I think it is a good choice but make sure it has it's own power supply, if not u should invest into the Hyperion duo 3 then a good power supply. I thought about getting one myself but changed my mind to the Hyperion for dual charging and able to charge a 12s battery if need be.

I checked out the Hyperion and , yes it is a great charger but almost 3 times as much. I only have an MX450, a Trex 450 and Lipos in my Raptor 50 using my align 2 in 1. Currently I only have 6 3s 2200 11.1 lipos and am planning on getting a Trex 500. If there is another charger/blancer out there with a better price tag, currently I'm using an Align RCC-X and an e-flite 3 cell only charger.

I just got this and am happy with it so far.It comes with the temp sensor and the pc interface and seems to work fine.

I love the smell of nitro in the morning..

Bantam 6 series. I am not trying to talk u out of the charger u believe u like. I am trying to give u other choices that u might be interest in. It took me awhile and research what would best fit my needs and future use. Triton EQ 2 was what I was headed for but I believe u needed to buy the balancers seperately. On the other it does have it's own power supply. However it is not a dual charger and if u plan getting in the 90 and 700 size helis and need 8 to 12s to charge I believe it not capable of it. I even called a fellow Heli pilot and asked about the choices on the market and gave me a lot of things to think about before actually purchasing a charger.

My favorite charger is the FMA 10S Cell Pro charger. I think it is in a class of its own

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

When I bought my 4S charger from FMA for my Trex450 I never thought I would need a bigger charger. Well here it is 2 months later and I have a Knight 600e 6S and I have to get a bigger charger. So try and plan ahead even if you have no plans to get a bigger electric, I wish I would have. I firmly believe no one should get less than a charger capable of 6S or 8S.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

I didn't think I would need bigger either but with the plan on getting a 500 size I do. Thanks for all the input, however it just gives me more to think about. More research. Thanks again.
