Kind of a dumb question, but making sure...

Just got my first nitro bird (currently have a few 450's). The battery that controls the servo's, could that be charged while still on the heli or should I take it off? Or am I a complete moron?

If its NOT a lipo, then it can be charged on the heli.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Then it can be safely charged with the correct charger. Many choppers have an external charge jack so the pod or scale body doesn't have to be removed during charging.

I hear ya vert. When I opened the box my joker came in I shat myself at the size. It's winter hear so I still haven't put it in the air yet. Gives me the time to go through it and set everything up. Now to the point. My rx/electronics pack has a plug built in to the heli. I missed it on the first look and was myself trying to figure out how to charge the pack as all the wiring was zip tied. The outlet was actually on the back of the ship. It is just the standard servo type plug, I just use the tx wall charger to charge it.
