    If it's a 2S2P pack, then balance every time you charge, or as close as you can to that. If it's just a 2S1P pack, then every 6-8 cycles or so should be sufficient.

    Basically follow the...

    If it is a failed firmware update, you will need to send it back to Castle. I have had this happen in the past.

    They end up replacing the board and sending it back to you.

    Do the screws actually spin and won't back out of the motor, or is it your screwdriver/hex driver spinning in the head of the screw and the screw itself is not turning?

    A 2S LiPo will work fine on your XL-5. I would highly recommend an aftermarket LiPo cutoff module. It will cut power to the vehicle when you hit the low voltage cut-off which protects the LiPo from...

    Battery Elimination Circuit.

    Basically it's what allows you to run your receiver and servos from the power supplied by the main battery. This eliminates the need for the 4-cell receiver pack.

    As far as charging time, nearly any LiPo when charged at 1C will take about 50-60 minutes from dead to full. Adjust accordingly based on how much you pulled out of the pack on the previous run.

    Good charger, but limited to 5A charge rate. So you won't be able to do 1C on any LiPo bigger than a 5000mah.

    5A is plenty for any NiMh pack though. Nice gift!

    i.e. my 4200's I charge at 4.2A and my 4.4k's I charge at 4.4A. All of the classes I...

    If that is the new EP4700 (red and black cells) then it's a great pack. They are far better than the 4.4k's and so far have proven to be more reliable than the IB4200's from my experience.
