    Looking for advice to store my Lipo's over the winter here in the Polar Vortex. To what level do you charge them to.. 50% 100% ? I've read storing them in a refrigerated environment helps to reduce corrosion, anyone do this?

    I MIGHT get a few more flights in before winter sets into these forsaken lands.

    Comments?

    I would say store at 50% and set calendar to check the batteries in a month or two, making sure they are not falling below 25%. If so charge back up to 50% and wait patiently for warm weather to return ;)

    This... However...if you'd like to send me the batteries to keep them warm for you in Florida... I'd be happy to :)
