+1 for Ian,
I highly recommend a facemask to filter the air as you're working. The cutoff wheel will create a very fine powder as you cut the carbon fiber.

Good luck.

As noted, it was an EXAMPLE. The impedance may be .033 and .04. It depends on the individual battery. I picked whole numbers to make the math easier to read. The THEORY still applies.

Smile Ohm's Law

Amps = Volts / Ohms

EXAMPLE:

Fully charged, 5000mAh, 5s LiPo:

Amps = 21Volts (5s) / 1.1 Ohms (40C battery): 19.09 Amps

Amps = 21Volts (5s) / 1.3 Ohms (25C battery): 16.15 Amps
