  • 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. :)

    July 12, 2018, 08:32:22
  • Reman: The ergonomics of the TGY feel better, But every new revision of the firmware brought more bugs (The last version had a bug where opening the gimble menu would cause the TX to crash and reset to factory defaults !!!). So what I was hoping was to end up with a stable FS-i10 with a nicer layout.

Reincarnation - dronewolf pup rebuild a year on
« on: December 21, 2016, 01:33:59 »
Ok about a year ago I built my dronewolf pup 5 inch, origional thread is here:
http://www.multi-rotor.co.uk/index.php?topic=17115.0

I really enjoyed this quad, I flew it longer than any other, eventually though I bit the bullet and went for pure x frames with underslung batteries, but I used the pup as a basher until mid 2016 when it had taken so much abuse things were failing and I built a qav210 as a basher.  But now I am gonna rebuild the pup.

All components are ripped out and the quad is disassembled, new build components otw:

Dronewolf pup 5 inch frame (only the carbon)
GWR fasteners hardware (stainless steel colourfast - as pretty as anodised aluminium but toughter, this frame has taken many major hits but all that has failed on the frame has been aluminum hardware)
Tbs zerozero cam
Tbs powercube elite bundle (colibri v2, fpv vision, pdb)
Tbs bulletproof 25a escs
Armattan oomph 2206 2300kv
Racekraft 5051
Depinned frsky XSR
Forevertube antenna mounts
Tbs triumph/manacerc pagoda (haven';t decided which yet, got spares of both)
Gonna try and fit GoPro 2 lense but not optimistic it will fit

Also available in cammo!

Have to say this quad is flying superbly on bf3.1 at 8khz/4khz/dshot600 with motor direction reversed

Lovely  :laugh:

I got so much grass in every nook and cranny on my 210 last week , I ended up baking it on the radiator for an hour, drying the debris to dust, then dusting off with a small paint brush  :smiley:

My daughter is in her first year of uni, she has left a treasure trove of kit in her bedroom which I have acquired to clean up quads in a box labelled "make up". Loads of useful blunt tweasers, small brushes and cotton buds.

Of course she is gonna go ballistic when she comes home, but that is a problem for another day

The saga continues, the second colibri died, I suspect an issue with the tbs core.

Replaced the whole fc stack with an Armattan pdb, bluejay f4, tbs unify pro hv race.
Replaced the swift withe a swift2

Replaced the tbs escs with a sample of Sunrise Siskin 33amp blheli32.

Switched to dshot1200 and off we go :)

I';ve found spraying a bit of WD40 on a rag and wiping over the quads surfaces stops grass and other crap from sticking to the quad.
