  • Reman: Got stuck in traffic yesterday. After an hour I started using my phone (And an OTG cable) to look through the media files on a keyring of my old USB sticks. Found one that had the entire run of "Firefly" on it. I got through 3 episodes before the traffic started moving again....... God, That really was an amazing show.

  • hoverfly: I coated a couple of Slipstreams  a few years ago  It stiffened up the wing nicely .On the down side although it prevented dings when i had an high speed"arrival" it left the resin cracked. and the glass lifted slightly.  Well stuck laminate stiffens the wing and is flexible..

  • DarkButterfly: I'm doing laminate, just put my order in for some, also got some balsa wood for the side parts, had to use a kitchen knife to seperate the foam from the busted wood

My first FPV gear, Black Pearl screen and Immersion 25Mw VTX, all tested and working, fitted my home made antennas and what a difference they are to the stock ones even at close range you can see how much better they are.

Thanks to the guys at BYOD

Quanum v2 addon kit and some printed parts for my new Yi camera.  I';m amazed at the turnaround and quality of print from Phil at makeitbuildit.co.uk.  Ordered yesterday morning, arrived today.  Stellar service  ::)

Not exactly a spare part and something a bit different, but just been delivered this.

It';s my first go at Airplanes.  Should be a bit of fun!

Got these today. 1000mah 4s 25-50c


I guess its only an extra 150mah but was suprised they only weigh 5g more than the 850mah 4s I was using.. They';re not as bulky as the 850s either.

Mini tri is here from Rc-explorer finally! I forgot they celebrate Ascension day over there in that Europe so was delayed by a couple of days - pics later :)

Also - Aluminium arm frame set and some spare CF ones for my acro quad - now thinking about doing a super lightweight build with the CF frame and transferring the 2204 motors to the aluminium armed frame - should help with crash impact.

Put elsewhere here due history of interest, but I have just received two Diatone ET 160 frames, and the base frame of 2mm (actually 1.98mm) of the first two I bought has been changed to 2.65mm (actually 2.57 to 2.78).

Looks considerably thicker than the dimensions suggest.

I bought two as I was going to do an extreme one and would have bonded the two bases together, now I';m undecided!!  Maybe I';ll strip the bigger motored 2mm one, bond one of each base size an so and make it 4.65mm.!!  :cool:

No just F330, but doubt I would notice the difference.

Lol several people here swear by them, never tried them but the t5045 tris work fine, just a little too indestructible, crashes were starting to damage he motor, switched back to hq since cheaper and easier to change a broken prop than a motor

there';s hardly any surface on the blade, not sure why but they don';t look quite right to me, when you look at the TJ5045 and 5045BN, then look at the TJ4045 and 4045BN, the TJ4045 blade looks skinnier than it should be IMHO, i mean great for flight time but otherwise no good.

not sure if i';m describing it right :laugh:
