Just out of curiosity... why are you asking how to charge the battery today when you've already said that you've flown the Solo a few hours in another thread yesterday?

i fly the solo fulley charged battery than when it gets to 25 percent i land it.
take the battery out and plug it into the charger and turn it on.
when the lights stop flashing the battery is fulley charged than i do it all over again.

Lol it accidentally posted only half my original post - I wanted to know if people were going to buy multiple chargers or create a multi charger to charge multiple batteries simultaneously.

Definitely have to come up with some way to charge multiple batteries simultaneously or we're going to be managing batteries more than flying!

Pick up a LiPo charger http://www.amazon.com/Original-1~15...8&qid=1437531280&sr=8-5&keywords=lipo+charger. Take a 2 wire 110v extension or power cord. Bend one of the prong in and up to align with the receptacles on the battery. On the other end solder a couple of banana plugs. Take note of polarity, the top slot is positive. Set the charger for 4s and charge at 3-5amps. Now you can charge 2 at a time.

Do you know what that 3rd (top) female slot is on the 3DR battery? Have you tried to open the plastic case on it yet?
