I would call it a fast charge. I only use a c/10 charge. 1.2 A is 6 times more amps. It's not something I would do.

With nimh you gotta watch the heat they produce when charging
I would not charge a battery I care for, more than 1C rate

if you charge them to fast or overcharge them they will most likely explode
they should be treated like lipo's when charging

spending time, paying attention

+1 on the Hangtimes site. I fast charge my 2000 NiMh packs at a blinding 750ma as discussed on that site. We sure are spoiled with LiPos. But NiMh still have their place.

Here is a copy of my Triton manual. In the back (second to the last page) it has a chart with excellent info on battery charging.

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

I would go by the battery manufactures guidance. IMO some of the charge rates are just too fast for many of the NiMh cells currently in production. Back on the day, the NiCad cells were a tad bit heartier and could stand up to those faster charge rates.
