Default Cycling my RX pack for my 8th scale....

Hey, i got a 1200mah RX pack that hasnt been used in a while, Prolly needs a good cycling. Going racing 8th scales this weekend. Charge it at 1 amp, but discharge it at what amps? 5 amps or so?

like a regular GP batter, charge at 6 amps, discharge at 30 amps. so thats 5 times teh charge rate so 5 amps on the RC pack?

I have teh Reedy Quasar Pro

I think 2 or 3. I can't remember what my pulsar manual says, but I think it is 1 or 2 amps.

I just cycled mine for my Drake using my GFX.
I charged at 1 and discharged at 3.5 and it worked well, the battery got warm but nowhere near hot.

discharge at the same rate your servos/receiver drains your 1200's at. a 1200pack last about an hour on the track so drain at 1.2amp. let it rest for 30minutes and charge again.

when i stop using my RX pack for about a month i lose about 500mah run time from my 2500's, cycle a few times it gets most of it back
