Big guns baby! Depends how fast you wanna charge your battery packs.... i would look for a 400w capable charger and higher volt supply unless you like dead car batteries

Great flying with you today newjak, glad I got a taste of gliding, watching the plane float up is pretty cool ...later it started to rain just when I gave the P51 a nice Nanotech boost

I just ordered the Icharger 308 Duo from Buddy RC. I like the fact that they warranty the chargers in house. Anything goes wrong, they swap it out...no questions asked! Plus, they threw in a free paraboard and free shipping!

Added the lynx tail servo kit to my blade 130x.... sweet! No more buzzing stock servo!!! That is great feature alone. I reduced the travel to 85 percent until I test fly it centered up nice with the stock push rod and i added a stock support too

I'm going to wait for your review before I make a decision on a new charger

To celebrate the end of winter last week in Massachusetts . I took 2 old crap lipos givin to me and strip, cut the leads, hooked up both with the negative and positive wires from each and ended the life of them.... make sure you wear gloves and find a snow or sand pile. It is fun finding the more stronger pack this way (bigger pop) and satisfying . ... i got some old 12c parkzone striker packs on the chopping block next

I am going to add to my glider collection.

This will probably replace my Dimona.

Just make sure you triple check your setup before your maiden. My first attempt at fbl flight ended in a tip over. Ruined a nice set of blades.

I ended up pulling the cyclic links off and tightening the up 3 full turns to get some of the positive pitch out of the whole setup, with the motor leads off and 50% throttle and gyro active while setup.... I was eyeballing without the blades on it and the blade grips seem so dam close to 0 pitch.... the dfc arms are crap from the start and I measured them with my caliper to make sure they are the same length... pics soon with this 450 machine but now my next goal is using my digital pitch gauge to truly tell whats going on

Flight conditions were very good today. I got in a few 30 min + flights with my Frankenglider. I could have stayed airborne longer but my neck was sore from looking up that long. I might do it again tomorrow morning. The forecast is for similar conditions.
