I just still wonder why mine wont balance the LiPOs. Gotta call MM direct as we all know there wont really be any support for us that are Stateside.

I hate the scroll wheel. Dunno why they used it when it. Scroll wheels came out because users had to scroll through many pages of text. This does not. Max 3-4 ITEMS, not pages. I knew that when purchasing I would hate the scroll wheel though. My scroll wheel is also VERY VERY sensitive, too sensitive in fact that I can not select even numbered items in the user setup screen: like #2 or #4 end charge sound.

I think the Legend's are pretty amazing. Can charge up to 16 amps, 1-4s, and even choose between "normal" charge which will do 2s to 8.44 volts, or race mode, which will give them a little extra bump.

Best chargers on the market, hands down.

Is there anyway to cut off at 8.40V?

Yes, charge in normal mode. It will end up at 8.4V. Still, don't forget to double check at your events tech booth.

Has anyone gotten the Legend Power supply? I am wondering how much it actually weighs. According to the spec, it weighs 1.8kg, could that be the shipping weight, instead of the net weight?

I would ballpark the weight at about 6-7 pounds. Its heavy, but worth every penny.

6 or 7 pounds?? Sounds a little high. 1.8kg would be less than 4 which sounds pretty heavy. Everything I'm reading is that the power supply is 1800g and the chargers are 660g each. So the total package with chargers would be 7 pounds.

I am getting the purple Legend charger, it is simply irresistible

I am thinking of getting the power supply too, but it might be too heavy to haul around. The old 24A Power Master 2 could still go very well with the new charger.

Default power supply

The power supply is not heavy. You'll be fine plus you have to use wires if you don't have the power supply. It's worth it.

Like I said, it was ballpark. Its not like you're going to be carrying around a bowling ball by any means, but it is a touch heavier than the standard power supply.
