I look at this as a great opportunity that will pay back greater rewards than I have invested. As a bonus I have a weekend away with the wife !

Very cool stuff Steve!

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

Hey Steve or Jon. How much do you guys have wrapped up in your charger setups? I am assuming your are using a Meanwell power supply for 1000W? Looking at buying an Icharger 306b. Progressive has a setup with the power supply, case and charger for $540.

Carpe Diem!!!

I would take a serious look at a Powerlab PL8 V2 charger. I think it's the best unit out there.

Dang it. Started putting the 700 back together. Got it almost done. The head I bought came with 71mm rods for the FBL. Wrong ones. I need the 65mm. One small detail. Will cost as much to ship it as the part is. Oh well.

Carpe Diem!!!

I have two 1000W power supplies. One permanently in the trailer and one in a box. I have about $70 into both including the EXI 250 case. I bought server supplies off Ebay.
