    Anyone notice how long it takes to charge? I just wanted to top it off (had three lights showing) and it has been charging over an hour.

    I charged mine once and with last 19 flights it's still well over 60%. First time it took about 30 mins to top off.

    It takes 4+ hours to charge it from empty, so you're findings are spot on.

    I assume it would be ok to use my Thor triple charger that I was using for my P3 controller? They are basically the same controller right?

    I haven't seen anyone open the remote controller yet, but I'm assuming it uses the same battery as the P3 remote controller.
