  • 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. :(

    January 05, 2019, 12:42:05
  • 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. :)

hmmmmmm interesting!
« on: November 14, 2017, 11:57:19 »
just popped up on BG (typically right after I bought a new TX but heyho)

https://www.banggood.com/IRangeX-iRX-IR8M-2_4G-8CH-Multi-Protocol-Transmitter-With-PPM-S_BUS-Mini-Receiver-p-1226058.html?rmmds=newArrivals&cur_warehouse=CN

Description:
Brand name: iRangeX
Item number: iRX-IR8M
Band: 2.4GHz
Channels: 8
Color: White, Black (optional)
Mode: Mode 2, Mode 1 (optional)
Computer Radio: Yes
Outpulse: 1000-2000ms
Model Memery: 30
Modulation: "4 IN 1" CYRF6936, CC2500, NRF2401, A7105
Range: Full
Telemetry: Yes
Transmitter (Tx) Battery Type: 2S Lithium lon Battery/ 4S "AA" 1.5V

Features:
* i8X-IR8M transmitter can act like a USB drive. Managing models, configuration, icons, and themes is as easy as copying a file.
* Supporting for up to 255 different models in transmitter memory.
* Fully configurable themes including bitmaps, fonts.
* Flexible transmitter configuration, remap any switches or buttons to any purples. Also Virtual Channels for additional functionality.
* All text is localized, user-adjustable mode configurations (1, 2, 3 or 4)

Amiccom: A7105: Flysky AFHDS2A, Hubsan
Nordic Semiconductor: NRF24L01: Hisky, Syma, Assan and mose other Chinese models.

on first glance it all seems remarkably good, the protocol support and claimed "full range" in particular.

The handset style is also very T-evo'ish too which I like.

but whats really caught my attention is the price.....£62????

just seems too good to be true now

thoughts anyone?

Spec looks really good, I would be concerned with the buttons on the left handle.
The game controller style is crappy, more  for couch potatoes. ;)

I mean if it was atleast some crappy no-name maker Id understand, but its RangeX, their pretty well established and known, infact I was looking at one of their modules for my 9x just yesterday at £49...... £14 more and I could have the whole shabang and more besides......... theres got to be a hitch somewhere surely?

 It's Mr Git to you.... :rofl:
I get the same feeling , if it looks to good to be true it usually is.  It's also on pre order... :hmm:..
I would wait for others to do the field testing and if it comes up good it would make a good backup T/X.. although the nob jockey woofter, game controller, package the electronics come in would have to be  covered in a paper bag to use when other people were around.. :nananana:

I do like the design of this - looks like the TBS Tango.  I shall wait for reviews first though.  It might be a bit cheap and nasty, but Bruce did review the other multi-protocol transmitter from the same company and he thought it was not too bad.

I have a tango, it is ok but prefer both my x9d and qx7, I have big hands but the tango form factor is too big to be really comfortable

Andy hozza is spot on, you won’t regret the qx7
