Default Battery Terminology

Hi Guys,
I'm new to the world of electric planes. Where is the best place to learn the terminology/ size/ power of lipo batteries.
Thanks, Dil Brandow

Good deal. Thanks for the info. We picked up 2 Aircore planes at Christmas and then another foam P47 with about a 44" wing that uses 3s batteries. My boy is 11 and he's getting a lot more air time with the easy electrics than with our Nitro planes so it's working out really well. Thanks again, Dil

Wow, just noticed you are in Collinsville. I am in Claremore even though my profile shows Tulsa. I am assuming you fly at home, or in the general area. If you are interested, when the weather gets better, you are welcome to visit our field sometime. I fly at American Turf Flyers east of Tulsa. We have lots of electric guys, glow, gas and jets as well.

Cool. It's a small world huh. I fly at the Skyblazers field up in Collinsville off of 146st N. My address is Collinsville but I live right off of Hwy 20/ 116st N about 2 miles west of Keatonville hill. We'll have to come check it out sometime.

Some basics info about LiPo battery: 3.7V(work range:3.0-4.2V), the capacity have a large range from 300mAh to 2000mAh. Storage it in a dry and cool place 14 temperature will be better with 40% of the capacity.
