  • 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

  • atomiclama: Thanks, can't decide on fibre glass or laminate. Like the idea of fibre for some reason, don't know why.

  • atomiclama: @DB well you obviously need a bigger motor and ESC, as flying slower is just not possible.  ::)

  • hoverfly: If you put a couple of coats of Eze Kote on the wing before the laminate it sticks really well ..no lifting.. :smiley:

  • DarkButterfly: If it makes you feel better, I’m going to completely refurbish my falcon Evo with new balsa sides and new laminate ~~

Finally decided to upgrade my old FPV screen, So out with the budget 7" single VRX unit, And in with an equally budget orientated 7" screen, but now with diversity and DVR built in !

Woo hoo, What a rock and roll lifestyle I lead.  :laugh:

Start a thread on it and inform of your findings please!

I have a Black Pearl diversity screen (bought ages ago and def not budget) and frankly its rubbish, the menu system being particularly awkward and non user friendly. (no DVR or channel seek either, things I'd now consider essential)

I learnt long ago that if you're buying electronics with a "User interface", The cheaper the device, the less user friendly it's going to be.

I've had several cheap chinese touch screen car stereos, and most of them looked like the software for each feature (DVD, CD, Radio, And config menus) was cobbled together with code wrote for several other units, And by different programers. There was never a common style or method to use any of the layouts like you'd get with a name brand head unit.
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.

Skyzone Sky03 goggles

So want some of these. I had my HD3's, been so tempted to order all week as they went back down to £307 on Banggood.

Added the shims to the faceplate and that gave no light leaks, the image quality is far superior to my old fatshark attitude v2 and Sky01.

I picked them up from bg at that price and chose priority direct mail and got them in 6 days

I think I've kept the postman in a job just lately! I'm building a reptile 500 from scratch and every single component is coming through the post (admittedly, about a third has come by courier).

I can't vouch for today, I haven't been home but apparently yesterday my batteries arrived from bg (according to the tracking) but I'm told the parcel claims to be a charger (which is yet to arrive too) so I'm none the wiser.

With a bit of luck, the charger, motors propellers, propeller adapters, 2 meters of each (red and black) 14 awg wire and some strips of leds will all show up this week so I can finish assembling it and start worrying about how to set everything up.....

Well, because it was raining and I was bored I've ordered some red ones. Go with my SWANK X-Lite.
Damn you Hozza you should have said they were pants.

Are you in UK and did you get the batteries please? I cannot get ANY batteries sent to me in UK by Banggood, the last two (micro quad packs) were intercepted and returned, and now I have "We cannot send to your destination" on all battery pages.

Yeah, uk. I guess that's why they were marked as a charger.

HOWEVER, I've since seen some nearly the same on ebay for less and uk seller apparently so I'm not sure I'd worry about buying abroas to be honest.
