Lipo Storage Voltage and Dead Battery

looks like the magic number is 3.75v per cell:

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

"Parkzone P-47 Thunderbolt Diamond Lite Wheel Mod"

Took the T-Bolt out for a test run to check the tracking of the Diamond Lite Wheels I’d installed a few days ago.

I only flew one flight as the tires tended to rub the strut leg causing it to pull pretty hard to the L or R. I was able to taxi around well enough though to where I felt I could take er up and land her without a major incident so that’s all I did.

Basically it needed a thin 2mm or so spacer to sit in-between the wheel hub and where the axle meets the strut to prevent the tire from coming too close to the strut allowing the tire to rub the strut… anyways, I did a revamp of the 2 ¾" Diamond Lite Wheels by Du-Bro (part #Du-Bro 275DL) http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=DUB275DL

Remember the set of various sized prop spacers we get with the APC props that we only use one or two of and have a dozen or so sets laying around? Well, those little spacers worked perfectly

I recut some 5/32” brass tubing (dbl checked it at LHS for size), this time a tad longer than before, cut it at 1-1/8” long. Using a drop or so of CA onto the axle, slide the 1-1/8” ‘axle extension’ on… hit it with some kicker. Then slid the APC prop spacer I took off on of the leftover sets, slid it all the way onto the axle, then slid the wheel on, attached the collar to the axle using a smidge of thread lock on the set screw as well as on the inside of the collar then using the Dremel I buffed the end to remove any burs.

Now there is the tiniest of space in-between the inside of the wheel hub and the prop spacer, like 1mm, maybe less, just enough to barely see the brass sleeve. The wheel has hardly any wiggle/wobble and spins quite freely now… no rub-a-dub-dub on the ol strut.

I might get to try it tomorrow as the weatherman promised good flying weather (like today’s)

Here’s the pics of what I did:
