Put a voltage and current sensor on the telemetry! Use as a gas guage.
Looking good. Getting ready to drop X8 from balloon and control with joystick. I use 433mhz radios. Much longer range.

Outstanding Trent. UAV across the US has a pioneer ring to it. Great.

Yes, the Li-Io will serve you well.  Nearly 50% more duration.

If you can afford it, buy a battery welder when you make yours or I think I saw someone on e-bay that will do the welding for you.  Panasonic does make the best one.  You can solder, but I'm not good enough to trust my skill.  There is a vent that might release if it gets too hot.  

Please keep me in touch with your build.  lt sounds exciting.
