Hi everyone, I looked and looked before creating a new thread, and I hope it might be merged into another post like the “User’s guide”
For me, batteries are the most “dangerous/unknown” in the system (coming as a Free-flyer/fixed-wing-aircraft pilot)
For anyone that received a ready-to-fly from OpenPPG assembled kit, having performed a training on a regular 2-stroke engine course, I think the questions you might ask yourself is :
READ this ! => OpenPPG Open Guide
But, I am missing stuff…
For a pilot it is important to know it’s endurance. I sadly do not get any % on my device/controller. (I have a nice constant 0, enevn though I customized to 6S via the online setup-soft)
I read the Voltage you have when fully charged (25,2/6Sbatt = 50,4V displayed on the controller), the one when discharged (Don’t discharge below 3.5v/cell says GliderPilot here : https://community.openppg.com/t/storage-of-unused-batteries-bonkas)
but what about the readings during flight?!
When flying/under load, with a high amp-draw, from 80 to 210A draw reading on the remote control on my setup for instance…) the Voltage is a lot less than the one without draw.
So… when to stop? How to evaluate when is it safe ton continue and when to stop? What voltage do you usually stop requiring full throttle/reducing the use to go for a safe landing/ from your OpenPPG so spare your batteries?
Thank you for your inputs or to direct me to the adequate topic…
Have nice flights
ps : I Flew first time this summer… see : This Video
Tank’s to the owners, it took me quite some time to get in the air (fried board), and I’m dying to fly again…
Flew with a Ozone Swift 4 (PG glider size MS-24m² - 70kg naked, so 85kg flying weight with wing and setup) and 2 6S batteries, a few short flights…(many flights with 4 batteries total, 2 at a time) did not even discharge below storage level, that’s why I’m looking for more accurate numbers…and the SD-Card did not record the flights… a faulty card…(France is locked-down))
