A short low ceiling cold winter day freestyle flight with my Xplorer X3 F5J. Turbo'd the fuse with Neu 1110 1Y & Revolectrix 2200 3S battery pack. Power is a good thing!
Here is the preview trailer from my new training video the Electric Sailplane Clinic 3 which is now available. At the end of the trailer is a short preview from the video where I talk about LiPO internal resistance, how to measure it, and how IR determines what the true C discharge rating of a pack is. IR determines how well the pack will deliver its energy to your motor. The C ratings printed on packs are highly over-rated and IR measurements reveal the true capability of the battery. Is my pack big enough? Why did it puff? Why am I getting poor motor performance with this pack? Click here to order the Download for only $22.95, or click here for the DVD edition for $24.95.
