What did the postman bring today?
« on: May 27, 2015, 16:08:51 »
As the title says "What parts did the postie bring you today?"

This always seems to be a popular one on forums, so "What did you postman deliver for YOU today?"

I'll kick it off with what i got...

3 x 6S 10000Mah Multistars for 'the ****** thing that refuses to fly straight'...


Some 250 spares from Phil (Makeitbuildit) which also arrived with a load of other props from china...

Was hoping my 6600 4s 10c's would turn up today (ordered over the weekend) but I only got the dispatch email this morning. Fingers crossed for tomorrow :smiley: I suspect they've had a rush on lipo's since they got some stock.

3 x 1300 3s  ::)

A modest order but happy!
(only problem is I got them delivered to work, now I've got to get 'em home)

Got my "unbreakable" props today. Not bad. Paid the extra $2 for expedited shipping and they were here in 10 days.
Well packaged and wrapped in a big cardboard box, if they are as unbreakable as they claim to be then they should have just slapped them in an envelope. :laugh:

Have to say they look very weedy, I'll be very impressed if they can hold their own.
Not entirely sure I was thinking of when I ordered, seem to have 6 pairs when I swear I wanted 10. :-/ Losing the marbles i think.

The last two weeks I am getting regular parcels. It is getting VERY difficult to hide them from my wife.
Made her feel good yesterday as SHE got a parcel...
Seriously though, some of us around here have taken an interest in indoor flying. We haven't started yet and at present we are all buying up micro servos, 10 gram motors, 10 amp ESCs and micro RXs.
Plus tons of other nick nacks.
So far these 'çheap' indoor fliers have cost me over $230 in the last week and a half.   :o  ::)
Thought I might get my wife one of these so she can join us.  http://www.banggood.com/Eachine-H8-Mini-Headless-Mode-2_4G-4CH-6-Axis-RC-Quadcopter-RTF-p-975808.html

Lol. Sounds like you could use some man counter argument logic. The last time the missus passed comment that I was wasting money on multi number 9 when I rarely fly 1, I simply countered that she had dozens of pairs of jeans and can only wear one. And so ended the conversation.
