  • ched999uk: Definately follow up. I once didn't get an interview that I had all experience and quali required. So I called them, to be told they filled job internally but they had another coming up next week. Would I like to be considered for that! I said yes and got the job!!! So keep trying mate you will get there.

  • Wyntrblue: yea i have been. and they say thanks for your call can i call you back... then radio silence... all very annoying, still im applying for around 10 a day at the moment and the as the saying goes. throw enough mud at a wall and some will stick.
    May 24, 2018, 13:38:11
  • DarkButterfly: Best to follow them up, you may get an interview that way
    May 24, 2018, 13:06:33
  • mo_miah: with the number of applicants they don't have time to respond to everyone, normally they say they will contact you within x weeks for an interview and if you dont hear back then assume its a no
    May 24, 2018, 13:04:05
  • Wyntrblue: why do prospective employers never ever call you back. as of today i have applied for 37 jobs in 3 days (really need a new job)

  • hoverfly: My mistake the Hornet is still going...[link]
    May 23, 2018, 17:25:27
  • hoverfly: F/wings  made one called the Hornet  it's not listed now so i assume it's discontinued.  I have 3 Ravens  in various set ups , they go very well with multirotor motors . If you laminate them they are almost  indestructible,  the only bit to suffer is the wing tips. Absolute bargains... ~~
    May 23, 2018, 16:39:06
  • mo_miah: raven does look good and cheap enough
    May 23, 2018, 16:24:54

A while back I ordered 3 IR Blocked lenses, But BangGood sent the IR Sensitive ones instaid. They quickly agreed to resend the lenses and they arived today........ 2x IR Blocked, And another of the feckin'; IR Sensitive. I';m not going to bother raising another ticket. I';ve got 2 of the lenses I wanted (And 4 I didn';t). I';m losing my faith in them to get anything right. The way things are going with BangGood lately, they seem to be running some kind of international lucky dip !

I';m almost tempted to find the cheapest item they sell and buy 20 of them in separate packages. Feck knows what would turn up, But it would have to be worth more than what I';d actually ordered !!! :)

I';m wondering what I';m going to find in the next package. It';s ment to be replacment motors for the miss picked replacment motors that were to replace the originally miss picked motors. I think I';ll be letting my Labrador sniff that one before opening it. Going by recent experience there could literally be anything in there. If the dog goes mental it could mean they';ve accidentally sent me a feckin'; Snow leopard (While my dog';s sniffing, I';ll be carefully listening for big angry snarly noises....... But from a safe distance) !!!!! LOL !!!!
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.

My dad just got back from a job in L.A. and while he was there I asked him to pop into PiroflipRC store, turns out its not a traditional walk in store but mail order only! but the guy who runs it Sergio was a really cool guy and sorted my dad out with some new 3 inch props that are hard to get in the UK at the moment, some Lumenier 3040x3 and Racekraft 3076x3 props, just got married so not had time to try them yet but as soon as were back from honeymoon going to slap them on my BH 1407';s and see how they perform.

This little beastie:



Not had a chance to give it a proper go yet but from a few clips of me walking around the house, it looks like a pretty good camera for the price. It definitely feels more solid than my hero 4 silver and for the price I';m not going to be as worried about strapping it on a quad.

Very frustrated post!

Finally got myself some goggles.... pushed the boat out so I could get a good pair rather than a big box for my face.... only to find that my 12v reg has popped and that I';ve also managed to chop through my VTX cable which I thought I had taped down out of the way whilst I was flying LOS.

Lovely goggles and the front camera works but that';s about all I can say for now!

2 x v2.4 esc';s for the cheerson cx-20 finally arrived on the ';slow boat'; from China. Wasn';t willing to wait 5-6 weeks so I repaired the faulty esc';s a month ago with new capacitors, but it';s nice to have a couple of spares on hand as they';re hard to find in the UK.

Some of these COB LED units:-

and some of these:-

https://www.banggood.com/6W-76led-COB-LED-Chip-520mA-WhiteWarm-White-For-DIY-DC-12V-p-960210.html

They are replacing lower power LED strips in an Aquarium (Shrimp) so will be on long hours a day, be interesting to see how long they last!!

the square ones aernt actually that bad, give off fair light (used 4 in a outside garden floodlight).

I wouldn';t use the brilliant white ones with an aquarium though, the poor shrimp will go soddin blind, stick with "warm whites", oh and you might wanna add some heatsink fins to the back if your gonna run them at their max input 12v for long periods as they still get hot despite the alu backing (not instant death hot but enough to reduce their life span)

A new battery, gemfan props and some rubber stand offs from HobbyRc and a replacement PDB  from Electric Wingman...

I always seem to order from both suppliers at the same time and have had to notch service from both every time, both going the extra mile to be helpful.

Very much recommend them both.
