Default chargers- simple question

I just bought some hitec flight packs to go with my futaba 6xas. Can I use the futaba charger to charge the hitec onboard battery?

Good question. I would like to know the answer myself. I bought a HiTec flightpack to go with my T6XAS. I made shure the flightpack had Futaba plugs. I think as long as the plugs are compatible there is no reason why you could not charge your battery.

Absolutely, there's no problem at all. But DONT ever try to hcarge a JR transmitter on a Futaba charger, or vice versa. The polarities are opposite.

You must be aware fo the capacities, if they are larger than your original batteries, they will take longer to charge with the standard charger.
