Default Futaba FG-8 super LiIo 2S 7.4 V/ 2800 mAh

Hello,

I recently bought Super-8 Tx FG with battery above. I received the battery charger in the box. The question is how to charge the battery. Automatically or have to follow in time and stop the process after a certain time. What would be the battery charging time?

Thanks for your support.
Regards

The Futaba 8FG transmitters imported into North America use NiMH battery packs, and not Lithium battery pack. We'd not have information about using Lithium battery packs in that unit. You may want to discuss your difficulty with the seller of your system.

Hello,

I found the information, maybe someone has need.

Place the Lithium Ion transmitter battery in the transmitter as normal and connect
the plug connector.
Note:
Make sure tht the connector cable is not very twisted or kinked!
To charge the lithium ion transmitter battery plug in the No 8298 mains charger
mentioned above(green LED comes on) and then connect the charger plug to
the charger socket in the transmitter (LED turns red = charging). Only once fully
charged (green LED again) remove the transmitter charging cable and finally
remove the charger plug from the 230V mains.

Regards

Dear Bax,

Futaba has no recommendation. You can, of course, install any battery pack at your own risk. Difficulties caused by the battery pack installation would not be covered under Futaba's warranty.
