Ok building my second set of night blades. The last set was good but did have a issue with charging and plug issues. What are you guys using to turn on and to charge. Please post a pics so I can see. My last set had a 3 prong plug with a jumper to turn on and the other to charge. Thanks

+1 I do it like Mr. HillBilly, but I don't use the switch, but rather a shorted male deans when I am ready to fly. Another male deans to charge. You get 2x each male and female in a pack of these 3 pin deans.

This is how I did mine. The main goal was to take as much off the blades as possible and put the battery in the center where the centrifugal forces are very small, and the performance increased dramatically. Now fly's just like a regular set of blades as apposed to being very mushy and slow like someone put a tone of expo in my radio.

I used micro deans to guaranty that the connection would stay and they are very light weight and it is easy to recharge the batteries. If you use any other connection, the forces may disconnect them.
