So what will be a good lipo setup?
I'm new to lipo, so pardon the ignorance.
What I'm taking is that the Titan will MAX out at 6s, I guess that is 22.2 volts max.
So what you are saying is that I can do any combination of lipos as long as I don't go OVER 6s (6 cells in series).
So if I put one in each tray, I can go 1S, 2S, or 3S, on each side for a total of < 6S max, but no more?
Ok, next thing I'm not sure of, is doing parallel. In parallel, you are saying I could take 2 single 6S lipos and put them in there if they would fit?
I'm guessing this would give me more run time only, as I'm maxed at voltage.
Now what I really don't understand is the C ratings and how they play out in the battery to power role.
If the ESC can only handle a certain amount of volts and amps, then do we not already know that it will max around a certain C rating?
So 20c, 30c, or 80c? It has to be a predefined max limit based on what the ESC can handle right?
So which is it?
And I'd guess that C is directly related to internal resistance, so why would you run a lower 20C, if the motor / esc can pull 80C?
I see it like buring a light bulb filiment right near its failing point all the time. It's going to fail....Am I missing something? Does the ESC control the amperage based on battery C?
If WOT pulls 80C, and you run 20C lipos, all your going to do is max them out and heat them up and trash them right? So why do it???
So why even risk that and just go with 80C lipos?
I see all different suggestion here....and I don't understand...
I'm buying this boat, and I need to know what is going to be the most cost effective power option available OVER TIME. That means I don't want 20 C lipos if they are going to be burt out becasue I'm hitting them to hard.
I also belive a boat will be much harder on packs. Truck run with lots of wind and cooling, easy to med throttle and then, bursts here and there most of the time.......Boats run near max throttle most of the time with some lower draws on the corners.
What the heck kind of lipos should I get? I still don't know...
Oh, and can I get a charger that will charge multiple lipos at the same time?
And, how the heck do I wire these in parallel and what connectors should I get on the packs? Jeese...I may just go back to gas....
I'm a gasser by nature, but I'm attracted to BL due to low maintenance / lack of tuning of the engine / motor. However, I am quickly seeing that BL is going to be more $$ and it appears I'm going to have maintain a bunch of batteries all winter or I'm sure they will be shot....no?
I surely don't like going swimming for my stalled gas boat, and hence here I am as the BL should almost always get to shore, right?
Um, help me, I'm drowing in the lipos abyss....
