Anyway, everyone is looking for the quick fix, so the Joe Smith CG. (CG = center of gravity in case you don't know). If you read other threads, with the vast quantity of arf's (almost ready to fly planes) on the market these days, most people don't know as much about balancing their planes, so you will see comments on other threads about, they forgot the CG on this plane (they forgot it, not they forgot to tell them where to balance it at), or people just complaining that they "can't find the cg". Thus the joke of the Joe Smith CG.
o ok. lol i actually looked it up on ebay and i am pretty sure its davebloomer that told me to do that.

I like the Cellpro chargers. Programming is easy. If you can fly like that you can program a PL6/8

As you get older you have less time for hobbies. I have flown ten times this year. Hard to get better at that rate.

PL8 or PL6 are no problem to program. After a couple of days you will have it down and have the best charger there is.

I love my icharger 3010B. When I got it I hooked it to a power source and plugged in my batteries and pushed go. Pretty simple. 1000Watts and 30 AMPS is pretty sweet too. Charge 6 2200 mah 3S batteries in under 15 minutes.
