Storing lipos is never good, its best to use them up as much as possible in one season, you will get the highest cycle life if they are never stored. NEVER buy a lipo until you are ready to use it (unless the deal is too good), as sitting there is just reducing its lifespan.

Also when flying in cold weather you should always preheat the packs and try to reduce any cooling, its better for the packs and better for your performance.

I guess i should get off my arse and go flying my electrics in the

thanks chad
