  • Reman: Like I said, In the past I've had a handful of packs "Go off" at me like fireworks after bad crashes (Usually with RC helis), So it's hard to get that image out of your head while stripping down Li-Po's. :)
    Today at 11:22:54
  • shawdreamer: the horror stories will always incite worry when messing about with Lipo's but its the same as everything else when working on electronics alike, alsong as your careful and methodical there's very little to panic about, I regularly recycle 4s's with a single dead cell into usable 3s packs, end of the days its alot more economical, safer and enviro friendly than having to bin them....just a pain that the dead cell is NEVER one of the outer cells so you always end up having to strip a good cell off to get at the bad cell before putting it back afterwards, its like dropping toast, it'll always land buttered side down and inevitably covered in pet fur :angry:
    Today at 00:11:16
  • Reman: Just did the one electrical job that still scares me. I dismantled some Lipo's with knacked cells and built usable packs out of the good cells. I've had packs go "VOOOOOOSH" at me in the past so I'm always slightly scared of having bare lipo contacts anywhere near what I'm working on, But all appears to have gone well and one of them is currently doing a charge/discharge cycle to make sure nothings a miss. :)

  • Reman: My original Dremel Pro made it to 14 years of heavy weekend use (And abuse) before it crocked. Dismantled that but it turned out to be a "Control module" fault, And Dremel made it ni on impossible to get into that without pooching it completely. :(

  • Reman: I did double check it with a metre (Mainly because I knew if I didn't check the polarity this would be the time the manufacturer had gone off script and put the negative in the middle of the coax) and felt slightly cheated because it was only making 19.7 volts. :)

What did the postman bring today?
« on: May 27, 2015, 16:08:51 »
As the title says "What parts did the postie bring you today?"

This always seems to be a popular one on forums, so "What did you postman deliver for YOU today?"

I';ll kick it off with what i got...

3 x 6S 10000Mah Multistars for ';the ****** thing that refuses to fly straight';...

Some 250 spares from Phil (Makeitbuildit) which also arrived with a load of other props from china...

Was hoping my 6600 4s 10c';s would turn up today (ordered over the weekend) but I only got the dispatch email this morning. Fingers crossed for tomorrow :smiley: I suspect they';ve had a rush on lipo';s since they got some stock.

Got my "unbreakable" props today. Not bad. Paid the extra $2 for expedited shipping and they were here in 10 days.
Well packaged and wrapped in a big cardboard box, if they are as unbreakable as they claim to be then they should have just slapped them in an envelope. :laugh:

Have to say they look very weedy, I';ll be very impressed if they can hold their own.
Not entirely sure I was thinking of when I ordered, seem to have 6 pairs when I swear I wanted 10. :-/ Losing the marbles i think.
