Default Charging cells

Hey Guys, i have been racing for years now but i have always used a delta peak charger, i have just bought the futaba cdr 5000 and it has the temperature charge function.
My question is what temperature do you set the cut off and do you take the ambient temp into account,
I charge @ 6 amps if this makes any difference.
I am also using IB4200 cells

Thanks

Lee

Lee,
I let mine hit between 120-122 and then after charge they usually climb 6-10 degree's higher.
Goodluck.Nice cells and choice of charger.

FYI

does the futaba charger do Faren or Celcius?

110 degrees faren is about 44 degrees celcius.
