  • 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. :)

Hi guys,

New to this forum, been browsing rc groups but i wanted something uk based to join.

Anyway i';m Mark from Redditch in Worcestershire, been flying F3K dlg only for the last couple of years but the quad bug has bitten again.

I see a couple of posts off Birmingham based guys and various races and meetups with a few miles radius of me should i ever wanna go down the racing route.

I haven';t, my dlg is a Vladimir Snipe and currently packed away after i pulled the servos to upgrade them and as far as quads goes, i';m still pretty much a beginner so i don';t run a Gopro, no dives here! haha.

My quads are a Torrent 110 which actually died last night for no reason so gotta box it up and send it into HH EU for repair. The other a cheap Furibee Fuuton 200 with damaged motors (snapped a couple of shafts cause Chinese alloy is made of cheese haha) gonna put cobra motors and esc';s on it i think.

All my models always seem to be in pieces or not working haha

Found a couple of pics of the Snipe and also a Loola from Fred modelisme that i have but might sell to buy quad stuff haha.

Blade Torrent and the Furibee 200 are just stock out the box so nothing different from all the others. I really want a Tom Smith Armattan now!

I';m not far away from you, I';m in Halesowen - where abouts do you fly fixed wing?
I fly fixed wing and Multirotors but not the little racers, I fly a 450 with gimbal and gopro clone and have a few toy grade quads. Fixed wing I fly powered and gliders and have a small HK dlg that';s nearing finished so will need to learn to fly it!!!
Oh and welcome to the good ship MultirotorUK!!!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!
