...still scared of the scary sharks that lie beneath.lol...

You guys may get your hooks in me yet

Got a 450 heli on the way...That's a big step for me guys

2200mAh 3S Lipos are the scariest I've had in a long time.

I'm heading out on a 400 mile round trip tomorrow to pick up an Avant E Aurora...It'll be some sleepless nights deciding on whether or not to buy packs for that behemoth.

But for now I'll get a little charging practice with a 450...Hard to imagine charging a Lipo for every single flight.lmao....

Practice run...

That's why I take 8 charged batteries...if all else fails break out the nitro between packs.

True...no different than filling up with nitro between flights, just takes a bit longer.

But you charge them at home when you're not doing anything else.

Then just go to the field and fly...takes about 1 minute to change batts between flights

I usually get over the nerves after about two minutes of the first flight of the day but I still take a few minutes between flights...Sometimes an hour since I fly at home and don't have to go anywhere.

Except when I had a 130X....I'd fly 7 packs back to back

I still have those 7 packs...I need to get rid of them or buy something that uses the....Hmmmm....

I don't wipe down the nitro either...It just doesn't get messy like people claim they do.

A little maybe but it all dries off in flight and it's no worse after 10 flights than it is after the first.

I clean it good when I have to take it apart for something.

Yeah, that's a little different...I'm always more nervous when others are around...which is pretty much all of the time.

I would be lonely flying by myself.

I think I just liked cleaning mine off back in the day

I can imagine...I get so nervous I can't even control the heli when I try to video a flight.
I feel like I'm putting on a performance even though I try to convince myself that nobody is watching and nobody will see the video if I don't want them to.

I watch my videoed flights and can't believe how sloppy they are compared to flights without a camera around.

Ernie, I never thought I'd see this coming.

Having a vivid recollection of your previous posts, I am confident in both your understanding of Lipo charging and how well you adapt to electrics.

Well done.
