The CP10 gets my vote also. I've got it and the 4S also. The CP10 charges my 6S 4200 packs at 2C with no issues. Easy to use and no problems.

Check this site out. I am finishing up their Delta 3/C now. I don't think I'll be flying my Stryker much. Watch the videos, pretty impressive.

I don't have the Spektrum, but a Futaba 9C Super. When I programmed my Ultrastick 60 with a 4 servo wing I actually used the sailplane programming. This made it much easier. Crow was an option and...

Also recommend the 10S. I use it to charge up to 6S 4200 packs and it doesn't miss a beat. I also have the 4S and love it too. I just don't think you can go wrong with the 10S. Just make sure you...

Ouch!! Like Red said, it looks like the charger is the problem. I'd definitely let FMA know about the two puffed packs. I'd say they owe you a new charger and 2 new packs.

After reading this I checked my cc since I just purchased a Cellpro 10S from FMA earlier this month. No problems so far, but I will be checking to make sure.
