I was just at RC Champ today, and they had a couple in stock... Don't think you will be able to to get it outside of Japan just yet as it only came out over the weekend! I could be wrong though.

Hi,

A friend gave me a HI-IQ JR whose discharge function no longer work. I know there's no support anywhere else for the charger anymore so I was planning to try and fix it myself. I'm just puzzled with jumper wire installed in place of a resistor. I don't know whether the unit's already tampered so ...

Can anybody tell me what's the resistor values that should be in mounted instead of the jumper wire? I don't want to waste FETS if possible because of that jumper wire.

Sorry for hijacking the thread but I believe the few remaining VIctor Charger owners are in this thread
Thanks!
That jumper wire looks to me as used as a sense resistor for maybe the discharging unit. High Amp resistors (called shunts by the electronic guys) are made this way but itīs the cheap solution. Professional made shunts look different but are expensive. Iīm not really shure but this jumper wire and itīs solderpoints look like overheated or burned. Maybe thatīs the problem. But you canīt tell too much just from that picture. Also you canīt change the jumper wire that easy as working in this area could result in high amp changes. There should be a closer look from an electronic technician.

The Futaba still lacks motor run in. I think that is a major necessity when you talk high end ultimate charger.

Picked up a Futaba CDR5000 yesterday.. Quite a nice little unit, still trying to decipher what i can from the Japanese manual!
I am yet to charge any batteries on it, just charging my 3PK at the moment.
As for motor run-in, i have a Pulsar competition and a Motor master (V.3) to do that for me..

Snoopy: RC Champ have no more in stock either.. Either do many shops here in Tokyo, it seemed to be a popular item yesterday!!..

other than a fresh new look to a charger I dont see the appeal of the Futaba charger over the turbo 35 GFX. The GFX does more for less money.

I wonder why companies like Tekin and Victor went out of business. I was shocked when I got back into R/C and found Tekin was no more.. shocked.. and then I found out about Victor? I was like $#^#$&
