Default Lipo RX question?

Hey guys,

Anyone running lipo rx pack that you use on the weekend only? If so, are you doing a storage charge after you run, then charge up for the weekend when it gets close, like the night before?
I have always storage charged my heli lipos if they weren't going to be used within a few days.
What are you guys doing?
Thanks
Brian

I do exactly what you have mentioned.
store charge for the week then full charge the day/night before a race.
One thing I do do Is connect them and turn the servos for 5 or so mins Just to be extra safe and it dosent effect the run times at all.

I have had a LIFE Puff on me because I left a Full Charge in it so Now I do his method to all my Lipo rx Packs.

For lipos charge them to store mode or approx 80% capacity. I recently left a 4s in a car after running a long main and it lost a cell becaust it dropped below 3v which sucks because it was a thunderpower 65c race pack. Lipo is a lipo big or small treat tem right and they will perform. Abuse them andthey will blow.
