I think he meant finding proper batteries using their Battery Heaven tool on the HK website?

On a tiny battery charger. Just had to say that. Seriously, any good battery charger can do it. I charge them on my 400watt Turnigy. I just set the amps to whatever S and C rating I want to charge at and it does fine.

You can parallel charge these too. I sometimes charge 6 at a time on Progressive RC's parallel charging adapter.

You can buy parallel charge cables from rc-connectors and a couple other places. If you want to use the FMA PowerLab8 to charge one at a time you can buy either of the cables from Horizon: TP/PQ4S or GP/KO. FYI the charge leads fit perfectly into the PL8.

It's pretty tough. AS3X helps until it doesn't. And when it doesn't, it's very sudden. Just be prepared. Altitude is your friend. I really can't do it. Some can. It takes a lot of skill.

This is where you need the brute power to be able to accelerate straight up out of a hover. Once you get it pointing straight up, it takes very little stick movement to keep it there. Easy to overcontrol. I've found also helps to pulse the throttle up and down when in the hover. Gives more prop blast over the controls. Hope this helps.
PS I'm in the middle of making a set of weeny skis for mine.
