That's like when someone gets accused of being racist and says "But I have a black friend."

Bah, until you start charging your batteries like this instead of using a gasoline powered generator, or electricity generated from oil/gas/coal/nuclear, the "enviromentally friendly" argument doesn't hold water.

I tried that but I was getting too much static discharge off of the belt from the rear tire. It was glitching my electronics real bad...

Electrics work just great for me, reason why,
I live 500 miles north west of the nearest hobby shop by jet only. So shipping nitro cost a pile of bucks for me, hazmate shipping by cargo plane,
No roads, our gas for the cars are $8.15 a gallon,
Got tired of buying a case, 50 bucks hazemate and 50 bucks shipping the case,
Right now I have my FBL 90 electric size bird setup for 1700 rpms , 15 min flight time of great nitro power, what I call right in the middle of nitro and gas powered,
And no oil over everything,
But I do miss running nitro just because of my plane days

You can't start a nitro heli without an electric starter, so therefore electric rules.
Don't know about that one, I have a pull cord on one of mine

If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

28 bucks a gallon and worth every penny.
