You can leave it charged. If you leave it charged it will slightly decrease the capacity but nothing to be worried about. Espically if only for a few days.

i say just drive it around in the house


You can discharge if you wanted to, it doesn't hurt to cycle a battery. If you plan on using it tomorrow I'd just store it

Just put it in the car and drive around the house for about 5 mins to use up some of the juice.

I heard its not so good to store Li-Po fully charged. 90% charge is Ok, not 100%...
