Thinking of buying the Thunder AC6 anything I should know about bit?? Also will this balance my parkzone batt's. I know that I have to get a banana ec3 adapter. Just wondering about the balance lead.

Sometimes people here wish for new people to do some research on their own prior to giving them information. There are alot of "sticky" threads at the very top of each forum that address the most common answers that are asked.
Since you are a fellow WA resident, here is your answer.
Given that your parkzone lipo's use the JST-XH balance connector, you will find that a GREAT many different balance/chargers use this as a standard connector, or a standard supplied 'board' in cases where they use a dongle arrangement.
The Hobbypartz Thunder AC6 uses this dongle/board arrangement and comes supplied with an JST-XH balance board, so you are good to go.
As you purchase other lipo's that use different balance taps, such as thunderpower and hyperion, you will just need to purchase different boards, which usually range from $4 to 6 bucks depending on where you buy it.
Do yourself a favor, don't buy any more Parkzone batteries. You'd do far better to save the coin and buy other less expensive brands.
Also, ditch the EC3 connectors. Use a deans or perhaps the newer XT60 connectors. Those are great.

just got mine and used the balance block with the stock balance tap from the PZ battery. Had to buy a jumper to do my TP batts. Easy to use charger. Took 60 mins to balance charge the 1300ma PZ battery at pre-set .9amp.

I have had mine since Oct. no problems and I've used it on every kind of battery. A more extensive manual is found here... http://www.hota-exp.com/product_info...2d5m20c0cbnah7
Hope this helps.
