  • 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. :)
    July 15, 2018, 08:28:14
  • 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. :)

Very useful stuff.  I use it all over the place, like in my tool box drawers to stop stuff sliding around too much.  The pound shop sells rolls of it.

Found the perfect thing.
It';s a Silica gel pad 145mm x 90mm x about 2mm. It is designed for use on a dashboard to hold a mobile phone. I can get 2 or 3 battery pads out of it and it was only 59p in home bargains ::) It is squishy and slightly tacky and seems to stick quite well to carbon and battery.

Ive personally used a few different methods in the bast, including the dashboard gel pads that work pretty well unless they get even slightly moist (from landing on grass etc) after which they work like bloody ice instead, you just have to watch out for it and your fine.

now though I used a sticky foam pad methed I came up with.

You basically use the sticky backed foam pads you buy for furniture feet (so they dont scratch your lovely wood floor), you attach a large piece to your frame with a smaller square cut out its middle, you take the smaller piece and attach that to you battery, then the two interlock when strapped down, do the same with all you batteries and presto........feckers dont budge a millimetre even when your thrashing the poor frame :laugh:
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

alternively alot of frames (such as the zmr';s) have standardized holes in their plates for frame add-ons and if you size it right the same foam will slot into them also...
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

been the best method Ive used so far and I havnt had a single battery slip since using it.

Very good to know the gel pads dont work when they get wet. I will watch out for that.
I like your interlocking pads system.
Cheers
