Get a Frsky then you can get / make a Spektrum module to put in the back, that's what I have done and then you can fly all of your models from one TX

Apparently CML distribution are a UK importer for EXHobby so you might be able to ask them about spare parts??

I agree with Pete, every magazine subscription I have ever had starts with the next months issue after you subscribe, they don't post out a single copy of the current month to the new subscriber, they add you on the distribution list for the next issue and bulk postage drop. This website says the next issue is out on 14/4/17 so I would expect you to receive that one as the first issue on a new subscription.

My build has been stopped for a while Chris, I am in the middle (well closer to the end) of selling and moving house, it's a big move with 3 children and lots of 'stuff' to move to the other end of the country.

After moving I will have my very own garage or 'La Grotte' , it needs a bit of work ( a new roof and doors) so once that is done and I have insulated it etc I can have my own workshop for building things

Happy birthday for Today cakecakegift

Hi Chris, for testing servos one at a time ( as normally done with a servo tester) yes a small 5V 1.5A DC supply will work fine, just get the polarity correct. Alternatively use a low cost 4.8V to 6V receiver pack or 4x AA battery holder with servo plug attached.

I personally use an old 4x AA NiMh rechargeable pack (4.8V) for doing servo testing and powering up receivers etc,

Thread: Spektrum module for Taranis
03/02/2017 17:17:02

Ah, you went for the extra LED, very nice I didn't bother on mine.

Just a note to say the remaining kit of parts for the circuit has sold.

29/01/2017 22:47:11

I have one remaining full set of parts to make up a Spektrum module, you will need the RF board from a DX5e and a suitable case such as the DM9 available from here **LINK**

I can post the kit inside the UK for £15 , I can't go lower than that because of the cost of the PCB from the USA, the postage was expensive.

The kit includes PCB and components to solder on as shown in this picture:

After you have soldered it together, the only tricky bit is the 12 pin socket for the RF board where the pins are quite close together, but it's not too hard.

Shown here with the RF module plugged in to the socket.

Thread: Diesel Crackdown
29/01/2017 20:11:14

Disabled Parking Bays on private property have NO standing in law, so it depends where they say you were parked, if they cannot provide evidence of the alleged parking then I would ignore them, unless this is a ticket issued by the council it is a 'parking charge' and not a fine. I am not a legal expert but know lots of people that have ignored the tickets and nothing has happened after they received 3 nasty threatening letters.

I am sure the hydrogen fuel cell will never happen.

I have an older (08 Reg) Diesel VW Sharan automatic at the moment, no DPF.

When I eventually get rid of it I will be going to petrol or possibly electric if Tesla keep making improvements.

No not made any progress recently, I am flat out with work, 3 kids and trying to sell my house at the moment. I did join the wings together and build the wing tips, I have to do the sheeting next.
