I would be interested to share what others are using and how they have their power systems set up and what they find does and doesn't work. .
I am using a 3300mAh 4S 35-75C Turnigy battery and I'm in the dark about what to expect from this considering it might even be to small for my X8 Quad (880kv motors 30amp ESC)I have done a number of 2 min flights and haven't really pushed them past this. But what happens if it is under powered during flight?
I ready just recently that for the health of the battery it should not be allowed to run below 80%.
See this interesting page on batteries http://www.rchelicopterfun.com/rc-lipo-batteries.html
I'm a bit confused on this. Does it mean its ok to draw 80% out of the battery and not below this or does it mean draw 20% out of the battery and leave 80%.
What voltage levels are others letting the battery drop before it is regarded as time to land?
