  • hoverfly: Still have a couple of orange tipple batts still working,   mainly part time... ::)

  • Bad Raven: Is the issue Turnigy or Turnigy Nano-Tech? I have found that mid-blue Turnigy tend to be low on their stated "C" discharge rating.
    July 16, 2018, 08:37:09
  • ched999uk: RaceDayQuads have some cheap but good batts out now. Josh B tested and stats say very good especially at price. HobbyRC have 1300mAh 4S just under £20. Not had luck with Turnigy lipos either!!

  • Reman: Just realised that I hadn't gone through my stored Li-Po's for about a month. I try to visually check them every Saturday, And prod the plugs with a multimeter about once a month. Todays seen 12 more bulging packs go out to the incinerator..... All but one was a bloody Turnigy! Part of me wan't to burn the rest now and just get a load more Tattu packs, But I've spent good money on these packs and wan't to at least get a little more use out of them. :(

  • Bad Raven: Pre MR's I used to buy a lot from J.Perkins. Their website showed all items and stock or due date, go to dealer and buy with confidence. Then they went all "lifestyle" and all the site had were pictures or people. I wasn't after people. I never bought again. Yes, you'd think they'd learn...........
    July 15, 2018, 17:51:40
  • ched999uk: Reman sounds like amazon search. I find it ok unitil you want to search by price then amazon falls apart.... You would think both companies would get it right...
    July 15, 2018, 16:54:55
  • Reman: It's strange. The original setup they had about 5 or 6 years back wasn't too bad (Except for them occasionally getting accounts hacked), But they changed it to the last one that was clunky and slow, Now they've replaced that with a flashier one that's also clunky and slow ?!?!?! Most companies learn from what they do wrong. I don't buy from HK half as much as I used to, Mainly because it takes forever to trawl through 100 pages of totally unrelated stuff while looking for something you were thinking about getting when you saw it there the previous week !!!
    July 15, 2018, 16:27:21
  • hoverfly: I don't think there is a search button on H/King. They updated the site and forgot to  relabel the search button with  Random bo##ocks..
    July 15, 2018, 09:47:35
  • Bad Raven: Agree - The Search is abysmal!!
    July 15, 2018, 08:40:52
  • Reman: I see HobbyKing's revamped their site again...... Shame they haven't made the search function work any better, Or worked out why the whole site goes slower than a pensioner in a Nissan Micra. :)
    July 15, 2018, 08:28:14
  • Reman: How thick is Google? You buy something online, Then for the next week you get targeted adds for the item you've just got?!?! That's the one item you're NOT going to be buying again at that point so it's wasted effort of there part. :)

The Tracker... something's happening...
« on: January 10, 2018, 10:47:58 »
I wonder if anyone still remembers the TRACKER project?
Well, in an interesting turn of events SOMETHING is starting to happen again. Something rather interesting and radically different.

However, I'm not going to say anything until I'm totally sure and I've built, tested, flown, lost and FOUND some prorotypes.
In fact, I think it would be a nice idea to hand out some units at a future fly-up for folk to have a go with.

In the meantime, something we've been tinkering with at work is a nice little funding tool that we're going to offer to some of our web clients which I think might help raise some pennies towards getting a set of PCBs made.

I'd be ever so grateful if some folk could visit this page on the tracker site:

http://www.cheeky-robot.com/help-us-out/

keep the tab open for as long as you're happy, all day if you can! I want to see how this works with a number of people at the same time and get some analytics. There's no software installed on your machine, is just does some calculations in javascript to generate micro amounts of crypto currency. I've not seen any noticable slowdown on a handful of PCs so far (it's disabeled for use on phones at the moment)

Cheers all!

Be careful mate. I cant remember who but a big company recently had lots of negative press for doing something similar. The main issue, if I remember, was lack of visitors permission.

Yep, I read abut that too. Some people were running it in the background which ius FIRLMY what we're not going to be doing.
We run sites for some big charaties and need to make sure that everythig's all above board - hence the nice pink graph showing what we're up to.

Anyone else can't access that link? I saw a spike in activity. Link works for me in the post.

Well, if I can figure this out then at least you can have the option of watching paint dry or watching crypto-mining this afternoon!  :rofl:

Do you have adblocker running?
It blocks the script which is fine for when people are trying to run it sneakily in the background.

We'll add some help to the  final page about that kind of thing.

Tried it earlier while on a rain break and it worked. Pushed up processor load to about 70% (i3 quad core win7).
Not sure about watching paint dry. Bl00dy hard work trying to paint textured walls. Only managed 30% of wall so far. Thank god it's a bungalow  :smiley:

Thanks for trying that. Seems to be working and it really DOES seem that if we get a handful of people to sign on that want to support a find then it could just pay.
We've got about 9p from the last 24 hours testing and that's just on 2 PCs at work and you guys this afternoon.

Yeah, painting on textured surfafe is a horror. My mate has a pressure paint sprayer thingy that he uses for large paint jobs. Says it makes painting walls, fences etc a doddle. Keep at it - at least you're in the fresh air. Though if you're like me you'd probably rather be in the fresh air with a quad in the air!  :cool:
