Thinking Safe

by Tony Breyen   November 17, 2015

Well now another season has come and gone. I hope you got threw the season without any accidents or bad mishaps. There is still some days left flying but most of us maybe consider getting batteries in storage mode for a lot of planes the we don't fly as much this winter. When lipo batteries first came out there was all kinds of ideas and stories. Now many good articles say the same thing about storage and discharge into a storage mode. Proper storage of the batteries is key because a fire hazard. This is something we should all pay close attention to. For myself half my fleet is electric and I own probably over 40 batteries. I personally have all my batteries in storage mode unless I'm going to go fly.
There still the old Gas and Nitro rigs that will need to be ran to get the fuel out of him and put in some after run oil.
