🔽 How low can I fly my batteries?

I prefer flying mine only up until 3.7v per cell, sometimes I could go even as low as 3.6v but very rarely. Technically, you can fly them even further, all the way to 3.5v, but I don’t recommend that and it would reduce their lifetime.

🔽 Battery storage voltage

In general good long-term lipo battery storage voltage is anywhere between 3.8 - 3.9 v per cell.

🔽 How to keep your U.FL IPEX antenna in any position you want?

I’d like to share with you one quick and easy way of fixing a U.FL IPEX VTX antenna to stay in any way you want it to. For example, at a 90 degree angle and up and away from the props, which could be a good thing.

Fix U.FL IPEX antenna in position

To achieve this, grab a small piece of shrink tube, apply some hot glue all around where the antenna connects to the VTX. Then apply a bit of hot glue all along the antenna up until the thicker part. Finally, slide in the heat shrink, shrink it with a lighter or a heat gun and hold it in place until the hot glue cools off.

I learned about this trick from this video, and so credit goes, where credit is due!
