Mile High RC Lithium Poly Tips and Safety

 

Thank You for your purchase. We hope the milehighrc.com battery gives you the power you are looking for. We have put this list together in an effort to help keep you safe, and to help keep you battery alive for many uses. We feel the following tips should be applied to any Lipo pack or cell.

 FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAN CAUSE FIRE, PERSONAL INJURY AND DAMAGE OF PROPERTY. 

1)      Always charge with a lipo approved charger.

2)      Never charge your batteries unattended.

3)      Never charge at a rate over 1C.

4)      Make sure your charger is rated for the number of cells you are charging.

5)      Never discharge below 3V per cell. (2 cell 6V, 3 cell 9V etc)

6)      Do not charge with your charger hooked to an unregulated/unstable power source.

7)      Store and transport batteries at room temperature. Never leave your battery in your vehicle. Suggested extreme maximum temperature is 150F. Never allow you lipos to freeze.

8)      Never charge with the battery in your model.

9)      When balance charging with JST connectors charge 1 cell at a time.

 Taking care of your battery

 Charge battery with high quality charger:
  Set voltage and charging current correctly.
 Check the voltage after the first charge.

2cell: 8.4V (8.32 to 8.44)            3cell: 12.6V (12.48 to 12.66)       4cell: 16.8V (16.64 to 16.88)
5cell: 18.5V (18.30 to 18.60)    Etc...

Let the battery cool down to ambient temperature before charging or discharging. If your batteries get warm while charging you are most likely charging at to high of a rate.
Do not puncture or mechanically damage the cells.

Do not use leads as if they are pull straps.

Do not short circuit the battery/leads.

IN CASE OF CRASH, PLACE THE BATTERY IN A SAFE OPEN SPACE, OBSERVE FOR 15-20 MINUTES OR UNTIL COOL TO THE TOUCH.

Operating temperature: Charge: 32-113 deg F Discharge: 32 to 150 deg F

Battery life cycle: Battery that loses 20% of its capacity should be removed from service and properly disposed.

First battery use: Check for proper polarity, Keep the flight time around 6 minutes with 15 minutes break between the flights.

 Inspection: Inspect your pack regularly looking for damage and puffed cells.

 If you have any issues fell free to e-mail sales@milehighrc.com.

 

ENJOY, FEEL THE POWER, and HAVE FUN !!!

 


 

Flipping the shaft of the 300, 400 and 500 series motors.

 We used a 300 series outrunner for the photos. But the same method is used for the 300 series and 400 series.

      

    Notice the allen screw in that picture (click it for a bigger picture)? Loosen the allen screw (4mm).

 Pull on the bell and it will come off leaving the shaft in the housing.

    Simply pull the shaft out from the front/flat side. Leaving you with the bell, the housing, and a shaft.

 

 From here Move the location of the C-clip to the end of the shaft.

Assemble the motor with the C-clip resting on the housing/flat end of the motor not the bell and tighten the allen screw. You have just flipped the shaft and you are ready to go.

For those who are using the motors for direct drive you may find the 3mm shaft a little different. The 3mm shaft has two different c-clip locations.

 


Outrunner Operation

Before connecting your motor to the battery please read the following instructions to ensure a smooth operation of your motor.

1. The motors are brushless type. They require a specific electronic speed controller (ESC) to control its operation. Please do not use the one you used for a brushed motor.

2. Connecting the motor to the ESC.

Connect the 3 wires from motor to the ESC. There is no specific match of the 3-wires., it takes experiment to decide if the connection meets your requirement. If the propeller does not turn in the correct rotation direction, reverse or switch any two wires between ESC and motor.

3. Use only the recommended number of battery cells and propeller size. Over-size propeller and battery cells will deteriorate its performance or even damage the motor.

4. The Type A motor can be switched from a puller style to a pusher style motor. On the case you will find 2 allen screws. Simply loosen the allen screws and pull the shaft out. Flip the shaft over, tighten the screws and you have switched from a pusher to a puller.

5. These are strong efficient motors. To maximize the life of your motor keep the amp draw under control. The cooler you keep any motor the longer life it will have. Also check the sight often as some of the Amp ratings will be going up.
