My name is Brandon, I'm from Commerce City, CO. I'm new to the quadcopter/drone hobby however, had a brief introduction to RC Helis about 5 years ago. I've recently been flying my newly acquired Syma X5C-1 (without camera attached), and am enjoying every minute of it. These guys are trickier to fly than what one would imagine when you consider the various orientations and other variables, like height, wind, line of site etc.
I've been spending a lot of time learning everything there is to know about quadcopters/drones in general. I still have my Imax b6-ac from when I bought my Heli that I'm using to parrallel charge my 5 1s lipo's in parallel. I searched high and low for probably two days straight last weekend just learning how to parallel charge and making sure I had all the correct wires/connectors/attachments and what have you. I did have to order a 1 to 3 parallel cable off of Amazon.
I'm also looking at getting the X8HC made by Syma as well. I know you get what you pay for, but I appreciate the fact Syma's are seemingly good quads for beginners at a relatively affordable cost. My wife and I visit Moab every year where we spend a day riding UTV's (other days hiking, horseback riding etc). My plan is to learn how to fly and then take a DJI Phantom with us so we can get some great pics and video. Thats the plan anyway.
Before I go, I have a quick question. As mentioned I'm looking at the X8HC which comes with a 7.4V 2000mah 2S lipo battery. However, I'm not sure on the connector I would need that goes from the connector on the batt to the main leads on my charger. The leads have what I believe is called a, 'Deans', connector (pictured below). Below I've linked a picture of the battery, (although this one a 2500mah). I'm not confused about the Deans connector, but am unsure what kind of wire/connector combo I would need that connects to the red connector on the battery as shown with the red circle around it in the photo.
