Got my 600 today - amazing piece of equipment!!!

A question though on charging the small 7.5V battery included in the kit.

I have a swallow advance and set the mAh to 1100 (as per the battery) but although the swallow goes to to 1100 mAh - the voltage on the swallow screen says 11.1V. I am bit worried about plugging it in now - is this OK? Do I perhaps need another charger?

That should charge the little align pack with no problems.
Is there a way to tell it that you are using a 2 Cell pack?
It sounds as if it is set to charge a 3 cell Lipo.

You definitely dont want to start it at 11.1 volts!

Maybe I missed something but I don't see any reference to its ability to charge Li-poly batteries. It does say it charges Li-Ion, which is not the same.

It can. I checked quite a few sites and they all reference lipo capable. It's even listed as a best buy at modelflight. It must be the settings.
