    Wondering if I should charge my transmitter to "top off" the battery? Or should I let get down some?

    Personally, I think it's best to run it down some rather than top it off all the time. Lipos don't like to be fully charged 24.7. I run mine down to one lamp, then fully charge it.

    There's no need to top it off every time. You should be able to get 20+ flights in before you need to charge it.
