I guess I'm a newbie, its been about 15 years since I've owned a RC vehicle. So what do I do? I order a 1/10 Summit of course! Should be here early next week and I can't wait!
I've been doing a lot of reading, mostly on here and other forums, and now I'm a little concerned. I ordered it with the 2 5000mAh 2-cell LiPo batteries. It seems these batteries take a little more care and feeding that what I was used to in the past, so I'm a little concerned with them.
From what I've gathered, don't over charge them, don't let the charge go below 3v, storage charge them to 3.8v, charge them on concrete, use a LiPo bag, etc, etc. How deep is the water I'm getting in to?
A few questions I have are:
1) Should I look to get a those bags to charge them in?
2) Should I get a better charger than the stock balance chargers that are included? I was looking at maybe getting the Traxxas EX Peak Plus charger. It would appear the included balance chargers would not do a discharge or storage charge.
Any LiPo battery guidance would be appreciated. Heck, any other general guidance would be a bonus as well.
I really enjoy this forum, there is such a wealth of information and its good to know there is a lot help available when needed.
