Okay, Okay, I just told the wife that we are going tomorrow. Lord this has been killing me since I have been reading all these threads on this bird. I did eight flights on my 130X this morning and now the wind is blowing about 35-40 miles an hour but not inside the house where I can really use the Nano.

Thanks, I will keep that in mine if they don't have any tomorrow. But I think he will because most flyer there are plank flyers.

I would strongly suggest you don't use the stock charger. It is putting out twice the amps needed to charge these little packs. If you want your batteries to last as long as possible, use the old MCPx charger (minus the middle connector) at .1a. My packs are as good as they were new after more than 20 cycles so far.

The HobbyTown in San Marcos, (northern San Diego) had it last Friday. The guy said the shipment just came in so he hasn't had a chance to put it out. Ampdraw in San Diego said all the BNF are going to people who preordered. Discount Hobby in San Diego has a number of them on the shelf. I walked in and grabbed one yesterday. Just put a few batteries through her this morning. My first CP. Only owned mainly clone FP helis that I've modded and more recently, the v929.

Flies nice. Dialed in -10 expo for indoors. I like it sensitive. Helps to keep her off the funitures and walls. At the +30 expo the manual suggested, it was too loose and slow to react.

About to put another set through her now.

~TIME WARP~
you can adjust the output on the 4 port celectra chargers

Open up the charger and turn the pot for each port down two notches

I havent opened up the single chargers used by blade but i bet they have an adjustment pot as well.

300mA charge rate is fine for the included batteries, which list a 3C charge rate (450mA). I've been charging EFlite 150mAh and TP 160mAh 25C batteries at 300mAh and have not had any problems with shortened life.

Now, with the old 12/14C EFlite batteries, 300mAh was too much and did shorten their life (not that they were worth using when new).
