    If you intend to let a lipo sit for longer than 2 days you are suposed to charge it to 60%

    you can do that , or full charge em right before you play. So you charger wont even discharge?

    Time to invest in a new charger, you batteries will thank you for it.

    if your run time is 20 minutes from full charge till lvd, just run it for 10 minutes.
