Ok battery question: My thunder power 5100mah batterys fluctuate at then end of the charge cycle now. The input amps go up and down alot at then end of the charge. I checked the internal resistance on them with my icharger and they have gone from 1's and 2's to 3's and 4's. Are they going bad? all the cells still seem to stay close to the same voltage during the charge cycles.Glenn

Man, today was such a blast. I flew so far outside my comfort zone today. Did a bunch of firsts. I am still grinning ear to ear. I felt so comfortable trying new stuff. I had the 600 so far away over the beans and I felt in control. Today was the first time flying a big heli I wasn't intimidated by it and just flew.
What a rush!
I broke alot of barriers today and feel like I can move forward again.
Today was just awsome for me flying wise.

Where was Jeff? He had ran his mouth [as normal] I get to the field and i had learned that his wife had made him go home, and he had crashed again, what is up with that, the crashing part that is, everyone knows that Jeff's wife controls him.Hawk

What a day ! Later in the afternoon I started hot lapping the 600 and put about 8 or 10 flights on,then I had to discharge all the batteries I had left charged on top of that ! Easily 20 flights on the day.
That Power Master fuel seemed to run pretty well after the extra tuning Paul gave to the 55 it was the most power I have had in that machine in quite awhile !(Thanks Paul) As I was spotting for BIll today I caught of glimpse of Sonny doing a Piro flip ! Thats right folks Sonny was doing a true piro flip and never flew over the pits once today! Mr Striley Scared the crap out of quite a few people today, David from Nankin Hobbies was scared **** less when John was doing loops in the wind,even Dave and Bob were ready to run and when I looked back I noticed the spectators had even backed up about 10 yards, You really got to keep what you can do under control especially at a FF.
I only know of a few crashes today Jeff, Bill, John and myself flying Brians Whiplash(Lost a tail link)I tried my best not to break the blades but as usual they broke anyways
All in all a GREAT DAY of flying.

pretty much the same as far as power. Just the cycling on charge that worried me. They take about 2 mins longer to charge than they used toGlenn

John H...No mention of the "high tech" redneck jump start on the way out? How disappointing.

2-3S 2200mAH packs, parallel adapter I used for my planks, and alligator clips I use for my charger. Worked like a champ.

I tried to start things on fire by letting the clips touch afterward, but other than that all was good.
