Default Lipo Conditioning?

Do you have to Condition a new Lipo pack? If so, how?

Well I think a good "practice" is to put short flights on there for the first 5 or so flights. Checking EXACTLY how many Mah you put back in after each flight.

so for the first two flights maybe 2 minutes
the next two flight 3 minutes
the next flght 4 mintues
the last one 5 minutes

Then you find the exact time it lasts with the headspeed at where you will be flying and exactly how much time it takes to get to 80% empty on that pack
