What do you and him have,20watt chargers ?
Take a whole 25 mins to charge four 6S packs then im out the door..
300 watts to be exact; I fly on 12S (Not 6), and I charge in pairs for my split packs, and I seldom if ever charge over 1C (6.6 Amps). Typ. Charge time for each split pack is 45 minutes * 4 split packs (8 packs) for a total charge time of 3 hours. Since I have other batteries that I charge on different chargers, I charge them all up along-side the splits. All-in-all by the time I get my Rx batteries charged for the nitros, and elec, the 130X the scalers, its 3 to 4 hours of time.

Ban the Ban.

That is considerably louder than an electric of equivalent size. And, the electric will have considerably more power, too.
So what?
How is that even remotely on topic?

Go post E crap in E threads.

I literally never use the word literally right.

If you choose to charge slow that on you,not electric helis..Im not talking about charging one 6S pack,im talking about two..Takes me a whole 12-13mins to charge "two" 6S packs at 17A for my "12S setup"..

Im interested in what Mc posted..Look at that fuel tank when he lands ..

I charge that way because..

1. I dont care to charge batteries that hot inside my home
2. IMHTGO charging packs that hot reduces their "useful" lifespan. Anyone I ever knew that charged that hot was always replacing their packs, so I have no intention of risking costly batteries in such a way; whether they are supposedly "rated" for 5C rates or not. Right now, I am flying on some split packs that are 2 months shy of 3 years old; still going strong.
3. So what about doubling up more packs to the parallel board? I dont do that either, because different batteries of various ages and characteristics dont charge the same.

+1 on the gasser!

I'll start by saying I tried electric and went back to nitro. Electric powered either fixed or glow reminds of driving an electric vehicle, it is dull. The only reason we have electric anything is the cost of glow fuel and the PNP mentality of new comers' into the hobby.
The local club in my area seems to have gravitated to electrics and I believe this is out of laziness another factor that makes electric so inviting. I won't go that way but if anything majority always wins out.

Hose clamp on your V Bar?
That's a problem...There has to be SOME kind of buffer between the heli and the gyro sensors.
Usually,a single layer of 3M tape is fine.
Otherwise,you have a build issue.
I utilize the Milton mod with great success on my two nitros. Mostly there for my satisfaction that oil wont un-adhere the 3M at some point and the heli go ape**** in mid air.

Yea, I've used the Milton mod on my Srimok for 4 years. It Works really well. It helps to compress the zeal tape I use.

It's said "history repeats itself".......mmmm what was here first? The wheel, sliced bread, or a lipo battery! I think it was NITRO! Look at it like an old muscle car perspective! Classic is always "the in".

There is no such thing as up, it's all out...

I have never really left nitro. I have two 90's and this year I added a 600 electric. To be honest, I like both. They each have their place. At the club I mostly fly nitro, at home or at the park I fly the electric. I plan on getting a 700 size electric in the very near future.
