RC Helicopter Battery Voltage Matching Chart [ Choosing Guide ]

RC Helicopter Battery Voltage Matching Chart

How to choose the right lipo battery for your RC helicopter? Thare are many ratings that you should know when buying it. There are Voltage / Cell Count, Capacity, Discharge Rating (“C” Rating), Internal Resistance etc.

Today, we are mainly talking about RC Helicopter Battery Voltage from 3.7 Vlot (1s1p) to 44.4 vlots (12s1p) .

When you buying it, make sure that you are getting the most suitable voltage. Ensure that you get an appropriate size for your helicopter.

About Voltages:

A LiPo cell has a nominal voltage of 3.7V, a fully charged lipo voltage is 4.2V per cell (HV lipo can be charged to 4.35V). For the 7.4V battery above, that means that there are two cells in series. For the bigger rc helicopter such as above 600 class, when you are considering more than one battery in your helicopter, the voltage can easily be increased by connecting them in same series.

For example:

Mostly for 450 class rc helicopter will use  2200mAh 11.1v (3s1p) lipo battery with about 3500KV motor, just you want to use 22.2 Volts (6s1p) battery you can simply choose a motor with KV about 1700 which is a half to 3500KV.
