    I would suggest getting the best charger/lipos that you can afford. I am running a Hyperion 720i Super Duo 3 (I can charge 2 lipos at 20 amps each = 15 minute charge times ) and for lipos I am also running Hyperion 45c packs. A Main Hobbies sells the chargers...you will have to google the lipos as I bought mine from a buddy.
