    That was scarery. Setting up the charger for the first time in a few months. Everything is setup the packs are charging and now it's a waiting game.

    Attached are screen shots from the revolectrixs bump controller Bluetooth app. Once the phone is connected I can monitor the charger as it is charging. One thing I have to do is get my profiles organized. I have one for my solar bank and one for my 30V household power source. Right now it's set to solar while on house hold.

    He's back :). Long time. I asked Tony about your solar panel charger set up about a month ago. I like it so much that I'm going to make one. If I was you, I would fly your X3 first before taking out the Goblin just in case. The X3 is cheaper to fix if a OOPS happens.

    Well the X3 still has the heat issue. I have yet to solve. I have not been in the mood to spend money on a new esc motor and batteries . I think that's what it's going to take to fix that.

    I just did 2 flights and I have a video update on the solar rig. Just give me some time today to process the video and upload it.

    That charging information is fantastic, I see it has IR information as well, that's the issue I have getting accurate IR information.

    The IR data is generated during charge. Most will say it's not the most accurate. The best option is an ESR meter. Thats supposed to be the most accurate.
