    Dunno if this was addressed before.

    I like to know what type of batteries are best suited for driving motors in RC choppers that I have ?

    Why not use li-ons instead of lipos. ?
    Is it because of the surge current capabilities or heavy current drain requirements ?

    I have plenty of Li-ons but not lipos or nimh or nickel wht ever ( 4got the name just now.:confused:).

    Electric model airplanes and helicopters use Li-Po batteries because their plastic case is lightweight and they are used for the products.

    Li-Ion batteries have a heavy metal case and are used for laptop computers.
