My gun: Trident MKII CRB 400fps version (new with < 5000 rounds shot)
Gun modifications: Tamiya mini replaced with genuine Deans (perfect solder job with shrink wraps) My battery: Matrix 11.1v 1800mAh 15C continuous / 25C burst nunchuck (new with < 5000 rounds shot) So, I went to the shooting range at the Evike.com store in Alhambra, CA this morning for some range work. Over the course of a few hours I fired off around 3000 rounds from my rifle, mostly in semi-auto, with small breaks here and there of shooting my pistol. I noticed that the grip of my rifle was warm, and upon inspecting my lipo, I noticed that it was very slightly warm, too. How warm was the grip? Not anywhere near Starbuck’s cup of coffee warm. But, it was noticeable. How warm was the lipo? Meh... You could tell it wasn’t room temperature. But, it certainly didn’t feel “hot”. Just a little warmer. Now, I know that a motor is going to generate heat, and I know that chemical reactions release heat, too. But, just for a reality check, is this normal?
