    So, I'm new to battery math. Please point out my mistakes.

    I've got a 10,000 mAh 6S 25C lipo.
    My motors are 8x MT4012 480KV.

    If I understand the lipo C rating correctly then 10aH * 25C = safe to draw 250 Amps continuous.
    E-Calc reports my hover amps at 12.55 per motor = 100.4 Amps.
    And full throttle amps at 38.58 per motor = 308.64 Amps. That's ~58 amps greater than the 25C calculation from above.

    So is E-Calc telling me that if I push my copter to full throttle I'll, what? Damage the battery? Worse?
