  • 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. :)

Chinese Zombie Spies?
« on: August 12, 2017, 10:16:51 »
OK got you hooked with the tag line, but are we all inadvertently spying for China?

https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/commercial-drone-lands-on-hms-queen-elizabeth-unchallenged/

With the recent news that all US Military personnel should stop flying DJI UAS, and the recent easy to exploit Parot Drones, has China just brilliantly created an army of remote willing (if unaware) drone spies?...and they pay for the privilage!

nonesens and conspiracy theory, what anoys me more is the pilot:
What laws did I break:
Flying within 50m of a structure/ vehicle
Landing writhin 30m of the same

I am gonna give him e benefit of the doubt that the flying conditions were fine and then instantaneously turned so bad he had no opportunity to return or even start to return, cos that happens irl!

He couldn';t land on the 10m away and much safer due to no doors or hatches which people may come out of, dock?
How did he get the drone back, he claims he had to land there because of conditions, I don';t imagine he just bumbled on to the heat and took it, he took off, in those prevailing conditions? Nah he did the whole thing deliberatley, it is irresponsible and illegal, he should have his commercial licence revoked and be prosecuted.

considering the security and legal implications brought to the front regarding this obvious infringement of multiple laws and the seemingly irrational disregard of the operator of the unmanned aerial vehicle in question it would seem that there are very limited actions that can be taken in regard to legal proceedings that can be placed against the said operator which inturn leave a fundamental decision required in terms of punishment for the stated offences.....

This is click-bait! Chinese Zombie Spies indeed!  ;)

This story bears "all the hallmarks" of another false flag operation for propaganda purposes. 

Liberal Democrat MSP Jamie Stone said, "there is a serious question about security for the Royal Navy for it would have been quite easy for someone of evil intent to do something quite serious. Even a drone crashing into its radar could cause damage"   :frantic:

What a tit.  A parrot bebop wouldn';t even scratch the paint, even if a drone was plane sized and going at 200Mph it wouldn';t make much of a dent in an aircraft carrier. 

What';s the problem with flying around that ship anyway?

Its not like its in any way operational or has any aircraft to spy on.  In fact that ship is a total multi billion credit white elephant. 

The UK has no ability to use it in anger without the support of a multi-European task force or the USA to provide any kind of protection for it from real threats.  Cuts to the military have been enormous, the Harriers, the axing of the Nimrods and many many surface vessels, leaving almost no sub-hunter killer capability. There is now almost no anti-air or anti ship capabilities within the UK military to speak of with the removal of missile systems either.

The engines can';t work in warm water and the IT infrastructure runs on Windows XP!

They should have spent the money on public housing really.

How many fire-proof Grenfel towers could they have built with the cash instead?

This is click-bait! Chinese Zombie Spies indeed!

Completely!, but if it';s even slightly true that the Chinese Govt have requested access to all the flight data, images and video that gets transmitted back to DJI';s (Yes I know it was a Parot) servers then this would indeed be an intelligence coup!
Like other posters have said, there';s no way this was not deliberate....maybe do as the US military have just done and allow military installations to shoot them down?
There';s no way I';d fly my drone on or even near any military installation. Its just common sense not to?.....
I';m with@shawdreamer !!
I was on Summer Camp with the cadets last week, My Mavic wouldn';t even let me take off, even though I had an invitation to fly with the RAF Stations Model Aircraft Club ! Huge NFZ over it!
