Yes, that charger does have a cycle feature. You can program it to cycle "X" number of repetitions. It will work for either radio. The best part about it, it is an intelligent charger, so once it detects peak charge, it will shut itself down and protect your batteries.

Re: Radio Charging

I'm not sure if its Futaba or JR but one of them won't let you cycle from the charging port, its protected. I had to remove the battery and plug it directly to the charger.

Re: Radio Charging

As I posted earlier I would suspect it was the Futaba due to the diode. If you still have the Tx and some determination, (and would like to leave the pack internal) you could locate it and use the fuse method as I did. From what I gather it's there originally as polarity protection since some radios have the pin polarity opposite to theirs.

I was luck in that I had access to micro fuses. Just did a flub last week and blew the last one, (don't ask) so had to install a larger replacement for now.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!
