Gibbs Guide to Lithium Batteries

One of the many Quick Reference Tables within this guide. These allow you to quickly and easily choose a suitable power system for your model. This table shows that a medium speed model requiring a 200 Watt system could use an 1,850 mAh 3-cell LiPo, a motor with a Kv of approximately 1,060 capable of 25 Amps continuously, a 9 x 6 prop and an ESC rated at 28 Amps or higher. Nothing could be simpler!

I think that your tome will be of infinite value to all in our hobby and especially to new recruits.
Chris Golds, UK.

his guide has been very helpful indeed in helping me to choose a power system for my latest model. All my questions about the ESC, motor, battery, propeller, wiring etc were answered. I showed your guide to my local model shop and I had a hard time getting it back from them!
Derek Smith, Perth, Australia.

An outstandingly useful guide. It should cost a lot more than you are asking.
