  • 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.

  • 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. :)

Got out to another new spot tonight. Spent 1 hour walking trying to find a way to get to it, eventually got there but only had time for 2 packs each. It was very dense undergrowth so spotting duties were to the max.



Wicked adventures!! :))

Great weather today. My local field had very short grass and it had all yellowed off so no chance of my quad disappearing in a crash. Flew 3 packs and only crashed once. Tbh i was taking it easy. No fancy acro, just cruising about. Clipped a tree branch and went into a tumble, quickly threw the flight mode into angle and managed to get the quad under control before it hit the ground. Still need to get my throttle under control, this thing picks up altitude quick and its only using 5040 props. I'd be all over the place with anything else

Flew my whoop around the garden chasing the kids and building up a bit of a circuit. Those things are so much fun!

I'm currently on holiday, we are in a cottage and I have a bug field to play with

I have flown every day and am building up my courage with the Air-Ro! I have tried FOV a few times but I'm still better LOS especially when it's windy.

I also brought my whoop and have been flying that FPV which is great fun, out of the cottage front door, around the hot tub and back in through the kitchen door!  I guess I'm less worried of losing the whoop or damaging anything?

Went to Belas Knap,  bronze age burial chamber but nobody was in. :shrug: Wind forecast was 5--6..mph which it was when i got there, by the time i launched there were gusts coming in at around 20 and very lumpy.
When i got back to the car park the chap next to me had had his car broken into, they made a hell of a mess of the windows. To add insult to injury there was a large sign in the hedge with a massive lump of concrete on it saying car thieves operate in this area. The car park at the White horse hill suffers badly as well, mainly targeting cars with models in them /bmfa stickers in the window etc looking for radio gear.. :angry: What a cunch of bunts.
