Extending Battery Life

This isn't really geared towards RC flight, but is about Li-Pos in general.

Is it best to wait until your Li-Po is completely drained (but still within the voltage limits) before recharging, or...

You plug it in to your throttle channel which is #3 for mine, but yours may be different.

RE: Brushless motor AND servos with one LiPo battery???

Yes you can. The power coming to the receiver from the ESC will power the servos.

RE: LiPo chargers. What is the best?

Let me rephrase that. I feel like the charger is overcharging at least one of the cells in my pack. The pack isn't that old though, so I don't understand how the cells can be that out of balance so...

RE: Failsafe help

I think you can put it there or between any of your servos and the receiver. If you put the failsafe between the receiver and the esc, it will only work for the throttle.

RE: Soldering question

The bigger the soldering iron the better. You do not want to use a 40w iron because it will take too long to get the tab hot enough. When you gradually heat up the battery tab like that, you run...

RE: Fliton JJ H-A20-20L Mounting Question

If you could post pictures of your plane with the cowling off (so I can see the mounting location) I should be able to help you. I can't really tell anything from the pictures on the company website.

RE: Switch in the Battery leads of my ESC

You will have to have a pretty beefy switch to be able to handle the current that the lipo will be dishing out. Those kinds of switches aren't light, nor small. And even if you did get the correct...
