Apparition!
« on: October 11, 2010, 01:44:49 PM »

Hi,

With my apparition, previously i have been using 2 nimh packs. Then i transfered to 1 11.1v lipo. I have a choice of 2 which i have. I have a 30c 4200mah or 25c 2000mah pack. The 2000mah pack is considerably smaller and lighter. I am only asking if i use the smaller pack(2000mah) 25c, because it draws a large amount of current, do you think the battery may explode?

Thanks

All depends on what esc and motor your running and the draw the motor & prop putting on esc and batts,the best thing to do is run for a minute then check the temps of the esc,motor and batts,but to be fair 3s is not really enough for this size hull,depending what you want out of it

Hi,

I have spoken to model power today, and they have advised me that my 2000mah lipo 25c will be sufficeient as a:-

25c pack=50amps

and i have a 40 amp fuse inline between battery and speed controller and also between speed controller and motor.

Please may you let me know your views?

Thanks
