Default Charging Question ?

I always recharge the flight pack stuff overnight before going to the field. Only exception I make, if I charged it last night and couldn't fly today, I MIGHT only charge it for an hour before going to the field tomorrow.

FYI, NiCD battery packs generally lose 3 to 5% of they're charge every 24 hours. It's not worth your plane NOT to charge them.

12 volt battery, once per month if not used often, otherwise it depends on use.

Glow plug igniter. A few hours before each trip to the field, depending on use.
