  • 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...
    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 !!!

  • 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. :)

  • 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. :)

#Ruddy flying wings#
« on: April 15, 2018, 09:15:28 »
So i am building, nearly finished a Skywalker X5 1180 wing, it has gone fairly well so far, now we are at the stage of getting right lipo for CG.....point blank i WILL NOT buy any more potential fire bombs, so i am trying my eclectic collection of lipo`s and the only one that fits, just  and gives CG is the 3000mah zippy..........so looks like i am going to have to add luggage to the front, at least it will give me 6 packs to go at doing it this way, or maybe carve some foam from the hatch and parallel a pair in it, if i can find my connector!
will be running 2212 1400kv, 8x4 prop 30 amp HK blue esc and Eagle tree guardian (when it arrives)<br /><br />

If it only takes a small amount of forward shift in the battery to get balance it might be worth carving the  batt bay out and gorilla gluing some thin ply to reinforce it . Fine tuning the C.O.G. with small pieces of lead under the batt.

If you’ve got any mini quad batteries you can always parallel one of those.

I have no choice but to re design the internal layout to take a pair in parallel
