  • 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. :)

Congrats!  That's a bit of a good deal.   ~~  I thought I saw that deal mentioned somewhere.  Back up to full price now.  Maybe they'll be back down for Black Friday.

Mine is still in it's packaging, just in case it goes cheaper on black friday :)

This little puppy...

Afro 20amp aio pdb,esc, cc3d.  Lights up like a flippin xmas tree when powered, along with the standard cc3d status lights each onboard esc has its own set of status lights....nearly gave me a epileptic fit when I plugged it in (put a stock cc3d alongside it to show how compact it is), only foreseeable downside (though in a sorta good way) is that the entire boards had a protective coating put on it, which means its gonna be a pig to get good solder joints when it comes to direct soldering the motors to the board even if I spend some proper time cleaning the solder points :hmm:

itll be going into the latest version of my Sparkie design...


all seem good with it as far as I can make out....and all for £7odd and thats from the UK warehouse too! :frantic:

then on the flipside these turned up from chinaland...

£3 each in the BG black friday sale

for good reason too...... their cack!, 1 refuses to maintain a solid signal while the other randomly looses binding with my turnigy evo, theyll be gettin binned and Ill use some proper non-cheapo clone Fs-A8s's from HK for the new sparkies

now I just need two more Afro aoi boards, my 3 different transparent ABS filament reals, and the receivers to turn up and Ill have three of my new sparkie designs ready for the lads on boxing day, I can see us dissappearing for quite some time once when we get them down the woods ::)

According to the Royal mail tracker page, They've put my latest package of cheap tat from TomTop safely in my Post Office box....... Erm..... I've never actually HAD a Post Office box ?!?!
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.

Um.... two Cheerson Mini FPV drones.
Foxed me for a while as I hadn't ordered them. It even crossed my mind that they might be promotional / sponsorship. Traced the return address to a warehouse near Heathrow and the tracking number matched the one for Josh's QX7. Looks like BangGood sent the wrong thing  :shrug:

Asked them to resend. Wonder if they'll send a courier for the drones? If not, then bonus pressies for the boys  ~~

For me...Nothing, 2 weeks of waiting and watching the same RM tracking message of "unable to confirm the status of your item"
According to the tracker the package was scanned into Heathrow but now it's vanished.
Banggood have asked me to wait till next weekend before they will start investigating, but not holding out any hope of it arriving.
Just hope they will either refund or resend the stuff.
Looks like the hex will have to wait till next year before getting built.

Banggood packages can take up to and sometimes longer than 10 days to be delivered after entering uk,its happened to me numerous times,so your not an odd one out.

Look on the bright side, from experience, the longer you wait once an item hits the UK, it seems (contrary to logic) that the less likely to get customs charged you are.

Some more translucent Hula Hoops for internal racing!



Got to put the LED light strings in them and make the bases.I make these from weighted square drain pipe fittings that also house the battery boxes/switches today. These allow the hoop to rotate if hit really hard, saving the quad at the expense of having to reset them.

A bashed up box of DJI Goggles. They'd been sent as is, without any protective packaging at all, via Parcelforce.  :rolleyes: Looking forward to giving these a go on Christmas day when I 'hope' a certain selfie drone will be under the tree!
