Default DX7 Battery voltage

What should the transmitter battery voltage read on a full charge? Is the charge bar suppose to be full? I had mine on charge for 2 days and the bar is at 3/4 reading 11.1V. This doesnt seem right.

If you read the instruction, it takes 30 + hours to charge the first time

you can plug in that charger and leave it on a week - it will harm nothing -
the charger is below the 1/10 level typical for these cellas as slow charge -
I use nothing but the little charger which came with the DX7-- left on now for overnite or a day or so I see 11.5 v surface level
the friggn radio will fly 8 hours on a charge so the charge setup -to me is perfect - charge whenever for however long - you won't harm the cells.
I hope my new JRx9303 has same cells and charger -

mine shows 11.5 - 11.4 just after charging over night, i think my charger is 110ma.

after 5 sessions of 12 minutes in the air today its down to 10.5, so thats 1 hour flight, plus pit and taxi time

G'day Mate,
As Dick said you have a looong way to go, I get about 12 hours out of a charge, from the DX7.
Remember the battery has a nominal voltage of 9.6, is flat at 8.8 volts, stop flying at 9 volts.
The DX7 uses about 108 Mah. That takes a long time to flatten a 1500 Mah battery.
