Hello from Birmingham
« on: June 15, 2017, 16:11:55 »
Hi,

Hope to provide some usefulness to the forum in the coming years. I currently have a Walkera Runner 250 PRO, Fatshark Preditor V2 and Eachine EV800. Plus various planes from a Phase 3 Fantom to a something I can remember the name of :) Got my license for planes about 10 years ago now. I've been through nitro / electric planes also was into buggies and the petrol FG Marders years ago.

I have a cracking park right behind my workshop see the members map and you'll see! So I'm up for some meet ups / beers. If you don't mind climbing overgrown bushes we can use the workshop to charge batteries and repairs no problems. Full soldering rework station and micro soldering stereo microscope. (I repair consoles and laptops in my evenings)

I'm currently looking to spec out and build a 250 Quad for full Acro the Runner 250 is nice but I can see the brick wall coming with it soon. However I'm thinking of looking for someone who is leaving the hobby and buying there complete setup if /when that situation comes around.

Hello! I've got a 250 I bought that's just too small for the job. Quad brain ESC, choice of motors, I'd do you a deal on some of that? I'm up for a cup of tea and a drone chat one day if you like, can bring my kit down and you can have whatever you need, all bought recently, I'll do it for 70% cost. There's probably a frame, the esc and motors. Also got an APM I'm selling.

Hello bud, and welcome to the forum.

Now that's very handy, having direct access to flying space right next to your workshop.  ~~ I started my 'race' quad experience with a Runner 250. Not a bad little quad, and I've still got it, but it was never really a 'race' quad and there's some seriously good, fast and agile stuff available now. Build it yourself and the world's your oyster. Buy rtf and even the newer walkera stuff is massively improved.

Loads of help and great advice on here so get stuck in.  ::)

That's great certainly up for doing some flying one of the weekends. There are dog walkers and some times groups of youths over there but on the whole it's ok friendly area.

Unfortunately the new quad spec and build is off the cards for a few weeks as I had a little repair fail (first time in 4 years) last night on a 3DSXL 2015 and I have to fork out £169 to buy the customer a new one!  :banghead:

So a weeks worth of repairs and I should recouped that cost and make some on top to buy a setup. Chris send over some pic's and full list of what's there?

from 20 + years RC experience I've found that buying RTF brand new isn't always the best way to sustain a hobby. Buying someone's complete setup either because a child is on the way or because of a selfish wife has always worked out great specially with the Nitro buggies as my god do you need spares! I once had 6 Hyper 7's and 2 HPI Savages all kitted out and ready to race at one point, good times smashing that lot up over the week ends!  :frantic:

Now older and 3 kids in I've thinned my RC's to just a couple of planes and now this Drone stuff has me hooked!

My parallel charge board, Eachine EV800 goggles and a FPV camera has turned up to day. If these EX800's are good I may look at selling my Fatsharks to fund the new build.

To have had that many buggys (especially hyper 7's) and 2 savages plus all the breakages you must have been a maxbasher!

The new buggys almost never break during racing nowadays
