Welcome to the Radical RC Workbench, Radicalcast.  Today the topic is 12v power supplies for the flying field.  Dave will cover how many amps your power supply needs to be to drive your chargers and how to get the most life out of your 12v wet lead acid batteries.

Note, this is my first cast, just warming up and learning this new skill, they’ll get better I promise. 😉
