Matt,

I'm luvin my TH Extra Slick.

My only problem is that I'll feel guilty about getting another TH bird while this one's still going strong.......and try as I may, I can't seem to kill it!

I guess it would be a trademark violation to use this as fuselage art.........

Dave

Yeah, just wait, then you'll be wanting a charger that can handle even more batteries.

Yeah after my hanger got larger so did my chargers. Jboy parallel charging is your friend. With that many chargers you could be doing at least 30 packs if you're not already.

Haven't gotten to 30 packs at once yet. I think I would need bigger power supplies, plus I like to balance charge all my batteries at 1C. I'm happy with 11 at once - takes me about the same amount of time to recharge all the batteries as it does to finish the repairs on the planes.

You must be really hard on your TH planes then mine always just need more batteries. Of course as I type this my Pitts has a slight tear near the motor mount. Hit the side of the building at work half an hour ago. Haha. Got in 5 flights so far today though. Last one was in a pretty good breeze so might be done till the breeze dies off this evening.

Yes, I am very hard on my Crack Pitts - once went through 8 props before I had to stop because the motor mount and big chunks of the front fuse began tearing away from the rest of the plane. I fly it mostly in the front yard/driveway, where it spends a lot of time over concrete and asphalt. I also live on the side of a hill, so the wind really gets going. The house blocks some of it, but creates a lot of turbulence. Low 3D practices in these conditions usually ends with a need to do a Welders repair, which takes some time to cure.

I'm new to the TH brand, so this is the only TH model that I have. Based on my experience with the Pitts, though, I don't think it'll be long before I have other TH models. The Crack Yak and 3DBuster look very interesting to me.

I have two 4-port chargers and three 1-port chargers:

Hitec X4
Thunder T-6 Multi-Lipo charger

Hitec X1
Thunder 1220
Thunder AC680

I started with the X1 and AC680 1-port chargers, but it took forever to get all my batteries charged, so I got the Hitec X4. The Thunder T-6 Multi was added to get more batteries charged at once and the Thunder 1220 was added for its internal resistance measurement capability plus the ability to go to 12S eventually.

Impressive lineup of chargers Jboy. Got the ac680 and t6 too, good chargers for the price. Been eyeing the 1220 for later use. If I go bigger planes and packs.

got the pitts done, just waiting for my motor to come back. Is it normal for the wings to twist a little bit when you ailerons are moved?
