when I see fancy graphs in your threads explaining battery performance, how???


How or what are you guys using to measure your amperage draw through time etc... and making those graphs. Seems like a good way to compare how packs are performing, and I assume you could verify the C rating of a pack I buy is actually performing on par with rating? Looks cool too, I wanna know how to do it
thx

Probably many of the graphs you see are produced by the West Mountain Radio CBA.

Some are the result of in flight data logging. One such unit is from Eagle Tree; there is another logger commonly in use, but for the life of me I can't think of it. Someone will.

BNB Products sells a Digital Power Recorder. This unit installs in your plane and records power parameters (voltage, current, watts, temperature, and motor RPM) during flight.
