  • 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. :)

DONT buy this frame
« on: August 08, 2017, 16:33:39 »
So i bought this frame kit the TBS clone, the arm fixing holes do NOT line up, i have resorted to drilling all  the holes out by 0.5mm on each and it still does not go together, so i now have piles of stuff on order for a frame i cant use, it will cost nearly what its worth to return back to China, i should have just stuck to the original idea of making a frame from Plywood with hard wood arms, maybe i can make hardwood arms for this frame and make a mongrel

doesnt really help but for what that frame offers Id have just gone with a x-mode alien as previously mentioned in another topic (possibly yours Im not 100% :slap:)

plenty of them knocking about on eGay (UK) and their basically the same setup as a TBS (slightly tighter arm angles and the front mounts are different, oh and obviously their not CF boards but GF)

Ive used/built three quads using these frames and all but the one Im currently converting to folding are still air worthy despite some less than gentle handling by my two cousins.

they also Use the same arms as the TBS (aslong as its not the slimmed version (the mount holes differ slightly then) so the arms you already have can be used as spares (aswell as all the screws, standoffs etc)

I need a pay rise........ Though I'd settle for a reduction in the amount of hours I need to work to get the same money.
