  • Reman: I did double check it with a metre (Mainly because I knew if I didn't check the polarity this would be the time the manufacturer had gone off script and put the negative in the middle of the coax) and felt slightly cheated because it was only making 19.7 volts. :)

  • Bajadre: yeah heat and wring never a good thing only a matter of time :(
    January 04, 2019, 10:12:57
  • Bad Raven: Well, it should! Rated for 24v. Be careful, have you checked the PSU output?  Many psu that (say) are supposed to be 12v actually output 16-18v. Is your 20v actually less than 24v??
    January 04, 2019, 08:41:14
  • Reman: Just modified the cable on a 20V 7A PSU to connect to my TS100........ It.... Erm..... Heats up a bit quicker than it did on 12V. LOL !!!

  • Reman: I didn't try to taste it, but it gave off that kind of smell that gets you in the back of the throat. :)

Ooops!
« on: December 07, 2014, 21:13:53 »
Ooooh, an Aeroplane section.... Maybe it should be a "Single Rotor" section?

It was way too windy so I took the Wot4 Foame for a spin.. As usual I was flying high and then the nice  Taranis lady says...  "Telemetry Lost"   :o

Down from 900 foot or so in a spiral dive without the battery.................................

Saved by a tree!



With only a break in the rear of the fuselage, all glued up and ready to go again  :smiley:
This is getting expensive!

Haha, been there got the badge and had a few giggles climbing the tree to retrieve it,  think what people were thinking watching a 60+ year old climbing a tree to retrieve his ';toy'; plane!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!

At least it wasn';t a friggin'; gorse bush with attendant and copious brambles  :o

I ';flew'; a plank into one of those recently - then you had a 60+ year old getting cut to ribbons in front of several dog walkers trying to retrieve his ';toy'; plane ... I did more damage retrieving it than the ';arrival'; did... both to the plane and me ... I';ve never scuttled back to the car so fast when I finally retrieved what was left of it ... :tongue: :laugh:

As so did the battery fall out rather than you lost signal, was wondering as you should be able to fly farther than that?

This is one of my shortest flights ever:
