Hi Cardiacdog,

Hello AKM,

The 989 should switch into the CV mode after the CC mode has completed. When the CC mode is finished the 989 will beep and display the word "Trickle". The charger is not actually...

That's great news! If it's a per cell voltage then enter in 3.00. But if it's for the voltage of the whole battery then multiply the number of cells by 3. So 2 cells would be 6 volts and 3 cells...

If you are going to run LiPo I would suggest replacing the ESC with one that has a voltage cut off. LiPo's cannot be revived and they're not cheap to replace on a constant basis. Although it's still...

Capacity in mAh's at the end of the charge. Voltage is important as well but the capacity is how long the battery will last. Sorry for the confusion. You mentioned that the battery is rated at 4000...
