Default New Futaba CDR-5000 Super Charger

What do You guys Think of this,it Seems Great.

*Charges, discharges and cycles transmitter and receiver packs without removing them from the radio.
*Auto cut-off can be programmed for delta peaking, mAh and cell temperature; programmable mAh auto cut-off allows for use with ultra-high capacity Li-Ion and Li-Po cells.

*Five built-in fans provide maximum cooling.
*Also features reverse polarity and overload protection.


Standard Charging/Discarging

> Charges from 1 to 36 cells
> 0.1 to 12 amps charge rate
> Discharges 0.1 to 40 amps
> Programmable threshold peak charging
> Programmable mAh cutoff charging
> Thermal charging with optional Thermo-Stand

TX/RX Charging/Discarging
> Charges RX/TX up to 8 cells
> 0.05 to 2 amps charge rate
> Discharges 0.1 to 5 amps

Charges from 1 to 8 Tx/Rx cells, as well 1 to 36 cells. That means it charges up to SIX battery packs at the same time with real-time plotting on the LCD screen.

No scrolling! All information is shown on one large, backlit LCD screen for virtually "touch-free" operation after setup.

Charge outlets for transmitter and receiver batteries are on one side; ports for connecting the charger to the Thermo Stand, printer or PC are on the other side.

Optional Thermo Stand provides quick and easy peace-of-mind. Checks each individual cell's temperature, mAh rating and voltage level, so modelers know precise battery status. Plugs right into the side port of the CDR-5000 charger.

Looks sweet....but where is the motor run in function? If futaba really wants to make some money, that at least have to make it cheaper than a Turbo 35 GFX.

I seen one at the track two weeks ago. Don Rice of Futaba USA had the only one in the USA. It is sweeter than it looks!! Alot of wires to hook up to each battery bar but it gives the voltage of each cell and temp of each cell. It should be superior to any charger out there. It does everything a gfx does and more just not break in motors...>But they may be working on an adapter for that to plug into the charger.
