  • 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.

  • 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...........

  • 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 !!!

  • 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. :)

A single, solitary, And very lonely looking right angle SMA adapter in a plastic envelope.
It got split off a BangGood order to come from another warehouse. When I picked up the crumpled ball of plastic with a shipping label on it my first thought was that it was a parcel that Royal Mail had burst open in the system and just delivered the empty bag again. :)
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.

Well, so far, naff all!! But I did get a text message telling me that they attempted to deliver it, and that a card has been left, detailing what must be done to retrieve the package.

Oddly, I had been up for a good hour before the delivery attempt was made. I even saw the big, red Parcelforce van outside my house, stationary for a good 20 seconds or so, before it pulled off.

No doorbell, no knock, no card, no parcel  :angry:

I even paid extra to get the bits here today.... I';m wondering if my hex build will ever be finished...

A quick call to Parcelforce, and the nice lady says she';ll call me back with an update. Those wishing to hold their breath need not apply!  :crossfingers:

Not a lot, which isn';t what I';ve been expecting. Royal mail, or the eBay sellers, seem to be dropping the ball lately. Been expecting parcels since Tuesday... Still nothing.  :-/

YAY!! Parcel force came up with the goodies!! It was our usual driver, and he didn';t call earlier because he knew we';ve got 2 young kids and he thought we were all asleep. He had every intention of calling back later, but his deliveries are computer-controlled and the only way he could skip the drop off was to pretend that he';d tried a delivery. What a nice bloke  :smiley:

Anyhoo, I set him straight, so he know';s we';re up before 6am most days!

Here';s my new ZYX-M FC and a couple of Graphene 5.2Ah 3S 15C jobiess!

Ooh, these are nice boxes. They even give Apple  run for their money!

Joking apart, they just look like felt bags. I suppose you could use them to transport batteries inside your fire-proof battery bag (which I know EVERYONE uses, right??). But I';m sure they';re not fireproof, sadly.
