Having been a nitro person for years I decided to try Electric Flight. Knowing nothing about Electric I asked fellow club members for advise. One of them pointed me to Progressive for charging needs. As I am running 4400 mHa 6s 30C batteries I needed a strong charger. When contacting Progressive I explained my experience level & needs to them. They suggested the Tailor Made Combo.
After reviewing it I went with the Power Lab 6 and the 1000 Watt PS. I also added a Parallel board, USB connection & EC-5 connectors. It arrive very quickly and I was impressed as it was all wired and ready to go. All plug & Play. My only issue was that my balance leads were short and hooking to the balance board was difficult. This was no problem as again Progressive had what i needed. I ordered balance extensions 2 to a pack as well as charge extensions and I now have what I need to charge 6 batteries at a time. As this is a large purchase It is nice to purchase from an AMERICAN company where I can turn to for all future needs and warranty if needed, and not have to worry about it. You get what you pay for, but doing it right the first time saves money down the road. Thank you Progressive
- I am new to electric flight and was told about this site after talking with club members. I am using 6S 4400 mHa batteries and wanted a large charger. I called Progressive and they suggested the Taylor Made Combo after defining my needs. Went with the PL 6 & 1000 watt PS. Could not have asked for a better choice. I also purchased a Parallel board & USB Interface and EC-5 connectors. They arrived already wired ready to go very nice touch. Very happy with purchase. Only problem I encountered was hooking up the batteries to the Parallel Board my pack leads were very short. Being new to Electric this was no problem I just ordered Balance lead extensions and Charge lead extensions from the web site, Nice to see the balance leads come two to a pack. I am now completely set up to change my fleet to electric power any and meet any future need I might have. I highly recommend progressive. You get what you pay for. Nice to deal with an American company and have a warranty with the product.
- Upgrading the power supply to 1000w caused a little glitch in the packing slip and the combo arrived with wrong cables. However, corrected cables arrived a few days later. PL6 charger with 1000w power supply is kick butt, fast and solid. I highly recommend the optional USB cable for use with the free software. Configuring custom presets and customizing charge options with the software is a breeze. I will buy from progressive again.
Still do not have the correct components from the Combo.
Customer Service is decent
