Hey guys,

I just purchased a heli that uses a life battery for the rx and stuff. I have a Hitec X4 charger, which is pretty much the same as the turnigy brand chargers.

The specs say it can charge a life, but when you hit the "batt type" button, it scrolls through Lipo, NIMH, NiCd, PB, and then I think "user setup". I don't see the life battery option and how to set up charging. I have never dealt with Life batteries before

Can anyone fill me in so when the heli gets here I can rock and roll out to the flying field.

Fly it like your stole it!!!!!

Ok so I figured out how to get the charger set to life...but one more question.

Is the charge rate the same as with Lipo. The life is a 2cell 6.6v 2100mah. Do I charge at 1C(2.1amps) like the lipo battery, or is it different for life. Any input would be great

1C is plenty. its only 2100 mah so even at 1 amp it will charge fast .
