Default Orion Advantage and TX lipo

Hi, does anyone know if the Orion Advantage Carbon can charge TX lipos safely? I read that they can and cant...would like a sure answer here.

Thanks

I have two advantages and neither one does 3 s (which is what your transmiter pack is comprised of) . They only charge 1 or 2 lipo cells (at a time) and I am pretty sure they detect automatically based on the voltage presented. I am not sure if there's more than one version of the lipo capable advantage, but I had to buy a small 25$ charger to charge my transmitter pack.of my carbons. If you have a balance plug you could charge the cells 1 @ a time as a work around . . .

Would this be a suitable TX pack? It's 2 cell so I think the Advantage could charge. I use and M11. http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=EFLB0990


Thanks

no because the m11 must run off around 12 volts, 7.4 would not power it enough
