Once I get into 12S setups I'll be looking at 2 bigger chargers. I'm sure this PSU will not be big enough for me. If a 80% discharge lipo (3-6s) takes over 20min to charge... its too slow for me.

ems take 3 working days + weekend (2 days).

If the order is shipped out on Thursday I get the goods on Monday afternoon... latest Tuesday Morning. if its sent out any other day other then Thursday it can take 7 days. Most Items I buy I cant wait more than a week so I pay the extra $$$ to get it here. As I dont have a credit card setup on my paycrap account its takes up to 6 days already to transfer my cash. if I was to use link a credit card I get charged cash advancement fees, international transfer fees and a crappy exchange rate.... I guess I'm not that desperate for my parts

Just had a couple good flights, head has lower vibes now than before the crash for some reason. I replaced the bearings so maybe that has something to do with it. Pretty sure the cause of the crash was the rod jamming in the guides now so no more hard manuvers will I replace it with a CF one.

Also I just realized I could make my own CF rudder control rod using some threaded link rods and CF tubing. Just cut it to the right length and epoxy a short link rod into each end.

That time frame is faster then I expected... I actually paid more for ems shipping then I did the power supply. $24 + $27 to ship ems. Ha ...thinking you may be a little spoiled. I would be happy as a clam to charge 5000mah in 20 min.

what type of dampeners are you running? Are you re-using the same main blades form the crash? what did you replace from the crash?

Does anyone have a used canopy they want to sell? maybe has a ding here or less than stellar paint? I ordered a Fusono but its going to take quite a while to get it and I want to get one for practicing on.

accucell 6 50w.... gets me 2.2A takes like 1.5 hrs on a 6s 5000mah li-po. lol... I was growing old waiting for batteries to charge. I hooked my eco-6-10 up to a car battery ( dont have my power supply box yet ) for a test run on a 6s 3000mah set it for 5A charge. Took about 15 min. was nice considering in the past it took a lil over half an hour with accucell6.

I was never that way! I always let the (cool in my book) kids sit at our table. I think that's why guys always wanted to fight me. Funny they never would show up.

lol think "leather" tie!!!! Reminds me of the Beatles in their early years.

I too was catholic, but our school was poor so we had hard wearing poly/cotton ties that were like cardboard.

Whats prep? Pre-school or junior?

Prep was the rich kids that wore all the expensive close, drove the rich cars and thought their shLt didn't stink lol!

Our dress code for guys was button up shirt, slacks, and a tie. When I first started High school the girls had uniforms, but by the end the girls could wear just about anything.
