  • Saleem: Am wandering if my new eachine ev800 will arrive at lunch time with postie!
    September 25, 2016, 21:58:19
  • Slayer23: B6 all the way
    September 25, 2016, 19:23:35
  • insx: Or this if you already have a 12V/5A power supply [link]
    September 25, 2016, 19:20:25
  • insx: I'm still trying to get under 35 seconds, Stu!!!
    September 25, 2016, 19:19:19
  • insx: Imax B6 seconded. I had a similar experience with the Banggood charger and ended up with a dead cell. I'm pretty sure it's the charger's fault. Bin it ASAP.
    September 25, 2016, 19:18:55
  • DarrellW: [link]
    September 25, 2016, 19:17:48
  • DarrellW: @Stu an imax b6 is a very good option but make sure you get the genuine one, also they come in 240/12V or 12V only options so make sure you either get the mains dc one or get a dc one and power supply.
    September 25, 2016, 19:14:54
  • Stupotsthelot: What do u suggest then. Just keep an eye on it when charging and manually stop it at 12.6 like I had done earlier?
    September 25, 2016, 19:05:58
  • DarrellW: It's much easier to adjust to get it slop free and in the right position, don't very often have to trim them.
    September 25, 2016, 19:04:48
  • DarkButterfly: sounds good, I used to use wire links, will need to go back to it again as they worked very well ~~
    September 25, 2016, 19:02:01
  • DarrellW: I use wire links or CF rod, makes it very positive and unless you manage to strip the servo gears very reliable, I don't use metal gear servos any more, just carbonite or nylon gears but go up to 16-18gm ones
    September 25, 2016, 18:59:08
  • DarkButterfly: I used to run that setup on my talon tri, but the ball links were crap and both let go in flight causing a very awesome spin-crash, that I never filmed
    September 25, 2016, 18:55:29
  • DarrellW: @Stu, that's not the best charger, it's very basic.
    September 25, 2016, 18:55:04
  • DarrellW: I've got a double sided servo arm with connections off both sides to the yaw platform - Push/Pull.
    September 25, 2016, 18:53:51
  • DarkButterfly: I'm not a fan of direct drive yaw mechs, I try to use links if possible
    September 25, 2016, 18:52:26
  • DarkButterfly: ah okay ::)
    September 25, 2016, 18:51:24
  • hoverfly: For closed loop read  string, ::)
    September 25, 2016, 18:51:00
  • DarkButterfly: you may have to explain that one, I know it sounds silly, as I've built tri's before
    September 25, 2016, 18:49:12
  • DarkButterfly: Closed loop?
    September 25, 2016, 18:48:00
  • DarkButterfly: I wonder how it will stand up to fairly brisk wind having less weight, the mini hex does okay up to 15mph wind, after that it gets a bit hairy
    September 25, 2016, 18:47:19
  • DarrellW: @DB my tricopters all have closed loop on the yaw, it puts less stress on the servos.
    September 25, 2016, 18:46:37
  • Stupotsthelot: It's the b3ac balance charger that came with my kit
    September 25, 2016, 18:45:21
  • DarrellW: @Stu the charger cutout should be set at 12.6V for 3S, you don't want to overcharge - it can quite easily cause the magic smoke to get out......
    September 25, 2016, 18:44:07
  • DarkButterfly: It will with the active yaw mech, although my mini hex is very snappy in the turns
    September 25, 2016, 18:42:27
  • Saleem: Gonna flash the minimosd I have here!
    September 25, 2016, 18:41:51
  • Saleem: And an osd when I get keyboard and mouse for my PC tower,I had to buy ps/2 type
    September 25, 2016, 18:41:25
  • DarrellW: @DB I reckon that would give some of these fpv racers a very good run for their money if not beat them; the better yaw would make turns quicker I would have thought plus the lower weight to slow down for the turn.
    September 25, 2016, 18:41:19
  • Stupotsthelot: This is only second time charging. They didn't go green that time either and I had to stop it as it was on 12.8. Im confused lol
    September 25, 2016, 18:41:11
  • Saleem: I got a diatone lizard 150,that's gonna be my next build planned.little bee 20a blheli,Rotorx 1104 4000,pdb?couldvtry to daisy chain the motors and esc?naze32,1000tvlrx,just need a tx.waiting on some racestar 30a blheli_s,then I can fit them to my 250 and reuse the little bees off it,otherwise nearly everything's there bar a tx
    September 25, 2016, 18:40:57
  • DarrellW: I mean leave it until the lights do go green, it can take a l  o  n  g time... but next time because the cells are very close it takes a lot less time.
    September 25, 2016, 18:38:35
  • DarkButterfly: i've seen David's baby tri and really want to build one
    September 25, 2016, 18:37:08
  • Stupotsthelot: How long should I have left it on?
    September 25, 2016, 18:36:53
  • Stupotsthelot: What u mean? Let It balance? 2 n half hours charging no lights going green
    September 25, 2016, 18:36:37
  • DarrellW: @DB you seen David Widenstall's little 'un  100 mph on his setup!!!!
    September 25, 2016, 18:36:25
  • DarrellW: @Stu that's ok, but you would have been better letting it balance, reduces the time next time you charge it.
    September 25, 2016, 18:34:55
  • DarkButterfly: feel like doing another build, either a baby tricopter or a baby X quad
    September 25, 2016, 18:29:42
  • Stupotsthelot: I just stopped it manually, is now at 12.6.... 4.17... 4.17...4.21
    September 25, 2016, 18:26:58
  • Stupotsthelot: It's all brand new from banggood!
    September 25, 2016, 18:25:40
  • DarrellW: 0.1  difference means 15% less life for that battery, if it gets more I would only use if for less arduous applications.
    September 25, 2016, 18:13:03
  • DarrellW: 0.1 difference in lipo terms is not good, sounds either like your charger isn't right or that lipo is on its way out; do other lipos charge ok?
    September 25, 2016, 18:08:57
  • Stupotsthelot: Pretty balanced
    September 25, 2016, 17:51:42
  • Stupotsthelot: 4.1. 4.1 4.0
    September 25, 2016, 17:51:33
  • Bad Raven: Sounds like the charger can't balance it, never will, what is the cell voltage per cell?
    September 25, 2016, 17:49:52
  • Stupotsthelot: This lipo is pissing me off. Nearly 2 hours charging n still not done.
    September 25, 2016, 17:47:48
  • DarrellW: @BR PMSL!!!! p.s. I'm a Moody blues fan...... seen my handle obviously ::)
    September 25, 2016, 17:44:02
  • Bad Raven: MOODY!!!!!
    September 25, 2016, 16:25:35
  • Bad Raven: Must be beef today cos lamb was last week  (Moddy Blues)
    September 25, 2016, 16:25:22
  • Bad Raven: E010's were on 48hrs for £8.53 so I bought three........one converted FPV with std motors at the mo and works OK.
    September 25, 2016, 16:24:40
  • DarrellW: Mmmmm roast lamb..... Mmmmm Merlot...... Zzzzzzz ::) ::) ::)
    September 25, 2016, 15:58:56
  • Stupotsthelot: Insx, I just had 24.02 on meadow. Chalenger set! Lol
