Thanks for the responses to my previous inquiry. They were very helpful!
Incidentally, am currently assembling an electric powered glider by OK Models, called the "Caraway" (can be seen in the link below)The few question I have, though is generic, and not particular to this model.
I am using NiCad cells. There is a motor speed controller which the battery pack connects to. I must solder a connector to the battery pack as it came only with wire leads. My question is regarding charging this battery pack. Do you usually disconnect the battery from the plane's electronics before charging? If so, are these white nylon connectors the most convenient with respect to connecting/disconnecting repeatedly for recharging. What I'm wondering is if I should wire in a parallel set of terminals to the battery so I can clip my charger to it, while it's in the plane without disturbing the connection to the plane electronics.
As a side-note, I am considering building my next glider with no motor. I am amazed at how lightweight the wings and fuselage of this plane are, as well as the micro receiver and mini servo's. The motor and battery pack are like bricks compared to the rest. If I do that, I'd like to consider using plain alkaline cells. Anyone doing this?
