  • 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. :)

BR I have the EV100s as well and I used a Quanum V2 box goggles before. So I know where you are coming from on large screens. I too am impressed with the EV100, for the money they are great. As you say the image is a little down a tube but after a few mins you dont notice at all, well I don't bt that is probably as I am concentrating so much  ::)
I also love the convenience of just lifting them up to enable me to flip my Tiny7 back over after its 6 millionth crash of the day. They do cases for them for about £8 which I might invest in. I also have the dvd which I have only tested as yet but it seemed to work well although the av lead is way too long even the short one!

I have the orange cased DVD on one of my headsets. Works well, but I won't go on about the number of times I have powered down the headset and DVD before saving the file, losing the record.   :rolleyes:

Now even some of the cheapest headsets with built in DVD have a save before off auto facility, does your one?

Until they do, I'll not buy any more.

I do have the orange one on my Quanum V2. I will try and test the ev100dvr to see if it has auto save this evening.

Not multirotor related, but what the hell.

Mums Jack Russell loves tennis balls, So when BangGood listed 280mm tennis ball style footballs I HAD to get a couple just to see his reaction. They turned up on thursday, And it's bloody hysterical watching him trying to pick them up. :)

I need a pay rise........ Though I'd settle for a reduction in the amount of hours I need to work to get the same money.

Read the reviews on site, a distance down a couple say it does NOT auto save if power lost.

Highly recommend these batteries for their cheap price. Not sure if they are actually graphene or not but they do recover well from high discharge.

I have had two Infinity "Graphene" 1500mAh 4S for about a year.  Been OK.

Have been told that true Graphene is so expensive that NO packs truly could be called Graphene!
