Sweet, might need to borrow some charging power sometime
Think we killed my charging battery when we tried charging your 4 pack,hehe. It lost a cell after that.

It's still under warranty,I just need to return it for another sometime

Well back to U-haul for an extender, probably less than an inch too short as is....it never ends!

Feel free to use generator if needed. I don't think I have my 24V supplies setup for multiple changers but I did pickup a short ext cord with 6 outlets on it

So perhaps my like for Gens Ace batteries needs to come to an end. Second heli flight of the day, fourth flight on this set of batteries, I took off and punched out, then poof. Lost complete control and the motor powered down, and the heli went in. Nothing had power anymore. Since I'm using two 5s packs, I only have one tied into the BEC since the CC BEC is much happier at smaller cell counts, and amazingly enough the pack that failed was the one that was hooked up to the BEC. Of the 5 cells, one is reading 0.00V and another was at 2.55V, the rest were at 4.16V. The other pack was fine and all cells read 4.16V. I wonder if hobbypartz will replace the pack, but according to their "warranty" page they won't replace anything if it's used.

I will second that.

Got a chance at the controls on the 104 today.
What a great plane. I was shaking the whole time; it was a great experience though. Thanks, Weaser for the opportunity to fly that awesome plane.

Even though I was 20 stories high the plane looked as big as a Jumbo jet.

Chip Hyde was at EVA (dunno why), and he was flying someone's orange 104 gasser. It was impressive. I really need something bigger than 47"...
