    imax b6 charger issue

    I have the same charger, and it too takes a little time to "ramp up" to the charge rate I have it set for. I never considered it a problem.

    Transmitter to control the RTF, toy quads?

    Another vote for the T8SG. It will fly almost everything, toy grade and up. Fantastic range, great battery life, very nice gimbals. For me there was a bit of a learning curve since it was my first "real" programmable transmitter, but now I can take any of my quads to the park but only need the...

    A newbie's mistake, or should I say..... ignorance?

    Unless you want to fly acro. For me, that's the reason I'd buy that quad. There aren't a lot of good cheap acro flyers.

    Newbie question about 5.8ghz compatible goggle

    I think if you look around you can find the EV800D for $99. That's what I paid for mine. I figured the diversity was worth the extra money, and I was right. Plus as you mentioned, a built in DVR. I bought them as "starter goggles" but frankly I see no reason to upgrade to anything else. I...

    Syma Bind Transmitter and Receiver

    From what I understand, some of the V5 boards use the older protocol. I'm not sure what transmitter would work. You could buy a newer X8 board. Or an actual X8C.

    Syma Bind Transmitter and Receiver

    For what model quadcopter, exactly?

    Syma Bind Transmitter and Receiver

    That link you posted looks like a transmitter for a Syma X5SW, which I'm pretty sure is different than what the X8C, X5C-1, and X11 use.

    Newbie question about 5.8ghz compatible goggle

    Those should work. I have the Eachine EV800D goggles myself and they work great.

    Syma Bind Transmitter and Receiver

    If you Google that model transmitter, it looks like the X8C, which means it will also fly an X5C-1 and an X11, maybe others.

    Brushed motors approx life span

    Coreless motors still have brushes. They're just a bit more efficient and can have higher output, but the lifespan is the same.

    You Just Bought a New Drone...

    It sounds like you know the answer to your own question. Also, if you tell us what quadcopter you're talking about, you'll probably get a lot more meaningful recommendations. Different models are prone to needing different spare parts.

    Bugs 3 Batteries and Chargers

    Skip the individual adapters and get yourself one of these. It plugs right into the iMax and lets you charge more than one battery at a time. The iMax will charge just about anything, but different quads have different connectors. Charging boards are the way to go. You only need the one...

    Bugs 3 Batteries and Chargers

    That one has a built-in power supply and comes with an AC cord.

    Bugs 3 Batteries and Chargers

    This is the charger many people will recommend (and many of us own). It will charge just about any type of LIPO battery, not just your Bugs 3. If you're like the rest of us you will soon own more quadcopters, but you'll never have to buy another charger...

    suggestions for first radio ?

    If you can spend a bit more, the Jumper T8SG V2 might be a good choice. It's multiprotocol so you're not locked into a particular protocol, or having to buy an add-in module down the road if you want to fly something different. It stores configuration for up to 30 different models...

    Where do FPV goggles get their data from

    And of course the power output of the VTX.

    Where do FPV goggles get their data from

    What that tells us is that there is a video receiver built into the transmitter (since it has a built in screen, that you can also output to a set of goggles) but the camera still has to have a separate VTX, using a separate signal than the one that controls the quadcopter. When you're flying...

    Bugs 3 and a Flysky Transmitter

    That doesn't include the Bugs 3 protocol. The 4-in-1 module in the Jumper T8SG has it but I don't think any other TX or module includes that protocol (other than of course the Bugs TX).
