The manual on my DX6 is a little vague on charging. Do you charge the radio on or off, and how do you know when it has a full charge? Red light goes off..turns green? Thanks for listening to my noob rantings! LOL

Plug it in and let it sit 12hrs or so.

It wont change color and it wont charge if its on.

It must be switched off to charge if I remember right, also the stock nicad is only 600mAH so it doesn't last long, turn the radio off whenever your not using it or buy a much bigger capacity pack.

Spektrum should be ashamed supplying such a poor battery in the DX6.

Do you have to stick with a nicad pack or is there a NiMH version. If there is NiMH available, would you use the same charger?

You can get high capacity NiMH packs but the wall wart will never charge them fully despite the math you may hear quoted other wise.
