IMO, not for long.
With the introduction of the Futaba CDR5000, CE will have some fight in the market soon.

Tekin is comning back too and from some of the Email conversations I've had with Jim (Tekin Prez.) they will be a contender for that title as well. We'll have to see where that goes.

I hust got back from the RC show in Dortmund Germany where i spoke with a couple of guys from Robbe/Futaba about the CDR5000. They showed me how the thing works and what it can do. I my humble oppinion it will never dethrone CE from their possition of being the industry standard. I still opt for a CE Turbo35GFX.

Regards

I am in the market for a new charger but still waiting for the arrival of the CDR5000.
Any info would be much appreciated.

Default charger..

I use Robitronic expert for charging the cells and it seems to work like a swiss clock. Highly recommended over those LRP "2-3 charges and off you go for a 6 month guarantee season" chargers..

Also, are you sure that the Eagle/Integy charger's way of charging (stops every once in a while) the cells doesn't harm them?

I have never had a single problem with my LRP. Not one false peak, nothing. I've been using it for about 8 months now I guess.

Had the same happen to me 3 weeks back. Brand new LRP Pulsar Competition blew up on me in the 3rd charge. So i took it back to the LHS where i bought it. They had to send it back to LRP to check if it is a warranty case???? I bought it 2 days before! What happened to the "Lifetime Warranty"? 3 weeks later i haven't heard anything from LRP about wether or not i will ever see this charger again! I think that LRP has so many chargers and esc's to check it takes them 6 months to check a charger they got in today. LOL
Give me Novak service and quality any day! Atleast they have a turnaround of a few days.

At my opinion, yes.

About the Eagle: It never false peaks. Cells performs good. It measure IR and average voltage. 10 memory slots. And 20 amps discharge.

A minor annoying thing: Amps cant be adjusted on the fly. You have to stop the charge, adjust amps, and start again. The result is that the display is reset, so now you dont know how many milliamps... There aint a power failuer resume thing, but on the other hand, it can go quite well below the rated input voltage, so it's quite good protected against low AC voltage...

Some people need the lathe power feature.

Well, people got different needs, but if budget aint unlimited, I still believe the Eagle has best value for money.
