Lipo Batteries...charged up or not???
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Being a newbie with Lipo Batteries my question is:-
When not in use should they be completely discharge??
If while setting up and waiting for a good day to fly
is it OK to leave some charge in them or not???
Would appreciate a knowledgeable answer.

I think for storage (more than a week) lipo's should be roughly 70% charged. DO NOT COMPLETELY DISCHARGE!! Doing so will destroy your packs.
Hope that helps

I found this website on care of and charging Lipos. Below is a direct quote from the article. Website address follows. Hope this helps.
STORAGE (of Lipos)
Store batteries at room temperature between 40 and 80 degrees F.
Do not expose battery pack to direct sunlight and heat for extended periods
Ensure that batteries being carried in a vehicle are kept cool
Batteries are best stored with a 50% charge
