How long are the flights you get? I only need to take one with my GWS
Beaver - the 1100mAh Li-po gives me over 30 mins and the 2200 goes for so
long I've always run out of light or time before it's run out of power.
It's good to have 2 batteries just because then I don't have to recharge
every day. They take about 1 and 2 hours respectively to charge.
You take as many as you need to do the flying you can fit in. Depending
on how easy/safe they are to recharge you may not need others at home on
I'm new to this and most things Iv'e read about most electric planes is that
most flights only last for just a few minutes or so, so I was thinking 4
packs would ensure me atleast 15 mins of uninterrupted flight time.
I think it depens on the plane your flying and what battery and motor you
On my aerobird challenger we got about 20 minutes out of one battery,
granted some of that time, but definately not the majority wa spent gliding.
On my Slowstick I get about 15 minutes out of one 730mah battery pack.
So in my circumstances I would like to have about 3 packs for the slowstick,
and maybe 2 for the aerobird.
But it really depends, on how much you want to fly, and how fast your plane
eats your batteries.
I usualy bring 6 packs and 2 planes with me, I use a variable rate due
I usualy charge everything at home the night before, then just pea
them at the field. I get 10 ta 15 out of each one, and can charge
every 30-45 minutes or so. I can usualy fly about 10 times before
have to wait for a pack.
"I make things do what I want them to, The hell with what they ar
designed to do.

I've heard you need one flying, one cooling down and one charging. However,
it depends on the type of battery, its charge rate, how agressively you fly,
and a number of other things.
