=plane rack to use in hangar or haul in vehicle=
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...8&postcount=11

heres a few pics...

holds ParkZone 4 birds originally but after I built it I decided to add a 5th position on the top left end so that while at the airfield if a guy needed a bench or place to hold a 5th bird, it would do it...

once the rack is in the back of the Burb, if I recall, the 5th position will only allow for something small like the PZ P-51, the smallest of my fleet... and even then I'm not sure I'd stuff it so tightly whilst in the Burb, but it might work. My thinking behind the extra position was to be more of a rest, bench type deal when out of the car...

I figure 4 ParkZone birds and an FMS T-28 on the tail end and an FMS P-51 setting on the bench seat behind the driver is plenty

I have used bungies to run over/around the cowls to keep em from bouncing around if I'm on dirt roads, but on asphalt, no need...

Lipo Storage Voltage and Dead Battery
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1074181


looks like the magic number is 3.75v per cell:

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...ostcount=25295


LiPO voltage (lowest/storage/full)

3.75v x cells --> lowest
3.8v x cells --> storage
4.20v x cells --> full


1s = 3.75v (lowest)
(3.8v storage)
(4.20v full)

2s = 7.50v (lowest)
(7.6v storage)
(8.40v full)

3s = 11.25v (lowest)
(11.4v storage)
(12.60v full)

4s = 15.00v (lowest)
(15.2v storage)
(16.80v full)

5s = 18.75v (lowest)
(19.0v storage)
(21.00v full)

6s = 22.50v (lowest)
(22.8v storage)
(25.2v full)

using the example of fully charging a 3S lipo, it should\will read 12.60v when full... then the lowest voltage to fly that same bat down to is 11.25v
