  • 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. :)

Lunchtime camera mount build.
« on: July 10, 2018, 14:26:01 »
I was pretty pleased with the latest iteration of my Runcam3 mount for the ZMR200, so decided to go with what works on the SCX200.

Nice light bit of aluminium... wonder how that'll compare to a cage-type 3dprint? Drilled out a few holes to lose a gram or so.  :rolleyes:



Trial fitting. Looks good. Clean up some sharp edges, bit of velcro and we're golden!

Super nice effort Andy!

I suspect your velcro strap is now the weak link. Take a look at the kevlar straps from quadcopters.co.uk, they're really worth it. (I appreciate you're then moving the weak link to the bolt holes on the carbon  ;) )

Yep, that was the first strap I put my hands on for the photo, it's actually part broken and I just use it for marking charged packs.
The screws go down into metal posts, so if THAT breaks then I think we're going to be looking at a rainy afternoon rebuilding anyhow.
My main problem used to be the cam sliding forwards and out in an impact. But velcro below stopped that.

That design has suffered some exciting crashes anchored to plastic posts and no loss. My recent cam ejection was actually caused by the velcro on the plate failing - I hadn't given the metal a key before gluing. Glue isn't a fan of highly polished metal. Notice the 'brushed' effect on the top surface  :cool:

Hardest part of building it is making the space!

The problem you are gonna have Andy is there is no isolation between the cam and the frame, with 3d printed mount there is an element of that just because of the material, suggest some rubber or neoprene between the metal and the cam, ideally something like umagrip, should stop the cam slipping and solve the isolation

Back screws have rubber washers for just that purpose, I left screw thread to put some in the front too but I ran out.
