RE: 3's & 500 watts

You have 4amp hours. You will be demanding 45amps. 4/45= 0.0888889 of an hour. Multiply 0.089 by 60mins and you 0.089 hours is 5.3minutes. 5.3 minutes is 5mins and 20sec.

Given that you cannot use...

RE: What does this mean?

I would say not. Your power supply can supply 12vx1.5= 18watts. Call it 15 due to heat loss.

You are asking for 9.6v x3a= 28.8watts.

With 15watts charging a 9.6v battery you will only manage...

RE: Battery charging help lipo

Can you cycle the lipo with that charger? Alternatively use the lipo gently, take it down to say 3.5V then try balance charging. See if that is an easy fix"

RE: series or parrallel?

Not sure of the question. Connect the batteries so that the voltage x kv of motor equals approx 25-30k revs. I beleive selecting the best prop, balance and trim is more of an art.

RE: NiMH - Trickle

It is not a big problem but it is a problem. I believe it can accelertate the degregation of the pack. Also if you have a small pack the "trickle" charge might be relatively more than a trickle!
