Eventually it will reaches a point where it just doesn’t gain any more flight time with bigger battery (even lose flight time). LiPo batteries (short for Lithium Polymer) are a type of rechargeable battery that is the battery of choice in the RC world . Chacteristic of Lipo Betteries RC LiPo batteries are light and can be made in any shape.

Botboarduino drivers

Ok guys it's been a while since I've been on I'm glad everything is picking back up.

I recently had to wipe my computer after getting a virus. Which means I lost all my drivers and code and etc. I managed to get arduino up and running but my botboarduino needs drivers to work. I'm kinda freaked out about catching another virus and I can't seem to find the correct drivers for ft232 uart. I tried one place but it keeps asking me for a password to open it. And when I point the device manager it refuses to see the zip file.
