considered using my heavy lift H-copter for dog turd bombing...

one of my previous neighbours used to simply open his back gate and let his dog out to crap all over the grassy hill behind my house were the local kids play and I occassional test fly new frames.

realised there was a simpler method, got my garden spade out and played catapult the choccie log into his backgarden whenever he did it. :whistling:

That was it';s max charge rating and it took it without issue, but I wouldn';t do it again. Charging a single 1300mAh at 15.6A just doesn';t seem like a good idea.

Yes, you';d better charge it with 1-3C.

I rebuilt my old 2x nicd beard trimmer using a USB charging board and one of the Turnigy 750mah 1s Li-Po I';d got for my QX90....... Does that count?

Going from 2.4v to 4.2 has made it go like the clappers, And it also doesn';t self discharge in 2 weeks like it always used to, So I see that as a win ! :)
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.

When I was learning with a Wot trainer the wind changed direction so I had to fly across at 45deg and approach from the right side and behind my shoulder. I gave it a few passes before I committed myself but you had to turn sharp to miss the trees. I didn';t hit the trees and got quite good so here I came. A bit quick, too quick, I used some rudder as well as ailerons but I got the plane to slip sideways which took me by surprise and I lost my concentration. Next thing went through my mind was which way to put the sticks, minds gone blank, cars parked to one side, field the other and it';s coming towards me, sticks the wrong way I';ll pile into some cars, sticks the other way I';m ok. Took too long to decide but made the right decision, now heading for the field and me !!! Too low to go round again, might take my head off so I went for a landing. It came down ok streight for me so I tried not to panic and jumped at the right moment. As I was facing the wrong way the plane shot under my legs and did a perfect landing behind me. Wet myself but it';s somthing that will stay with me forever.
