As you said, that is regarding RC planes where you'd effectively have to fire full auto for the entire time before the bat dies, 30 times. Which is a LOT of fire.

I've dumped close to 10,000rnds in a year on this battery, and it's still going strong. I have another in case this one goes.

plus "airsoft brand" batteries are usually only rated 15c, rhino batteries are 20c and i got a 25c

I have a friend with a 7.4 5000mah in a RPK, and he hasn't charged the battery in 6months, still going strong. This is NOT the best way to treat Lipo batteries, but it does say something about them.
