  • 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...........

  • 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. :)

Did you crash today / this week?
« on: July 09, 2018, 09:15:09 »
We all know that crashing is part of the fun, not only do we learn from crashes but it gives us the excuse to purchase upgrades for those broken parts.

The recent weekly challenges have resulted in some great 'success videos' but I am sure there's a whole bunch of crash footage that would be equally interesting.

With this in mind I think we should embrace those crashes and hence this thread.

Here's a crash compilation from a few weeks ago to get started:



And from yesterday a few stills where a steel cable took out my GoPro screen protector:

Smashed my Air-ro into the underside of a viaduct on Friday evening, totalled the flight stack, antenna, vtx and camera.

Oh well nevermind :laugh:

That's what they call "very well done" in the business lol. I feel for you, Daich. Happened to me too a couple of times now as well.

Myself and TryingTo were scoping out a new spot last night, it was average but had a lovely valley down the middle with trees flanking either side. It called for some low and fast flying ... even after I took my goggles off the quad was still tumbling along, it really was something to watch  ::) ::)

A couple of bent props but other than that it was airborne again in 60 seconds

What type of frame do you. The 3 inch frames I have would have cracked with that type of roll.

This was a 5" Chameleon. The grass was relatively long, which helped, but if this had been onto hard soil / concrete then I'd definitely have broken something.
