TESTING 18650 BATTERIES FOR MULTICOPTERS

 

I like to inform everyone who is using a quadcopter or a multicopter that I have done numerous tests with the following batteries to see if are able to work with multicopters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


I used INR18650-25R and INR18650HG2 and made 6s2P packs

with the INR18650HG2 I made a 6s2P 6000mAh total of 40amps weight 597g. and with INR18650-25R I made a 6s2P 5000mAh total of 40amps weight 601g.

I used them on my quadcopter
quadcopter weight with batteries 2,042grams
Motors 380kv Tarot
40amp esc
15x5,5 props
DJI Naza

With the INR18650-25R 5,000mAh I flow 20min. and with the INR18650HG2 6,000mAh I fow 21min see, my video at

with a 6s 5,000mAh Gens battery I fly 11min. 10min less.
after the flight the volts per cell were

3,28v
3,27v
3,27v
3,27v
3,27v
3,27v

then I used two INR18650HG2 6s2P 6000mAh total of 80amps and my quadcopter flow for 30min.
volts per cell after flight.

3,25
3,26

and

3,23

my next test will be with the VTC5 batteries, I will make a 4s4P 10,000mAh weight at 720g 120amps and will use it on my hexacopter see picture.


On my hexa I'm using six 2213/920kv T motors and it weights with out the battery 1,780g.
With a 4s Gens 10,000mAh 25c-50c battery weight is 900g. I fly for 15min.

​​stay tuned for more tests....
