  • hoverfly: Still have a couple of orange tipple batts still working,   mainly part time... ::)

  • 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.
    July 16, 2018, 08:37:09
  • 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...........
    July 15, 2018, 17:51:40
  • 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 !!!
    July 15, 2018, 16:27:21
  • 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. :)

Ordered just before I went away, arrived a few days later, finally picked it up today ... *screeeem*

Edit: Screencapture added, showing PWM at 1800 using a Servo Tester to generate the waveform. The display is set to show all of the available measurements below the waveform itself. You can set it to show a select few  that you';re interested in.

A nice scope Danny, did you notice how it shows noise on the main signal. Perfect for tracking noise on power lines etc. A good investment and tool for your hobby.

Another CC1563 camera. My Inductrix will be here today as well, but not until 3pm :( Much as though I love DPD';s delivery service, it can be a bit depressing knowing something won';t be with you until late in the day!

Earlier in the week, I got all the bits I needed for this, well the bit';s I didn';t already have kicking around somewhere...

Specs please ? :>

RotorX atom Frame
RotorX 1104 4000kv Motors
RotorX 3020 props
Naze32
TX5823 vtx and aomway antenna
Kiss ESC';s
CC1563 camera

I';ll post up a proper thread about it somewhere later. It should generate around 170g thrust per corner and its around 140g AUW with a 450mah 65c battery.

I suspect there may be a lot of small frames coming. DYS and EAchine have clone motors available now, HQ have just announced a 3030 prop with the same direct fitment.

The only fly in the ointment is very little option for HD recording. I might get an 808 camera, or try decasing a mobius or runcam, but that will have to wait until next month I suspect.
