    I do have a single slot battery charger and a mondo 3s battery to run it on. I use this to quick charge my 2s batteries to keep flying if needed.

    ..... but you have me thinking now. I can use ac to charge the 3s battery and radio overnight. Plug it into the wall and boom. The various aircraft batteries I would use the multicharger and only worry about loading up the lipo bag for in the field.

    My only red flag is I'm charging a big lipo in an enclosed area. I would want to monitor that better I think.

    This is definitely an idea worth revisiting again though and thank you Jeff :)[​IMG]

    Ohw well! Here's some more parkflying fun :)

    I would agree... she is a fun little bang around bird.

    Even though it has a more dampened down... more docile type behavior than a power house multirotor, it's been my goto craft if I want to go out and "try something", ...or explore a new area.

    It was my jumping off craft to really start pushing myself in angle mode, find my perspective from inside a camera lens. Knowing I won't need to keep a bag of propellers, tools and toothbrush to scrub out the equipment when I "try something" again allowed me to relax and get a good feel for things.

    This one was a good tip Dutch.

    I am also forcing myself to NOT buy the next best thing right now I've had my eye on the kk220 and it's new upgrade but I also understand

    .... the next, next best thing is only around the corner again. I'll wait to we get a little closer to spring. I am well into the winter season now.

  5. :D I actually use mine to test things (like FPV goggles / receivers) with.. And indeed to scout new spots, and it's basically the only quad I fly over pavement..

    Have you seen this video by the way? That Might be a nice step up I think?

    Yes... I do plan to order the v2 after the holidays too. My 2s batteries were already showing wear, shorter flight times. Getting tired essentially.

    It would appear that they've improved video by updating the camera. Let's hope they added osd of some fashion this time.

    Two things come to the top on this.

    Lower kv motors, higher input voltage will give up a little better torque when trying to catch the copter in a flip or a dive. 2s tends to struggle at this sometimes. I would see an oscillation I could never exactly tune out. I blamed it on the prop guards under certain conditions.

    Secondly you should see longer flight time on 3s running a lower kv. I averaged just over 2.5 minutes per flight using 2s and really am starving for a little more flight time.

    I'm eager to see your take on the v2 Dutch ... ...your timing is good

  7. :D yes sir.. all very true things.. more voltage is good in a lot of ways :)
    And yep: the new version does have an OSD :)

    Ohw and: I actually did Not take my own advice.. I ordered a ET125 V2 (2S).. mostly because I want to be able to compare it to my ET115 v1...

    Flew mine at Dan's this weekend...he has a better front yard...The difference in video quality on Dutch's vs Tom's is quite noticeable....really leaning towards that camera upgrade...I keep telling myself I don't need it...but it is a big difference...
