Hi, this is not how LiPol batteries are treated.
I recommend using a cheap digital charger, which has a built-in balancer and the ability to discharge batteries. At the same time, it has a storage program in its menu, which will take care of charging the cells to about 60% after discharging.(charger from TURNIGY) This way, the articles can be saved for up to half a year. And they will not be damaged. I myself have 4000 mA twin cells, which are 5 years old and are still not inflated and have full capacity. Under no circumstances should LiPol batteries be stored in a discharged state - they will be damaged.

Don't know where my post has gone,?? but there is nothing wrong with discharging a LiPo like this. It is exactly the same as running a motor to discharge a battery you have charged but are not using, and want to discharge back to storage level. You will note that there is a cell monitor as well as a voltage alarm to show when the battery is nearing storage level. Then you discharge the battery using the discharge/balance/amp meter (you will need to buy one of these to do this) the rest of the way,- or you can put it on the balance charger to storage level I have been doing this for more than 10 years, have 15 planes and 6 boats,- all LiPo powered. I also use the same LiPos in camping lanterns. Never had a problem.
Hello, yes, this is one of the options, but it is unnecessarily lengthy and requires constant control to avoid damaging the cells. What I wrote is just an easier way to treat the battery. By no means did I want to deny your procedure.
Zdeněk wishes much success in modeling.
