Default Battery Question

Usually I charge my battteries; receiver, tx, glow plug and starter box the night before practice day. Is it alright if I charge the batteries like 3 or 4 days before using them. Will it lessen the charge if you use them after a few days? There are times when you're free doing nothing and you can prepare already while waiting for the weekend.

Yes it will lessen the charge.

Immediately after a battery has peaked it has maximum voltage. After a short time the voltage starts dropping down to a lower level.

Of course all of this hardly matters for nitro. You glow starter and starterbox dont require the extra voltage punch of a freshly carged battery. You could argue that it is worthwhile for your receiver battery so your servos have maximum punch and speed.
