I wish to charge up my RX and TX packs using the supplied Futaba charger.After they are full i was thinging about connecting the wall charger to some form of timing device which would add a small charge every 24 hours. This way I would hope the packs will remain fully charged for weekend flying.

Any thoughts about the time per 24 hours that would counteract the NiCd self discharge rate? I have seen this idea with a commercial product but was wondering does anyone use them?

The Tx pack is your standard 700Mah Futaba pack with the RX at 1500. I un fortunately often go up to 2 weeks without flying. Are there going to be any long term negative effects? Am i better just doing a full cycle before the flight?

Thanks
