...the engine is actually pretty smooth and quiet. As the engines get smaller they usually get a higher pitch and a little more assaulting... this was a pleasant surprise, very nice.

There's no other sound in the video to use as a reference... so it's hard to gauge.

Sorry, I just don't care to...with my charging set-up, I can see everything I want to see I.E. how the cells are balanced, how many mAH I put in each one, and besides, I only charge at 1C anyway......and the Hypersion Chargers all do "synch mode charge and discharge,...so, I'm happy how I charge things
Here is a picture of my charging set-up....two Super DUOs and one DUO lll. The DUO lll will soon be movable to a case I am setting up to charge at the field if I want to. I have another of the "Mean Well" SE-600-15 power supplies, like the one on the bar next to my "guard tank" (it shoots "airsoft" pellets)... The two "Mean Well" PSP-1000-24 power supplies are run off of two separate circuits, and the SE-600-15 shares a circuit with the left PSP-100-24...

and...yes, this is in my home, but when I'm charging packs, I stay there and cruise the RCG forums...

Like I said....don't have to.... Parallel charging was started by people that didn't have enough chargers to charge everything they needed to charge at one time...I do...

I grabbed a couple 13x6 protek to try only to realize I needed a prop reamer to use them. It seems the holes they have in them are smaller than a standard prop adapter. I'll have to order a metric prop reamer with my next order. The quality of them looks to be very good. We'll see how they fly.

Very nice flying Aaron. My 2 yr old loved it. He watches all the flying vids with me. Anyway he laughed out loud when you did that first high speed KE pass. I have to admit I laughed out loud too
