Hi Douglas. First, thanks for the like. About the charger, the TGY 420 looks very simple and hardy, but it doesn't persuades me very much, for that kind of money I like better the Hobbyking ECO SIX 80W 6A 2~6S Battery Balance Charger AC/DC w/PSU (Id: 9418000001), or IMAX B6 Charger/Discharger 1-6 Cells (GENUINE)(Id:IMAXB6) or Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charge (Id: ACC6). I think these are more powerful and versatile, even more with the first you won't need to get a power supply.
Qs8006 Switching from Li/ion 1800 mAh batt pak to Turngy 2250mAh 4S 65C with XT60 plug. Question: Should I just purchase HK Male XT60 to Female deans (T) Connector OR cut off the XT60 plug and solder on the old T connector? Also the QS comes with cheap Balancer, any suggestions?
Isn't a good idea to cut the battery wires, better get the adapter or modify the speed controller connetion. In other hand, if you are sure this is your hobby, then is time to get a good balancer/charger.
Hi ALESSANDRO, you should consider switching for T to XT60. The main reasons being that the XT60:
1- can handle higher current - rated at 60 amps
2- much easier to solder - the pins have a concave design which holds the melted solder better, both pins are the same orientation so no need to turn over to solder the next tab
3- easier to connect a disconnect
These are just a few things that I have personally experienced. I have since changed out all my plugs or bought adapters.
Hi, I just bought my first HK plane, the F6F Hellcat and noticed that they don't use Dean Plugs. All of my batteries have Deans connectors and I want an adapter that will work. The Hellcat has bullet plugs - a male and a female whereas this adapter looks OK from the Deans side (ie. female) but has only male on the XT60 side. HELP! Is there something wrong with the battery connector on the Hellcat?
