If you want to obtain the ultimate performance from your electric powered models then nothing comes close to LiPo batteries. In the past, the highest powered batteries tended to be heavy and didn’t perform all that well as they simply added too much weight to the model. This greatly limited the endurance which limited what designers could achieve. But, the rise of the LiPo gas mean many models now have superior speeds, rate of climb and endurance than ever before, even when compared with their internal combustion powered equivalents.
LiPo batteries offer the very best power to weight ratio when compared with all other types. The very low self-discharge level of these batteries means they will retain around 80% of their charge for around 12 months and they are supplied ready to use i
