    What is everyone doing as far as keeping some batteries charged for those, holy crap, get hexi in the air moments? Are you storing batteries at full charge and for how long. Currently, I keep a set of 3 charged and make sure I use them within a week, needed or not.

    Not that anyone will reply to this thread, because this forum is dead!

    No, this forum is not dead..... just not so many H920 flyers.....
    I keep my batteries in storage mode. If expecting wheather to fly, i charge them full. When returning hom: in storage again or still nice wheather.... charge them up again. It works fine for me, no troubles with battaries sofar.

    With 6000 member , I don't think so.

    As Jan said H920 tend to go directly to Yuneec for support.

    hi
    all that i have read or seen on a video states never leave LIPO batteries fully charge for a long time although a lot of people do . storage mode is the best thing you can do to keep your battery in a save condition . balance charging is the best way to charge a LIPO battery . go to the wesite below , good info .

    Thanks guys! I will take a look at the LIPO video.

    Also, do you guys notice the issue with the rabbit/turtle connected to the zoom control of the camera?

    If one likes picking up a fairly new but puffed up battery, all they need to do is leave them fully charged for a long period of time. I've tossed four or five 6000ma+ batteries for that reason alone.
