When I was out on a Saturday two weeks ago a trailer with a 1/4 acrobat came out at 5:30. If there ever is a concern or complaint about noise you don't need to do any research or buy a DB meter. The noise was loud but the constant pulsing they do would get on my nerves quick if I lived nearby. I was going to tell the guy his throttle can do more than just 0, %70, and %100. He might as well just move his throttle to a toggle switch.

It was metal/silverish? It also came to a V in the front. The loudest helicopter and blade bark is nothing compared to these machines. It reminded me of a monster truck or what an offshore powerboat must sound like. To be fair I think all the 1/4 scale gas acrobat planes sound like this. If noise comes up in a meeting they should first restrict these machines to certain days and times so the neighbors don't hear them every day or late in the day.

Dan and another person came out again today at 5. He had a smaller one that wasn't super loud. Later he got out his bigger one and it was louder but it was mostly engine noise and not super sonic tips so I guess these guys are not the excessively loud ones. I would equate it to a chain saw noise.
These engines can go a long time on one tank.

He had a dog with black curly hair. I don't think these are the super loud planes even though I first said that. Just your standard large, weed wacker type, engines. This is just the second time I have been out on Saturday so they just started coming out on an empty time.
The second guy's planes were all smaller and quieter than Dan's.

Well boys, I went through everything and neither of the chargers work right, the power supply seems to work, lost four 5300 6S Glacier batts and homeowners insurance isn't going to do me any good as my deductible is $1000 and that's about what the value is .

I'm hoping to find some used I chargers but I don't think my 700 is going to see much airtime this year as I can't afford new batts right now.

I heard about a problem. Did the batteries explode or the charger? What rate are you putting into the batteries that went?
