  • 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. :)

Similar devices??? Flymos...

Apparently it is possible  ,first you give some people a large sum of cash then fly while they watch, then fill in a form before flying as this form prevents the a/c from crashing.  :whistling:

Joking aside, the poor Police are likely just about as confused as anyone over what constitutes a drone. Despite EASA statements, etc, its dead easy to still find people regarding RC planes or helicopters as "not drones".

Still come back to a conversation at the field quite a time back now where several flyers were expressing the view that Free Flight would not be part of the regulations.

When I pointed out they already were, and anyway, how on earth did they think that an uncontolled UAV able to go were it damn well pleases is safer and less in need of regulation than one under radio control it all went very quiet.................

We've been the regulation versus education route SO many times now, it's simpler to regulate............. it doesn't EVER work, but its simpler!

Yesterday evening a prat came up our road in a BMW 5 series convertible, top down to be really visible,  looking down at keying his hand held phone in his lap. Even after near side swiping a couple of parked cars, he STILL kept on the move, only just "kneeing" the steering wheel in time to miss two more, then used an island as a turn point, emerging without looking, and came back yabbering away with it clamped to his ear. There were a number of places he could have parked.

The HD video from my Dash Cam is ever so clear.........................
