  1. Finish the Zero before you lose a vital part of the kit or something falls onto the part you have built already
  2. I have a wattmeter but for a simple on the field check I just attach my voltmeter to the battery balance lead and open the throttle, you can see how much and how quickly the voltage drops and also check for cell balance.
  3. To be fair, it doesn't matter whether you graduated last year or like me, over 40 years ago, a degree provides the core of knowledge that you then build on with work experience. Very often the book tells you how to do it right and people take short cuts because it's easier/cheaper, just wander round a new build house with a copy of the building regulations and you'll see what I mean. The real problem is the prevalence of useless degree courses designed to fund the university without any prospect of the student getting a decently paid job that uses the knowledge they gained doing the degree.
  4. Indeed so, I missed that, ignore previous comments but it's still worth monitoring the voltage drop at full throttle to check to stste of the batteries.
  5. If it started off ok I would guess that the batteries, if used singly, have been heavily worked, the model has a 130A esc and minimum recommended battery is a 6s 4Ah 30c which would indicate that it's likely that the motor makes good use of the ESC capacity. E-Flite suggest that lower capacity batteries are used in parallel which would be my first suggestion.
  6. Just a thought, have you tried charging at a low current setting, around 0.5 Amps?
  7. I have actually charged the type of battery you have had problems with without any issues.
  8. £2.40 for B&W A0 here plus postage A0 prints
  9. I just searched for "how to fit fpv to rc plane" and there are a number of videos available. Don't forget you need a spotter too.
  10. At least you can remember hat you have forgotten it.
  11. On the way to Buxton on the A6 there's a section of road works with the sign "cats' eyes removed" a bit further down the road there's a very good home made sign saying "mice very happy".
