In my experience, shop owners aren't happy when people buy things off the net, and then go to them for free advice on how to make it work. Internet shopping is great, and I have to say, these days I buy nearly all my modelling stuff via mail order, chiefly becuase the local modelshops are no longer very local, and they rarely have what I'm looking for. But you need to know what you want, so it is better suited to experienced modellers. On the flipside I've known model shop owners who lack knowledge, and will swaer black is white in order to make a sale.
To charge your battery, you only need one of those $5 chargers, it'll take a couple of hours to fully recharge 1300mAH capacity. I wouldn't expect long running times from a pack that size. Half an hour, to an hour tops (running light throttle)
