PROBOAT RECOIL 17 12.1 VOLT BATTERY by Les-Forbes Captain   Posted: 13 days ago
Thank Dave M. It get's confusing when in the manual it states... Charge to half capacity after use. But of course, how can you charge it to half capacity, when the charger charges EACH cell separately. It's hair pulling out stage. LOL.

huntsman plan by big-tone Petty Officer   Posted: 17 days ago
Hi Trevor I was told the kits only have a build manual no plan but if you have one for a 46 that would be great .so far all I have found are plans for the smaller 31inch version.i can do copies at work if that would be easier I would pay postage do copy and return if you fin d anything Regards tony

Twin motor control problem by John Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 17 days ago
Hi Paul, yes it sails at Bury and I am continuing to try different options. There has been much head scratching at Bury over the problem and the rescue boat has been out a couple of times to rescue the boat in reverse. The Y leads have been tried as you suggested. It is easy to test the rotation direction by feeling the air flow and slowing them manually to observe them.

DISCHARGE CONUNDRUM by Les-Forbes Captain   Posted: 19 days ago
Hi Dave. Here is the section in the manual regarding the battery.

I could guess as well as you, Doug, but the answer lies in the manual. Sorry Doug, I meant Haverlock. Apologies Dave

HI Les My mistake in asking you to upload the manual. I should have said upload pics. Can you photo and up load the relevant section, please?

DISCHARGE CONUNDRUM by Les-Forbes Captain   Posted: 19 days ago
The battery charging section is within the main user manual for this little Proboat Recoil 17.

DISCHARGE CONUNDRUM by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 20 days ago
Hi Les Can you upload the instruction manual? The storage charge is normally set by your charger and the balance lead on the battery is used by the charger to set each cell to the storage voltage. If there is only one LED then I suspect this is after all cells have reached the set charge value. Hopefully the charger manual will help

DISCHARGE CONUNDRUM by Les-Forbes Captain   Posted: 20 days ago
The instruction manual says "When the charging of one cell is complete (there are three cells in this battery) the LED turns green and the next cell is charged. It then states in the manual "Charge your Li-Po battery to about half capacity before storage." How do you do that when each cell is charged separately during the process

lipo storage charge by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 27 days ago
Hi Dave, all well and good, but you told Chris that there is something wrong with his unit. Which there isn't he was simply in Storage Charge mode (as his thread title and query stated) and the unit reacted correctly for that mode. Battery tech is progressing almost as fast as processors so I guess we can expect frequent updates and differences. 🤔 Have a nice day, the rain has reached us at last after a week or two of Indian Summer. Cheers Doug 😎 Hope Chris doesn't get confused by info overload from the vid! I simply checked the operating manual of the unit Chris is using.

lipo storage charge by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 27 days ago
Hi Dave, I'm sorry too cos I didn't say you recommended anything! But you did state that 'something is wrong', which it clearly wasn't operating the unit in Storage Charge mode. Also 3.7V is only the nominal cell voltage. The recommended Storage voltage is 3.85V, as stated in the charger manual, and which is what the charger did. The objective is to limit the amount of stored energy which can cause havoc if anything unforeseen happens in storage, as well as to prolong the life of the battery. See also attached LiPo storage tips. Just three samples of several which all state the storage voltage (SV) as 3.8 or 3.85V. The safety leaflets which came with my LiPos also said the same. Cheers Doug 😎

Hi Chris, DON'T PANIC! There's nothing wrong with your charger / controller 😊 3.7V is the 'nominal' voltage per LiPo cell. The 'Storage' voltage used by your charger is quoted in the manual as 3.85V per cell. See pic. Therefore, give or take 50mV or so your charger is operating quite correctly in Storage Charge mode. Before starting the device indicates the nominal voltage of the battery you have specified, i.e. 2S which is why it shows 7.4V before starting the charge. At the end of the cycle the battery voltage should be around 7.6 - 7.7V which it apparently was. 👍 The controller will discharge a battery with a higher starting voltage than 7.6V and charge one with a lower starting voltage. Dave was talking of Full Charge voltages, which is not recommended for storing LiPos!! Cheers Doug 😎

Twin Esc/Mixer by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
"slow down and read the manual" That was from me! 😉 Sometimes we have to brake Neil's enthusiasm a little! Cheers Doug 😎

Twin Esc/Mixer by saga32 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
Mention was made earlier of the two sets of red and black wires being for separate batteries. The manual says "Do not under any circumstances connect a separate battery pack to each pair of red and black wires - it may seem logical but you will very probably do fatal damage to the P94" I would agree with the previous post from NPJ "slow down and read the manual" There's a lot in there. Hope your tug installation goes well

Hi Neil, sorry but they do tell you that. See pic! Extract from the pdf file data on the site, which one can read before ordering! Check this out- You need the slots for the heat sinks cos you seem to have the 20A version. Which is more than you need for the Richardson I think. I don't need the slots cos I bought the 10A P94 Lite version. What do we learn? Slow down and read the manual and small print 😉 Cheers Doug 😎 Have a good break. Kit-Kat? 😉
