Re: suggest me a battery

I would go for that charger. It's a great charger. I always say, pay a little more now, or a lot later. That charger will be good for a long time.

As for the battery, an extra $10 to go from 20C to 50C is a no brainer for me.

That much are those packs??

I would look into the SMC line. They can be had locally for a real good price.

Re: suggest me a battery

As for the onyx 245 I have the 235 and like it, but looking to get the hitec x4 mode so I can charge more batteries at once.
