just came back in and checked battery , the charger is sitting at 1.3A constant , and the battery seems to be charging

theres only one channel in operation , the others just light up when the charger is switched on , i put a few tablets into each cell yesterday , the battery was my mates , and hasnt been used in quite a while , when i got it yesterday it was resding 10.6V on the multimeter

set the charger as above , with 4A timer off , and capacity cutoff off , but it dropped pretty quick to 0.9A , its showing 1.3A on the photo but by the time i had took it , it was 0.9A .... any ideas

i think if you are going down the petrol route , then noise is not an issue , there will always be someone to complain though , just the way it is

i fly only petrol now , got rid of all the messy gunky nitro stuff and never looked back , i had a few hiccups at the beginning but thats to be expected . love the sound , they may be a little on the loud side but once up in the air and throttled back a bit they aint too bad , plus you can get aftermarket exhausts if you need to get the noise down , but exhaust replacement is only part of the equasion , a lot of noise is from the prop , and the fuse vibrating like a drum skin , i pack mine out with foam to deaden it .

why pay £20 a gallon for nitro when you can get a gallon of petrol for a fiver or thereabouts . I've nevef been into electric stuff , doesnt float my boat , but thats just me
