I haven't worried about my battery in a year. I think I worried every day about the NiMH battery. It was like watching the gas gage on a big block muscle car.
Yes indeed! That's the conclusion I quickly came to as well.
Spectrum did a poor job of including those NiMH packs with an internal charger that doesn't automatically shut down at peak charge. A bit puzzling really.
The LiPO pack should have been in the kit instead, cost notwithstanding.
But since that's what I now have and still using - I need to know how to effectively deal with that NIMH pack.
