Thread: Help! Can't charge my Lipo
13/07/2020 11:16:17
Posted by David Ramsden on 12/07/2020 23:55:26:

Well I guess this thread is drawing to a close now. It's been an education. I've learned a lot about lipos, charger use, and performance monitoring gadgets. And as a small bonus, I got my esc to apply its brake without any trouble at all. Once I had her (my new Kloudrider) trimmed to glide at minimum sink rate I even discovered that it's possible to slope soar without a slope(!). But that's another story...

Thank you everyone!

Hi Geoff,

There was not a link actually, at least not when I ordered it!

I sent an email inquiry and a few days later the kit was ready, just have to pick it up tomorrow from the courier!

Tina from Slec very kindly emailed me a few days after I had ordered to let me know the kit was cut and ready to send to me!

Ordered and on the way already! Fantastic service from Slec!

Cannot wait to start!!

Hi James,

Afraid I cheated and bought the kit from RBC, I guess you are building from scratch?

Wow cannot wait for this kit to come out.

Really like the look of the Cub, especially the lattice fuse, just looks great.

My Red Eagle is still surviving after some repairs there this week! Made up a new firewall from birch ply and epoxied the formers back in place after a crash when radio contact was lost.

Back in the air once again and it flies like new again!

I've racked up a lot of enjoyable flying hours on it and it always flies great! So made up some very basic decals/trim for it to celebrate it flying again!

Amazing work Martin, well done, some skills getting it to this stage already!

Great to see it coming together and nearing completion, class stuff.

Watching with interest.......and not a small amount of skills envy!

Hi Dennis,

Thank you very much for that, I'll drop Robbie a mail so.

Delighted with the kit and build, pity my last landing was so rubbish, but all good, just an undercarriage leg!

You were right Geoff, ordered from Hobbyking 4 pairs....should keep me going for a while!
