  • 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. :)

Make your own. Get some arms.

http://www.banggood.com/Carbon-Fiber-Arm-For-250mm-FPV-Quadcopter-Replacement-QAV250-ZMR250-p-947008.html

Make centre plate out of whatever is lying around, bit of ply, plastic.

Done.
I could but I want somthing light and strong so I don';t have to come home after every crash
thease cheepo frames are good for a fiver

4 arms are nearly 16 quid and you still have all the hassle
Of building something

My 4 in 1 esc';s turned up today......... and 4 boxes of 10 "Unbreakable" 5.0x5.0 3 blade props, 3x pdb';s,  a nice variate of different lenght frame stand offs, and a metric shed load of those little universal neoprene quad undercarriage feet things.
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.

Two cans of Plasti-Dip to spray my Inductrix frames, Blaze Orange and Blaze Yellow (what we call flourescents). Claimed to adhere to the flexible plastic used.  Have already done a new still in pack spare frame Orange.......  looks OK  :cool: ...........will swap the parts over and then clean the grass stains off the most used one and if the orange stays on OK I will paint that Yellow for the other one

The LEDS on the frame help to locate when wishes exceed skills but when they disappear into the greenery in bright light, it';s a lot more of an issue to locate.  (They are a bit small for a recovery buzzer and my wife won';t get up at 05:00 to "spot", damn inconsiderate I call it................!!  :laugh: )

Should have went for their colour flip or glow in the dark range as they would look even better on an Inductrix than the fluro stuff :)

Sadly I can';t buy the spray version as they won';t ship them to Belfast (and it';s almost 20 quid per can buying from Dublin)

Their tinned stuff is fantastic too

Not much kit, but what I have I like
