Not sure what the application is, but I wouldn't run those on 2S unless you like funny smells!

PS Really like my two iCharger 106B+ that I got from epbuddy as well. They have tons of great products for parallel charging multiple batteries on one charger as well.
Thank you for the endorsement!

The iPower units are really nice and for the money perform really well. For another source on chargers, power supplies and accessories, check out Proggressive RC:

The link will take you to their accessories page. I like the parallel cables over the parallel boards. I use the 6S parallel balance cable for all cell numbers.

The 1.7g HK-5320 is only rated at 4.2v (1S). I haven't personally used this particular servo (I bought some without realizing the 4.2v rating, but haven't used them yet). I've always heard that you shouldn't run more than the recommended voltage on a servo unless you want to drastically shorten the life of the servo. YMMV however.

The 2.2g HK-282 servo I have used, and had bad luck with on 2S, even though it is rated for 4.8v. Of the 6 of them I have, 3 of them developed severe jittering issues in the first few flights. Maybe I just had bad luck! I found the New Power 2g servos to be superior in centering and especially in resolution, and haven't had a problem with them yet. Just sharing my experiences to help others make a decision!

Can't wait to get my 28" Extra from DW! Looking forward to trying out another one of these fine planes!

Just finished my 23in micro Threlon. Hopefully it will fly half as good as the 22in juka! Too windy to test fly yet though. Can't wait

By the, about the linear servos, I think their great with plenty of movement, torque and precision but I'm not liking the tiny black hobby king servo, kinda jittery not very precise. Is there another alternate servo that would work? Im not really looking for a major soldering job though.

Dude you are going to love that thing! 22" Juka is definitely a good flyer and a 3D monster (unfortunately I'm not a good enough pilot to put it through ~all~ of the paces). 23" Threlon is not the same type of plane, but for what it is designed (pattern/precision) it is awesome! I have trouble adjusting when I fly it, cause you do a knife edge pass with the Threlon and you need almost zero (and I mean that) rudder to do it. I have trouble switching back and forth between the two. When I get out the Threlon I'll go into knife edge and throw in rudder (habit) and instantly remember when it starts heading straight up that it is not needed. =)

And I'm using the normal ultra micro connecter that is used in all the park zone and eflite models. I don't know what it's called

And for the micros, I'm running it with two single cell lipos, but I think my batteries are going out because my flight times are beginning to get lower and lower. I'm using the 160 mah nano techs, what's a good single cell high quality lipo?
