Hi Ross

Having asked the same question of Matt some years ago I use the Rx socket on the standard battery voltage checker and ignore the % charge as the checker thinks it is a 4 cell NiMH.

If I need to check the voltage of my indoor packs I just use a multimeter, but to be honest I very rarely do so! I just charge up and go and I've never had a problem with my OptiPower 120's after several years of service :)

Hi guys,

What do you use to check the batteries on these models?  The Optipower 160mAh packs I've picked up are 2S packs without any balance lead... and all the battery checkers I own rely on the balance lead to check the cell voltages.

I don't think I've ever seen a checker for a straight 2S LiPo voltage, apart from a multimeter.  What do you all use?

Hi Chaps,

Here's the battery tray installed. This is more for anyone wondering how we do things in f3a. I attach the tray with two m3 screws to right angled carbon lengths, mounted across the fuselage. In this way the tray can be easily removed to access the U/C screws.. I also use end stops to locate the battery on the tray, which stops it sliding. I then use a single velcro strap to retain without having to tighten them to much. Other people just use Velcro straps and a "grippy" layer of PU foam rubber to hold the batteries in place.

BTW the packs were 5800 mAh and the newer 5000 mAh packs from Optipower
