DX7 Charging Notes:

Posted 03-11-2014 at 08:11 AM by nickyd

googled notes:

16 hours charge time
My DX7 usually is at about 10.9-11.2 right when I take it off the charger..(like this morning..).. and at the end of the day.. about 7-8 flights total(2 different planes).. its at 10.4.
I agree with DGrant. The transmitter will work down to something like 9 volts, but that doesn't mean it's safe to fly at those levels. Once you get below 9.6, the drop off can be quite rapid, especially if you have a weak battery.

My initial plan was to sell my Trex 700N and keep the Rave 90 ENV and the Team Heliproz Nitro heli.

After doing a little research, I found...

As promised...So here we are, a new year, and a new month…March, but not for long! Time is flying by!

Now for a re-cap of last year;

My 6HV, Protos 500, Rave, Trex 700N, and Team Heliproz Whiplash Nitro, and my DJI F450 quad are all stored for the winter. I was trying to have the GoPro working on the quadcopter so I could shoot some nice winter videos...

My Compass 3D+ is still waiting for any type of wrenching, but that may not happen for a while....
