There should be caps of a few 100µF
Most LiPo/Lion cells are 3.7V nominal (4.2V max and 3.2V min), so a 4S pack should go up to 4*4.2V = 16.8V at full charge and go down to no less than 4*3.2V = 12.8V at full discharge.Oct 14, 2012
Is this a good choice to power the 2 x 12V motors + all other components ? cause I'm worried.. about 14.8v if it would damage the motors.
FYI, since you seem to be new to Lipos,
Can I use 2 x 4.2v (aka 3.7v) cells and use a boost converter for 12v ?Is that advisable to do ?
Looks like it would work if the input voltage is < 8 V.
That's incorrect. Input voltage is 5V < 8 V so it is fine.
