Accucel 6 is a variable rate charger. You could dial it up and down as you like. Conventional wisdom is to charge Lipo at 1C (safest). In this case 1C for a 600mAh battery is 0.6A. And that will take approx. an hour to charge.

But, I usually charge NanoTech at 2C, or 1.2A per cell. Theoretically charge time is 30 mins. Realistically, it's more like 40 minutes, because a smart charger with slow down the charge rate at the end of the cycle.

For two 600's, if you use a parallel cable, you should be using 2.4A for 2C, or 1.2A for 1C, etc.

Well, AFAIK, the V911 is not designed to flip.

I don't own a V911 Tx, but I was under the impression that it doesn't have a working right shoulder button. I was surprised to see that it actually do something. But no, I don't think you could flip the X1 using the V911 Tx. You could do everything else.

To flip an X1 and have better range, you should use a V929/V949 Tx or equivalent.

It flies really heavy, understandably. And the wind, forget about it. But it does fly.

basic trim question

when I adjust the trim the effects aren't that obvious to me, so I'm trying to see if it's working properly.

If it moves forward in hover.

Would you move the forward/backward trim on the left or right of the transmitter?

if moving left or right in hover (flat) would you move the left/right trim on the left or right side of transmitter.

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks, Ron

Right side for both of those. The left stick is throttle and rudder so the trims on the left are for the throttle and rudder.

Ok thanks that makes sense. Does it matter if you are in mode 1 or 2?

mode on the screen refers to dual rates not real mode one and two. If the throttle is on the left you have a mode 2 controller.

Heli Pad,

Yes we sell these locally and at all the events we attend. www.gorillabobsrc.com
I just got some NanoTech 300's in but they are 2 cell packs. They would be a good size for the X1 if they were single cells!
