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.
