    Hey guys...new P3A owner here. Thanks for all the info provided on here.

    Just a quick question that may have been asked already, but I can't find anything on. I used the quad this weekend and probably wont use it until next weekend. Is it safe to charge batteries up to 50% and simply undock them from charger at that point? Or is it better to fully charge and then discharge to 50%...or does it really matter?

    Thanks for any advice on this.

    50% is 50% as far as I know. Either charged to or discharged until, it seems to be the same. I use the 30-50% level rule myself on all of my smaller quad/helicopter/airplane batteries as well as my P2V+ V3. So far, so good.

    Someone with more experience will, undoubtedly, be along to correct me if I'm wrong.

    Congrats on your new Quad and welcome to the forums!!!
