|Lithium Polymer batteries have revolutionised electric flight. More power, longer motor run times, less weight and the ability to hold a charge are the main benefits that they deliver. They do need to be handled with care, but once charging and balancing routines are established, the benefits of better performance and maintaining a charge have converted the majority of electric fliers to this type of battery power.
The new Limited Electric Glider rules for Australian competition have contributed to the LiPo revolution, particularly now that 30/ 50C packs have become readily available.
