Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Good for you!  ~~

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Heads up on a useful piece of kit! (for soldering)

Got one of these from my local petrol station, ideal for soldering battery connectors £3.99 each works in any orientation and plenty enough heat for the job.
Nice thing about it is the blue flame, very directional and pretty hot! solders battery connectors in seconds.
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!


Nice one, Which pterol station was that if you dont mind me asking?

DJI Phantom 3 Pro
TBS Discovery - APM
450 Flame wheel
Trex 600 E
Protos 500
Trex 450 x2
plus various nitro and coax heli's just gathering dust


I have never soldered using a naked flame, always a hot iron.  For the life of me, this doesn';t seem a safe reliable way of making a solder joint. It goes against everything I';ve ever learned (brazing aside).  :o

That said - you learn something new every day it seems is true  ::) - I';ve just read and watched a guide here http://mods-n-hacks.wonderhowto.com/how-to/solder-with-lighter-312843/

I';ll keep that particular "hack" in the back of my mind in case I';m stuck on that desert island (why would I have a lighter? I don';t smoke!) just in case  ~~  :laugh:
"Its better than bad, its good"

Current FCs: Pixhawk, APM 2.6, Naza M V2, Naze32, Flip32+ CC3D, KK2.1.5
Aircraft: miniMax Hex, DJI 550 (clone) TBS Disco, 450 Firefly, 250 Pro, ZMR250, Hubsan X4, Bixler 2


Light brazing yes...soldering..mmmmm..not for  batteries anyway.
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.


It';s from the Morco stations, and yes I agree that for most soldering you would never use this sort of thing but I like it because it';s so much faster to make the joint so less heat and solder spread - works for me, previously used my gas iron as a blowtorch to do it but don';t have to strip it down now!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!
