  • 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..
    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. :)

V Antenna Holder
« on: August 10, 2017, 18:53:38 »
Been looking at v shaped antenna holders today to put on the quad seen a few designs etc wondered what everyone was using and how you';ve been mounting them etc am guessing with the amount of people with 3d printers on here someone could knock me one up  ~~ (paid of course  :laugh:)

That';s a good ideal matey didn';t even think about that  :embarrassed would prob work better as theres no holes on the top deck so I was toying with the ideal of sticking it down so it gives a bit in a crash and doesn';t snap anything etc

am all set on the tubes I got antenna tubing in lumo green  :laugh:

theres a quantum one on fastlads for a fiver which has holes to mount but might be able to Velcro it down but its in yellow  :( trying to color scheme the new one haha  after a bright green really :cool:

Most people just zip a couple of cable ties around any convenient holes near the rear of the top plate, Trim them down a bit, Then heatshrink the aerial wires to them (Read somewhere that you shouldn';t use black heatshrink over the exposed portion of the aerials ends though. Apparently it';s coloured with something like carbon and can block the TX';s signal enough to reduce the usable range). 

The whole setup';s pretty light, If the ties are tight they works well at keeping aerials out of the props and they also give them a fair bit of protection in a prang.

I bought a couple of aerial supports from HobbyKing (www.hobbyking.com/en_us/hobbyking-receiver-antenna-mount-dual-45deg-with-direct-or-clip-mount.html), But after the first one broke (In a not perticually nasty crash) I didn';t bother fitting the other and just used the cable tie trick instaid.
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.

Well lads I had a tinker in the spare parts box to see if anything was useful for this and found an old FS fan cover I had 3d printed a while ago,i stopped using it as I lost the spacer so the fan blades clicked which was annoying while flying haha  :laugh:

dab of glue and a ziptie tada
