Thread: paypal

John, as long as the description matches the item as you described in your listing you have no worries. If the chap as paid via paypal the only way he can request a dispute is, if the item does not match your selling description of if the item is damaged on delivery, which get should recorded on delivery. When you send the item your courier will provide you with a consignment number, send your buyer this, from this point on its in their hands.

Follow the Ebay rules and you will have no worries. Good luck

I bought the model from Peter. It wasn't really that dramatic just a twitchy rudder just goes to show the range on the old 35 meg radios.

The model landed with no damage, only a snotty nose, mainly because Peter builds his models so light. We had another flight which was great, flies beautiful.

Nice to buy direct too !!!!

You are far too sharp Stevo, I meant gone straight down!

23/02/2014 15:18:50

Probably been said before, but

Loosing orientation, haven't flown for a while so a bit rusty, let the model get too far away and there it was, gone!

Still it will fly again and it was good to get out to the field again.

If it was that easy everyone would do it!

Thread: Building a Battery Pack

Seems that it's the only item in the list that can't be ordered. sad

BTW Steve who are SM Services?

15/02/2014 20:57:08

Cheers Steve, that's a large capacity cell, who supplies them? The min req on the spec sheet is 1.2v and you have found this to be ok? cheers Steve

Shaunie, that is nice and neat, very tidy. The system that I have chosen from South Herts Models (which has a fairly good report from guys on here) does not suggest anywhere near the battery pack you suggest, please don't assume I am questioning your advice I'm just a bit confused. crook the spec sheet is here cheers Steve

15/02/2014 15:32:31

Steve, I did get the charging lead, but I'm not sure if the charger I have has that connection. The lead supplied by SHM is the same as the lead you would use to charge a Tx?

15/02/2014 13:43:17

Anyone here?

14/02/2014 14:49:17

Stevo, agreed. But the SHM kit requires an output voltage of 1.2v~4.2v the capacity of the output device is not at question here. Running this system with output voltage of 1.2v (standard AA cell) is on the edge to say the least.

14/02/2014 13:24:43

Andy, that's the reason for me using the Onboard glow, can't fit the glow stick because of the cowl. Have you checked the output voltage on these batteries, I just had a quick look on the Maplins site and the ones I found only have an output of 1.2 v, which is standard for a AA cell, this would NOT be enough voltage to drive the AGS, even doubled up. Just a thought

Which I think where Toni is coming from?

That's kind of what I was thinking Jack, just need to make sure I do it safely. wink 2

Like my Grandad used to say measure twice cut once!

14/02/2014 10:50:45

I have decided to fit the SHM Advanced Glow System which obviously needs a power source. The battery from SHM was a bit dear so I thought I could make my own, seemed simple at the time?

Anyway, I need between 1.2v ~ 4.2v at around 1500 mAh for my requirements, so my question is can I solder two of these link together to give me 3.7v at 1600mAh?

Or is there an easier way, I need to beware of the weight implications, your help is much appreciated, Steve.

David, this just might be a typo issue, try a search in for Lithium Lion, it will suggest the results you are looking for. All the best, Steve

Gilberto, great words from Pete, it's true, if our hobby was that easy nobody would do it!!

It's how we all learn, trial and error, good and bad decisions etc... When you fix your glitch, which you will, and the Funcub is flying and you have the feeling of the control of your model, then ask yourself the question " do you wish you hadn't brought it"

All the best, Steve
