You can use the standard battery lead on the flight pack to charge your cx2. Just get a good charger and the correct lead, I would however balance the pack evry 3 or 4 flights to keep the cells in line.

Good luck

I have had no real probs charging through the main connector in the past. But I understand why E flight would tell you it is not a good idea. You will always be safer charging through the balance connector with the charger provided in the kit, or a suitable balance charger. At the end of the day you will not really gain anything in the time it takes to charge the battery as the balance charger should turn the battery round in about 1 hour, which is about how long it takes to charge through the main connector with a decent lipo charger. If you are looking to get back in the air as fast as possible, you are usually better to get a few spare packs, I can recommend the flight power upgrade pack, I have 3 spare packs and this allows almost continous flying, I charge the packs with seperate chargers one for each pack, as the chargers are pretty cheap.

Hope you're having fun.

Good luck
