k. to put it back on the charger after the flight? How long should I wait?

It sounds like you are treating your lipos very nice, sehr gut .
I routinely put mine right back on charge, as I never land with a hot pack.
Is Schertz (Scherz) in the area of texas that is heavily Deutch, Like around Neu Braunfels??

Thanks Pete.

Yes, in fact Schertz and New Braunfels city limits touch!

Sadly, not so much German heritage is visible anymore, other than the names and Wurstfest. It's even difficult to find german restaurants anymore. My favorite is actually in Ft. Worth, so I don't get to go there very often.

Don't hear much German being spoken around here anymore either.

Now you have me hungry for German food. Ich bin hungrig. I'll have to go to the Little Bavaria Restaurant tonight. Mmmm... blaukraut.

It depends. I prefer to wait until it cools off completely before recharging. Probably a hangover from my Ni(xx) days.
