As for what Battle Dude said. Unfortunately I think anyone in a position to make a difference thinks the same and doesn't want to ruin their retirement pot.
No 3rd world countries should have nuclear, period. I like your hydrogen storage concept as long as it's not used to develop heavy water and ends up bombs. Maybe we ought to forego this conversation, however, as I think we've now taken it way beyond RC!

Wow, we must've touched a nerve! I'd still like to see a "glow in the dark" 120!

Maybe we ought to keep it to the 120SR-N (RC)

I just have to think that nuclear powered R/C helicopters could serve a starving world--in some way or fashion.

Either way, I haven't seen an "octopus" harness that would plug into that 1 cell outlet. Most have banana plugs. You may have to rig something.

Forgive me but I guess I'm out of of touch with all these acronyms...what is JST? I don't think I want to charge multiple batteries off of one outlet....charging 4 batteries on one outlet would mean I'd only have a max amperage of .5 amps...that would make for some pretty slow charges...being able to use all 4 charging outlets would give me a lot more flexibility...now if I can just find out where to buy the connectors and pins so I can make my own charging adapters....

JST is the type of connector your 120SR, and it's battery, have.
You will use your 1cell outlet for 1cell batteries. That can be as many batteries as you want (in theory) on a proper harness.
Your charger has a max. output of 2amps. It can/should all come out the 1cell outlet.
Most recommend charging at 1C. You could charge four 500mAh batteries at 1C with your charger that puts out 2A through the 1cell outlet.
You need you find a connector to go from JST to whatever that is for your 1cell output to charge the lipo(s) for your 120SR.
This is the basic, plug-n-play method. If you want to get into funky wiring beyond that, well, go for it. I can't help with that.

The white ports look like balance ports to me... not charging ports. Normally charging only requires 2 pins... + & - ... regardless of the number of cells.

Could they be combined charge and balance ports perhaps? Clearly, I have no idea???

What's 1C? What I do know is this charger will put out 2 amps from each of it's 4 charging outlets. If I were to rig up an adapter so I could charge four 1 cell batteries on one outlet, that would split the amperage 4 ways...meaning a max charging output of .5 amps per battery, which would be too slow. If I could find a place that sells these connectors, and the pins that go in them I'd be in business...with a pin and a wire on each + and - on each of the charging outlets would give me four 1 cell charging adapters with up to 2 amps of charge available to each battery.

What is 1C??? C'mon. Enough hijacking of this 120 SR thread. A complete and thorough Lipo battery charging education can be found in myriad places on the web. Right here on RC Groups in fact is enough information to educate yourself about the basics of (safe) battery charging and use.

And here

For 5 bucks more the Thunder AC680 is a better deal than the old AC6.... it's the upgraded version...

80watts instead of 50.
6amp charge current instead of 2.2.

I was going to get one for a backup but I won't be buying from hobbypartz anymore

I guess I did get off topic...sorry...I did get the connectors I needed though...

"Hijacking" would be a little harsh. This forum is made for those who are wanting to know more and we've always been courteous.
