(Blurry picture is blurry)
So I received all the things yesterday. I honestly think I’m (mostly) done spending money on the Inductrix, save for some replacement bits as things wear out.
First, that E-Flite box is the Celectra 4-Port Charger, and is one of the three best options out there for multi-battery charging, and probably the best for a novice. It’s unreasonably bulky because it’s designed to use 4 D-Cell batteries or an optional (as in not included) AC adapter. However, the thing is fast, charges the ports independently, and even actually got my E-Flite battery that wasn’t taking a charge to work. And while at first I was frustrated with the size of the box, the fact my FPV monitor sits perfectly on top of it for charging is great.
Second, I’ve now got what I hope is enough batteries to get me through the winter. Six Nitro Nectar batteries give me enough juice to fly around the house for about a half hour. On top of that these things give WAY more punch than my old batteries did.
Third update for flight stuff today (as I won’t be flying at lunch) – I gave the wife a spin on this yesterday. Much like myself, she had a lot of difficulties flying LOS, but with a bit of coaching she was able to start zipping around the living room a bit more.
