Actually I would like to try a n Addiction X. I flew an Ultimate AMR and liked that, just too expensive. Katana MX and other stuff too light.

I love my pl8. I think the main differences are that the 6 will only charge up to 6s and 1000 watts.....no problem on the 6s limit.....BUT the 8 goes up to 1344 watts....34% mo power....faster balance charging of multiple packs....of course it still maxes out at 40 amps on 24 volt power....so for 6s packs...you end up charging at 6.66 amps into a full paraboard of 6 packs......limited by the 40 amps which comes out to just over 1000 watts anyway....so not MUCH difference unless you really want to charge 7s or 8s packs I suppose......then you'd end up "watt-limited".

I'd buy another PL8 or a PL6...both are very nice....

Cross asking from the 48" SV Thread...

How do you guys orient your Futaba Rx antennas in the SV? There is CF along the bottom, middle and top of the fuse which means that in the recommended 90 degrees configuration one antenna will touch a CF rod and the another will run parallel alongside one....

Could a tip of an antenna be right by a canopy magnet?

Thanks!

I don't have an SV, but I do have a ton of 3DHS birds, and on the 48" epp ones, one of my antennas was usually right by a magnet on the hatch and I never had a problem (and I am a futaba guy).

ok, at least settles the magnet bit, thanks!

Now I just need someone with an SV or another 3dhs Plane which has 3 CFs on the fuse sides to confirm if they put an antenna along side them...

The PL8 can discharge 100w, the PL6 is limited to 50w. That's if you discharge hooked up to a power supply using the internal resistance. If you regeneration discharge back into a deep cycle both can discharge just as much as they can charge.

I have a PL6, I love it. I'm going to be getting a second charger this coming summer so I can charge more lipos simultaneously, it will either be a PL6 or a PL8, probably another 6.
