I was starting to get pumped about ircha, then realized I don't know how to charge all day. For you guys who don't own generators how will you charge at ircha. Will a large pb battery last awhile. thanks

Got a buddy with a generator you can bum?

You can pickup a used Honda EU1000 for less than $400.

My crew should have 2-3 generators at IRCHA.
Stop by if you need to charge up.
Look for a sign reading
'HooD HeLi'

I am sure others will also be generous. (Pack a extension cord and power supply - i am sure one of your neighbors on the flight line will not mind you plugging in.)
see you there.

If you courteously ask to bum a plug for a while I'm sure most people don't mind. They're usually using it anyway so one more charger won't hurt.

Yes offering some cash for the time/gas would be appropriate also.Regards, Brandon Bartolomucci; Team Synergy; Team Scorpion; & Team Bavarian Demon; AMA# L939231

I've flown electric-only since 2001, and just got a generator (wife actually got it for my birthday last month!). That being said, I've been to dozens if not hundreds of electric events all over the nation and always used my truck battery with the hood open and engine idling. Not the most efficient thing to do but functional.Gary Wright
