  • 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. :)

Got it from Quadcopters uk,  on pre-order for months I had forgotten about it. I did ring them about a month ago and asked when they were expecting a delivery only to find they were in the same position. 
I did the power mod as the voltage on it was 4.4 volts,.
First impression, very clean and sensitive  r/x.. that's the good news,  it is really power hungry, and the "intuitive menu"  is crap. Who's intuition they used is not defined.  The Furious FPV  in m.h.o  is streets ahead and very easy to use. I suppose i will get used to it in time.
A quick test at 25 mw  it had no trouble through 3 brick walls one of which was at an oblique angle and in my workshop full of metal and machinery. Field test next week ,if it ever stops raining.. :shrug:
Interesting feedback John. Stick with it and I'll eagerly await your further testing. Very jealous! 🤣

Gave the Rapid+Fire  a good range test (with spotter). So far so good no break up at all.. :o Kept the T/X  power at 25mw, went down too 25ft at extreme  range while sitting between two cars and partialy obscured stone wall. Antennas used were a Gav cloverleaf with 10cm stalk, and an ImersionSpironet 8dbi  patch.
If only the controls wern't such a p.i.t.a. :laugh:

Good to hear. What fpv camera are you using? Apparently there's been issues with some of the foxeers.

From what I have found out the 3 month gap between the first batch and issue 3 was sorting the p.s.u. problem and the camera one ..I'm working on the " If it aint bust don't mess with it"  school of thought.😀

theres one currently hiding in my backgarden shrubs after my bengal found it last night and discovered the amusement that can be had playing "musical frog".

basically he cornered it, then proceeded to stomp it with his front paw till it made the unholy noise that only a distressed frog can before he'd leap back and then repeat the whole thing again, after the sixth or seventh round I got so peeved at heaing "ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!" every couple of minutes I went out and chased him off before shooing the unhurt but now angry looking frog into the shrubs were it could hide. :banghead:

Childbirth? Pah, It's one of the most natural things in the world. If they want to know about REAL pain, While getting out of the shower the other day I went and stubbed my big toe good and proper !!!!! Jesus, I almost wept !!!!

I can confidently say childbirth pales in comparison to one of those thankfully rare occasions when for no apparent reason whatsoever when a bloke does something as mundane and everyday as getting up off a couch or similar and it suddenly feels like one of his bollix has tied itself in a knot for the briefest couple of seconds that none the less feels like hours of scrutinizing agony.

its the following day long dull ache and absolute lack of explanation for what the feck just happened that gets ya. :banghead:
