I am getting ready to buy a real Transmitter and a real battery charger to replace the RTF transmitter & charger that came with my Glimpse. I have a few questions and would love some feedback.
Charger - I am looking at both the Hitec X4 and X1 as solutions. I like the X4 alot but know that its only for 1S batteries. The X1 is more but will handle any battery I may need in the future once I start building brushless builds. I will more than likely only ever do micro Quads and maybe some planes though.
I have batteries with both micro JST and standard JST connectors for now only.
What I am getting hung up on is if I go with the X4 I will also need 4 micro JST to JST adapter cables or maybe Molex to JST would be better. therefore I am leaning towards the X1 and getting a quad JST adapter cable to charge four batteries at once. I know it will cost more but it seems silly to have to have four adapters for each battery…i dont know. For those of you that have the X4 how are you charging your JST batteries? Is there another charger I should consider?
Transmitter - I am pretty sure that I will go with a Taranis or a Spektrum DX6. I am leaning towards the DX6 because I am a little overwhelmed by all the setup options on the Taranis. I love the idea of being able to do anything I want more or less but also worried that I will have to spend a lot of time on the setup. I dont want to give up the ease of use that the DX6 will allow but still give this noob alot to play with already. Most of my rigs will probably be DSM2/DSMX.
