up date Goldberg ELECTRA

Well,it's been in storage for years and except for a layer of dust,it's in great shape. I've been thinking about taking another attempt at electric flight and thought that with the newer motors and batteries,the ELECTRA may perform better that the combination that came with it back in the day.I've noticed that OS engines has gotten in the game and there are a tone of others out there.Not having an electronics back ground,I need to be pointed in the right direction.This includes charges as well.So guys! Point me! What will make this old bird perform better then when new and what's new in economical/dependable chargers for lipos?

I just picked up this charger. Quite happy with it. Needs a hefty power supply.

Electric flying is pretty much seeing how close to a dead short you can run without setting it on fire.
