I understand that you'll get a bad apple sometimes because of it being a Monday or Friday. However, the manufacturer must be willing to replace a $2000 plane if they don't have better Q.C.

Ahhh........when you were telling me about this on the phone it didn't click. But I get it now. You'll be using one 6s pack and one 2s pack to make 8s total. I was confused......but I got it now!

Jay,
I should be picking the Extra300 up this week coming up!!
Then we can go over it to be sure everything is in good working order before I maiden her. It's got about 50 flights however not under my belt. In the mean time I wait patiently to pick her up since it has been a month.

Yeah....let me know when you have it, and I'll help you get it setup. Also for chargers, I'd look at getting a something like this, or at minimal the regular Cellpro10s. Roger is a good guy, but he doesn't know a whole lot about electric flight.

If you have unlimited funds, then definately get the charger Safety recommended. Ive had this charger for allmost a year. It works like a champ for 1/4 the price.

If you have never been to the Hobbyking website...STOP!...do not click the link. Its a tad addicting.
