Super Cub S Electric Airplane

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just bought this plane not too long ago and can't figure out how to charge it. The charger is a Prophet Sport Li-Po and I'm not sure where to set my charge/current to get a fully charge for flying. The options are 0.5A, 1A, 1.5A (charge), 2A, 2,5A, 3A (current). I have never used a charger like this before and so I'm not sure what to do with it. This is the charger that came with the plane.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Super Cub S Electric Airplane

Should tell us the size of the lipo, or at least the brand of the aircraft. A lot of different sport cubs out there.

If this is the Parkzone Sport Cub, 51" wingspan it takes a 1300-2200mah size battery. You can safely charge it at 1C for sure. 1C means: 2.2 amps for a 2200mah, 1.3 amps for a 1300mah lipo.

And if you know the C-rating of the battery to be sufficient, you can rapidly charge it at twice that - ie if it is 2C rated for charging then 4.4 amps for a 2200, 2.6 amps for a 1300. But easier and safer on a battery to charge slowly and well balanced. I still charge all my lipo around 1C even if they are rated much higher

Do not let it charge out of sight unless you are doing it outisde clear of combustibles. More than a couple of RC pilots have burned down their houses due to unattended lipo charging resulting a fire
