Re: Batteries needed for Thunda

Sounds like you are well within the required limits. Just remember to not put them in checked baggage.

Re: Batteries needed for Thunda

Welcome Jonathan, My experience shipping LiPos when traveling is to take them as carry-on. They are not allowed as checked baggage. Personally if I were traveling with some of those LiPos (not particularly large) I would put them in one of those protective bags you can get for use when charging. Tha...

Upscale to M motors and if it survives the centripetal forces it would go orbital!!!

Re: Flour Rockets

If one of these has a bad landing does it end up as flat as a pancake? :D

Another flight for the VTS

Flew this again last weekend on an L935, getting the speed up a little from last time. Gains were turned down a little from last flight, and the failed power supply was of course fixed. Flight was essentially nominal, and I have had a quick look at the downloaded data and it seems to have stabilised...

Re: Strange Goings On

So, after crashing with "bandwidth exceeded" and other strange messages over the past few days, the forum seems to be back to something more believable. 25 online currently.

It is still interesting to see some "guests" replying to threads.

Re: Joe Turner's 38mm Scratch-Build

Nice work Joe! Love the double-sided thing you have happening with the modules and veroboard. I see you have held the radio modem in place with hotmelt. It could suffer from a shear failure under vibration. I would suggest just a wrap of electrical tape or a cable tie to pin it down for some insuran...

Re: Strange Goings On

I had noticed something similar, now that you mention it. My last thread in "electronics" is up to about 5k views in a very short period of time. I have also checked and currently there are 75 guests on line. That number sounds anomalous.
