The beauty of LiPo is that thereis only one real charging method. Both the Advantage and the Avionics charge the battery the same way and will provide the same quality of charge. There are some differences:
The Advantage only charges 2-cell LiPo, but can charge at up to 10 amps while the Avionics will charge 1-4 cell LiPo but auto detects to charge at 1C.
Both charge NiMh, but Advantage at up to 10 amps and the Avionics at up to 5 amps.
Advantage has the other features like motor run-in and discharge plus more NiMh charging features.
If you have only one LiPo battery (to power car), and you are going to use NiMh as well (transmitter, receiver packs, to power car), you are better off with the Advantage.
If you plan on only using LiPo, the Avionics would be better. Personall, I use the Advantage to charge my LiPo and NiMH power packs plus my NiMh receiver packs, and use the less expensive (of the two) Avionics chargers to charge my transmitter batteries . I could use this to charge receiver batteries as well and it sells for like $35.00.
From what I know, I think you made the right choice.
