LiPo (Lithium-Polymer) batteries are a popular means for powering our electric models. As is the case when working with any power source, there are a few things that modelers need to know to stay safe and keep their batteries performing.
Sir George Cayley, often called the Father of Aeronautics, designed a helicopter powered by a bow-string mechanism with feather blades (similar to the reproduction shown here).
