Dude,

I see what you are saying... that was what I was after, about a .5 C charge rate. Did not even think about how big that pack was... LOL... 2.6 sounds better.

I charge in my heli, so I wanted to be as slow as possible to avoid heating and possible fire, but did not think about the possibility of not getting the performance out of it.

Thanks for the heads up!

Not purposely trying to beat this subject to death, BUT, just another reason I like the LiFe solution so well. Safely fast charge in the heli.

I would also like to point out that Futaba states all of their airborn equipment is 5 cell nicad safe unless otherwise noted. (5 x 1.35V = 6.75V) which is right in there for the 2S A123 packs.

During the recent setup of my new Pantera, I ran a 1200 mah LiFe pack down to 6.27V and put back 1152 mah into it. Didn't have to worry about pack damage at all.

As in all things, there is no perfect solution for everybody. This is pretty close though IMHO.

Oh I forgot to ask, which lead is used to check the voltage on the Arizona? I assume it the lead going to the rx.

Charge the LIPO in your heli?
Rayovac, I just read where you charge your LIPO pack while its mounted in your heli. I bought a new Pantera and I'm assembling it now. I bought the Align regulator and 5000Mah LIPO to drive it. I have always charged my LIPOs for my Trex 450 in a LiPo pack. Do you feel safe charging your LIPO in the heli? I would love to be able to do that. On my Tiger, I have a 3300 Mah NiMh battery and its nice to charge it on the heli. But I thought I read that you should ALWAYS remove the LIPO from the heli before charging. I'm curious as to what others do when charging their LIPOs.

Gunner,

I run the Fromeco 5200 LiLo pack, not LiPo. My understanding is that they are far less volatile then LiPo. I charge the LiPos for my 450 in a LiPo Sac because I generally charge them in the home instead of in the garage or somewhere safer. I also run a temp sensor with charging cutoff on my Bantam charger.
