  • 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. :)

That';s the awesome thing about our hobby; I can charge every battery there for 20p  ::)

:o  :o  :o  Shite that';s a lot of Lipos !

I know right. But I can go through 20-30 in a good session. I usually go out with 20 ish and end up recharging some in the field.

Had a test today and very impressed so far. At cruise speed good flight times , when punching the throttle loads of power.
The price is reasonable I thought at 13.90 each.



Hi where did you get the batteries from?

Postie brought me a new Pathfinder 2 hex, so I can practice hexes as well as quads, but I expected him to come tomorrow, so wasn';t in......  :cry

Hopefully he';ll have dropped it off at the nearest post office, so I can pick it up on my way home and then bunk off work tomorrow to fly it!  :laugh:

Haven';t even charged mine yet, let alone built the quad they need to go on  :banghead:.

Will be interested to hear your opinions! (I';m sure you said that a few days ago!)

They';re good buddy. Similar to the Turnigy graphene';s, but a lot lighter. I think the Turnigy graphene';s just have the edge in regards power though. I had a collision with my mates plane, his prop caught the lipo and it went up in smoke while I was 100ft up. Managed to land and get it off the quad before damage was done but it was pretty epic :laugh: It burned hard for a good few minutes! Video incoming..

A stupidly small Quanum Elite CMOS camera & 5.8Gig TX, some Turnigy Graphine LiPos (1000mAh) and some Gemfan 4x4.5 props.

Cheap Aomway 5.8 antennas arrived yesterday.

Now I just have to find something suitable to mount the CMOS camera onto so it';s big enough to mount onto the Morphite

Just got out of surgery so no pics today, but postie brought a simulator cable for my tgy-i6 tx, a bag of 3s balance cables, a pipette for high speed bearing grease, and some tarox high speed bearing grease. Looking forward to trying out the simulator cable. Anyone recommend a good - preferably free - simulator for Mac (or pc if there are no good mac ones)?

I use Heli-X6 on my MacBook Pro i5 retina and it gives me over 60fps and about 50 aircraft!! Helis and multis. You get a couple of helis and a quad with the free version, but it';s worth paying for the full version.
