Default RE: futaba plane battery charge time

ORIGINAL: 500 lb. koolaid man

I think I might have found the problem.

All the servo wires on the futaba receiver have black pointing to the outside, away from the sticker on the receiver. Is there any chance that the battery's black wire faces the opposite direction, toward the sticker?
On a Futaba, the negative (black) wire points the same way for battery and servos, toward the outside of the receiver. As I requested earlier, can you post the model number for the transmitter and receiver you are using. Also post any identifying marks you may have on the receiver crystal and transmitter channel. This will help us eliminate any obvious problems such as AM transmitter/ FM receiver, wrong crystal, etc.
