Default RE: Nicad Cycler... how much current is too much?

FL350, one thing nobody mentioned is the fact that the connecting wire on receiver packs is very small. This is the limiting factor on the charge/discharge rate most of the time. While a receiver pack may give up 4 amps during a short discharge operating several servos during flight, a constant 4 amp load will melt the covering on the wiring and the connectors. Play it safe and stay at less than 1 amp.
