Li-Polymer RC Batteries
Imagine flying a
4-Channel Tiger Moth or
J3 Piper Cub for over an hour on a single
charge. Or imagine an indoor 3-D model that you can
hover in a small office for over 15 minutes. With LiPo batteries you no longer
have to imagine, as this type of performance is now a reality.
For the first time in its
over-30-year existence, an electric powered model was competitive against the
most powerful O.S. and Y.S. glow-powered pattern airplanes in an FAI world
championship format. At the start of the event, contestants and spectators alike
were skeptical, believing that competing with an electric model was more of a
publicity stunt than a serious competition attempt. But after the first flight,
all skeptics were silenced and by the end of the preliminary rounds, a 4th place
position transferring into the finals proved that an electric-powered model had
the right stuff to compete against the most powerful glow-powered aircraft, as
flown by the best pilots in the world.
