I have some Nanos and Compacts, but only use them in low amp draw stuff (like my warbirds). For the EDFs I've started using the new Turnigy Graphenes. Good luck with them so far!

I have left mine charged for up to a week at a time, stored in a refrigerator at 40 F. And I always bring them up to room temp (75 F or so) before charging any packs on storage charge.

If you are flying EDF, you probably don't want to go below 3.8v per cell. That's what I'd set my alarm for. It also gives you enough juice for a go around if needed.

I store mine at 3.86v per...

Konrad,

Once again I agree the Freewing 12b setup is not the "best" system out there. But, I disagree with your comment that it is a "disaster". It flies my jets just fine.

Wow, that's a lot of flights on a single airframe. More than likely the motor bearings are shot. The high pitched whine was a clue. You may or may not have burned out the motor. See...

My garage has been in the low 30's in the winter. Still no issues.

I use only "high temp" hot glue, and a quality hot glue gun that properly heats the high temp glue.
