RE: led lights

A friend of mine has a set, his plug into the RX just like a servo. I think he uses the retract port and can turn them off and on from the TX. LED's draw very little current so that is not a...

RE: Charge 3.7 LI-ION using Turnigy accucel 6

If it is a single cell it would not need balancing. Nothing to balance it to. The other two contacts could be some type of safety check for heat or rate of charge or something like that. Possibly...

RE: Best place to buy depron
