  • 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.

  • 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...........

  • 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...

  • 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 !!!

  • 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..

  • 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. :)

  • 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. :)

Pixhack - a better pixhawk alternative?
« on: September 23, 2015, 18:00:21 »
If you have been to our website recently you might of noticed that we are now selling a full pixhack autopilot kit.  For once I am happy to see a genuine pixhawk clone/alternative that actualy shows some forms of innovation in the design.

The most notable feature of the pixhack that makes it better than a pixhawk in my opinion is the fact that the sensors are all mounted onto a floating vibration isolation platform, similar to what the DJI autopilots use.

 [ Invalid Attachment ]

Otherwise the kit includes a full set of addon peripherals including the Ublox M8N GPS, power module, and minimOSD.  In addition if you purchase from unmanned tech, we will back this product with a 90 day manufacturer warranty, so if any hardware faults crop up within this perioed that are due to manufacturing errors we will replace the board for you.  You can find out more about this autopilot on our website.

Are you sure that your pictures show a genuine Pixhack ?

The original Pixhack is coming with a CNC Aluminium housing (black,grey,gold) and is made by CUAV, introduced at RCGroups and DIY drones already last year, available since march.

But your pictures show a rather cheap looking copy of it.

Are you selling this copy or the genuine one by CUAV ?

We are selling the CUAV version of the pixhack board, but felt that the aluminium case was unnecessarily expensive compared to a plastic case.  This helps keep the price much lower.

But that aside, we are a UK based shop an offer a full support and a 90 day warranty against any possible manufacturing defects, as we dont sell cheap clone boards that are not tested.  So if you have any issues that where not caused by user error we will repair/replace the board for you as we ensure the boards pass a series of QC tests at the factory, and we test a few from each batch again when they arrive with us in the UK.

Also our next batch of Pixhack boards will now include the V2 telemetry kit.
