I can charge all 6 of my batts for the Peaks in about 30 minutes with the Powerlab 6!

Yesterday I had the Peaks, PZ P47 and Trex 450 to "Play" with:

5 X 3S 2200 Batts for rex
3 X 3S 2650 for P47 but I steal a flight or "two" with the 4S 2200s I have for the Peaks. Crazy Speed!!!!!

So after 14 Batts and 2hrs at the "Feild" (Grocery Store) it's off to charge!

6 X 4S packs charging at once in parrallel takes 30 minutes, after they're done, time to charge the 3S... 3 X 2650s and 3 X 2200 takes 30 minutes as well.

While this is happening, I get to play with the Blade Nano CPx!!! I have 12 of the little 1s batts that I get about 3-4 minutes of flight time each but I only flew 6 during that charging time.

Back off to the "Field" with 12 more batts! This time got 6 flights in with the Peaks! NO WIND AT ALL and the weather was nice considering the time of year! My hands didn't get cold not once.

2hrs later... back to the house to charge and crab a bite to eat! Wife calls and ask how I was feeling,....I told her better and I was just getting a bite to eat and just lounging....

This time only charged the six packs for the Peaks and headed right back out! 4 Flights with Peaks and 2 with P47 and called it quits for the day!

Yeah right!!!!! Still somehow managed to get 12 more Nano flights in...would have been more but motor died on me...I wonder why? so had to feed the need with about an hour of RealFlight!!!

Boy I thought I was bad going to the field with 5 planes (Peaks, 48" 3DHS Edge, Tech one Yak, and 2 64 mm EDFs (stinger and airfield f18) with a 50 cal ammo box full of 3 and 4 cells and an AC 680 w parallel board hooked up to the car battery. I joked with the boys the other day that all I need now is my tent and camping gear and I'd be set for the week!
Good on you. Keep burning lipos!

It's the dynam......even has the same motor and everything. Tried buying it to see what the shipping cost would be.....it's only stocked in the AUS wharehouse and when I tried to order it...it said "unable to ship to USA" so I guess it's only for the Aussies right now.

I'm sure shipping to USA would make it way too much compared to Nitro or Grayson.

If it gets stocked in the usa wharehouse.....it would be a good price if shipping was reasonable.

This is one of the Best flying airplanes I have ever had.....would buy another in the future....already bought two.

Grayson Hobbies carries the Dynam WACO maybe we can persude them to carry Pitts.
Agree this is a great plane and great value, ready to Miaden WACO when time and weather permits. Both just barely fit in my short bed Taco.

I just pulled the trigger on this one from Grayson..(even tho NitroPlanes has it for 10% off this weekend)! Prefer to help out the smaller business folks.

I have the Dynam GrandCruiser and their "TurboJet", also. Looks as though this one is another WINNER from the Dynam folks

Great info in this thread...thanks to all

I actually found that I love FPV flying so I moved my FPV stuff over to a Sky Surfer that I just bought. And bought a nice pan/tilt and Range Video OSD with GPS, auto pilot ect. My Peaks will go back to being my 3d plane.
