Keep in mind that I am a newbie and flying in a pretty tight area, I also have the throttle limited to 50%. I have the timer set for 7 minutes and the last two flights I landed and the pack showed over 13.5v. This is on 850 4S packs. As with my Phantom, I am sure as I get more accustomed to the performance that duration will fall. I went from 7.5 mins to 5 mins on the Phantom as I cot more comfortable with it.

Cheers,
Jim

You will ruin battery fast flying to 13.5V

I land when OSD shows 3.65V per cell.. After 2 min 14.83V. Also dont do punch in last minute. Never charge when its 0C. Never leave battery >3.9V charged.. charge same day you fly.

I have been flying LiPo’s from day one when the original Kokam 340 cells came out in the mid ‘90’s. As long as the resting voltage is 3.7 or above you are fine….I have always treated my cells this way and have always gotten good life and performance out of them including my packs they I flew in competitive F5B and F5J situations.

I have been flying to 3.5v which results in a resting voltage of around 3.85’ish volts.

Cheers,
Jim
