You have an iCharger don't you Flop? How you like it?

I think it's down to the iCharger 206B or Hyperion EOS720I NET 3.

The trend in batteries suggest 10c charging within a year, so purchase a charger that can can take advantage of the trend.

I charge my Spyder 3S 2200's in about ten minutes at 5C - faster than I can drain them flying. I only need two batteries.

jholen, i have the icharger 206b and the Celpro 10S. I like the celpro a lot better because you just plug a couple packs in it and hit the button. They can be different cel packs too.

The icharger you have to setup or find a preset for each time. Also the icharger doesn't charge them up all the way for some reason. It does parallel charge a boatload of packs at once.

If you don't need to charge 6S packs I'd consider getting two of the Celpro 4Gold chargers. THey are a really good deal and even easier, just plug the pack in and off it goes.

Buzz, how many flights do you think you can get out of the packs doing that? I like your setup because it's less stuff to worry about, but I get nervous charging at those high amps and stressing the system. 2C is what I usually do and 3C in a hurry. 10C wow, I have to look into that.

I'm not sure yet, I have only 30 - 40 cycles in, but others are likely into the hundreds. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...ayflyer+spyder Please note I'm not shilling Spyder, other than David at ProgressiveRC is a good guy. A few other brands suggest 6C, and have been exhaustively tested. With a good balance charger at 5C they hardly get warm. Its convenient and appears to be cost effective.

Probably cheaper as well.

What kind of CA do you like using Cry? I've heard good things about that BSI stuff - wondering what the shop in woodinville carries.
Jon,

BSI glue is pretty much sold everywhere.

Alot of hobbyshops get the BSI stuff with their own sticker or name on it.
You can't miss the bottle graphic even when it has another company name/sticker on it. Same goes for their epoxies.

The local hobbyshops all sell BSI originated glues.

Yes, the eflite foam safe CA glue and their kicker is not soo good.

Haven't used ZAP CA or epoxy in decades. Back when I was building gliders from a box of sticks. But I still use Pacer Zip Kicker.

I hear good things about Mercury adhesives but have yet to order in any since none of the local shops carry much beyond BSI stuff.

I like the Mercury adhesives. Like Cry says though noone local sells it. Always pickup extra from 3DH when I make an order. BSI is also really good.

Steve, Cry, have you guys tried the Mercury foam safe stuff or are you talking about regular CA? The guy over here in Hood Canal now sells the foam-safe Mercury but have not tried it......

When you guys got your mercury did you also get the gay wooden tray. Come on you know you did..

the tray is a handy thing.
my ca glue collection tends to be scattered about.
If I had the tray, well I'd be organized...too bad my three tables in the garage need a day's worth of sorting and cleaning though...

I haven't tried any of the merc stuff as yet
