  • 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. :)

Another epic spot, thought I';d try to keep things super smooth to make the most of the expansive flying area - I loved it!

Hope you enjoy...

Lol - thanks for your comment. This made me laugh out loud, and I needed cheering up after a hard day at work. 

If you need a steer on parts let me know and I can advise if it would help.  Unfortunately I can';t help on finance! 🤣🤣

Hi Hoverfly - thanks.  ~~ 

Yeah, it was a great spot.  Hopefully we will be back there soon.  I will be posting another video from a slightly different spot in the next couple of days.

Lol - I like the sounds of FPV hands.  When you find some send me a link!  ::)

Thanks for the kind words - Flying smooth is tricky, you just have to remain relaxed.  Is less about skills and more about your state of mind.  I have some footage from another flight, finger crossed I';ll be posting later this week!

Cool - that will be a nice build and its pretty much exactly how I started out.  I had a disco close running an APM flight controller.

Just make sure you don';t go too heavy on the battery in search of longer flight times.  power to weight ratio is the key to good flight characteristics.  I got this wrong when I started and it took me ages to realise it was too heavy.

Look forward to seeing some videos when you get it in the air!

Planning on using a multistar 4s 5200mah but mounted on the top plate to get it forward for good balance, the naza and RX will be mounted underneath the top plate

I was running 5200mah at 3s but it was too heavy.  At 4s you will probably be ok.
