How did you manage to plug the battery directly into the programming card

Doh. Thought I might have.

I plugged it directly in with some creative leads and a creative interpretation of the manual which seemed like an excellent idea at the time. About 10 seconds _after_ I plugged it in for about 5 seconds, I remembered the voltages involved on each side differed slightly and the card was expecting a receiver battery pack putting out more like 5V instead of 12V.

I guess the next question is: Any recommendations on a (preferably UK-sourceable) ESC/programmer combo in the 20-30A region that won't break the bank entirely? Student budget and all that, though given it's looking like my RX or TX may be toast too, looks like I might be putting things on the christmas list instead!
