    what type of 5000mah? A lipo then NOOOOOO do not even think of using the stock wall charger. You will cause damage to the pack and a potential fire.

    If its a lipo, then make sure you have fire fighters at your door...

    I wish it was easier for newbies to break into RC. There are so many questions/problems when you first start out and not many good sources. This is a great source of course, but it took me a long time to find it.
