Saw the discussion in another thread. Forgiveness if this has been covered. Hello, took a 20 year break from RC so Hexcopters = NEW; LIPO=NEW. So comments are welcome. Bought a typhoon h friday. Love it. I THINK I was able to get it to charge to 1C. See my jury rig in photos. Charger said it was pushing 5.4 amps. Was using a Venom PRC3 Using modified big paper clips for connector.

You would be wise to not charge without balancing, no good can come of it.

I agree, set it up to BALANCE charge.
I am now charging at a max of 6 amps. It can take more but I am not pushing it.

Look here on how to modify the Yuneec charger base:

LiPo's are safe if properly cared for.

Copy that Raptor, I ran it for just a minute to see if the battery would take 1C. Glad to see the mods people are doing so we can see individual cell conditions
