Default Leave Lipo's fully charged?

Should Lipo's be left fully charged for a couple of days, (in a safe place of course) Or should they be flown prior to sitting them for a couple of days?



Thanks in advance

Thunder Power recommends 3.8v/cell, tanic uses 3.9v.

If it is only going to be a couple of days, I would not worry about them being fully charged. It is when they are stored over along period of time that you must consider discharging them.

Charge them a few hours before you fly.
