  • 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..

That';s the awesome thing about our hobby; I can charge every battery there for 20p  ::)

:o  :o  :o  Shite that';s a lot of Lipos !

I know right. But I can go through 20-30 in a good session. I usually go out with 20 ish and end up recharging some in the field.

It';s an iCharger 308 Duo. I was expecting it to be good but it has really impressed me. Highly recommended  ~~

Had a test today and very impressed so far. At cruise speed good flight times , when punching the throttle loads of power.
The price is reasonable I thought at 13.90 each.



Hi where did you get the batteries from?

Postie brought me a new Pathfinder 2 hex, so I can practice hexes as well as quads, but I expected him to come tomorrow, so wasn';t in......  :cry

Hopefully he';ll have dropped it off at the nearest post office, so I can pick it up on my way home and then bunk off work tomorrow to fly it!  :laugh:

Haven';t even charged mine yet, let alone built the quad they need to go on  :banghead:.

Will be interested to hear your opinions! (I';m sure you said that a few days ago!)

They';re good buddy. Similar to the Turnigy graphene';s, but a lot lighter. I think the Turnigy graphene';s just have the edge in regards power though. I had a collision with my mates plane, his prop caught the lipo and it went up in smoke while I was 100ft up. Managed to land and get it off the quad before damage was done but it was pretty epic :laugh: It burned hard for a good few minutes! Video incoming..

A stupidly small Quanum Elite CMOS camera & 5.8Gig TX, some Turnigy Graphine LiPos (1000mAh) and some Gemfan 4x4.5 props.

Cheap Aomway 5.8 antennas arrived yesterday.

Now I just have to find something suitable to mount the CMOS camera onto so it';s big enough to mount onto the Morphite

Just got out of surgery so no pics today, but postie brought a simulator cable for my tgy-i6 tx, a bag of 3s balance cables, a pipette for high speed bearing grease, and some tarox high speed bearing grease. Looking forward to trying out the simulator cable. Anyone recommend a good - preferably free - simulator for Mac (or pc if there are no good mac ones)?

I use Heli-X6 on my MacBook Pro i5 retina and it gives me over 60fps and about 50 aircraft!! Helis and multis. You get a couple of helis and a quad with the free version, but it';s worth paying for the full version.
