I've just got back from shopping and picked up one of these for £28 (reduced from £69.99).

I wasn't looking for one, but at that price I couldn't resist!

Suggest you phone your local Aldi first as the one I bought was the last at their Castle Bromwich store.

Happy New Year smiley


Further to the above, after several months I haven't even opened the box!

So, if someone wants to collect it from near Coleshill (B46) and reimburse me £28, pm me.

I eventually bought a DJI 450 and flew it a few times but the novelty has worn off so it's in the BMFA classified ads if any forumite fancies trying a quad:-

Thread: Liquid weld

I was tempted after seeing the article, but £21 a bottle? Liquid Weld or Liquid Gold?

John - this stuff is reported to stick just about anything, not just plastics!

Buy it at the shows it's much cheaper.

I bought the 3 pack (£34) for either £10 or £15 can't remember, but certainly no more.

I bought some at Weston Park, good stuff.

Can you still change the Esc programming ok ?

Don't see why not, though I haven't had to because I programmed the esc before wiring in the UBEC.

20/12/2017 16:24:40

Yes, that's the method I use.

Here's a youtube example: **LINK**

Thread: Parallel Charging
05/12/2017 16:20:02

+ 1 for Zippy compacts.

I've got about a dozen of varying capacities bought over the last two years and haven't had any problems with them.

OTOH I've had two Overlanders puff up in the same period!

BTW I always parallel charge them.

Thread: Why We board Planes From The left Hand Side.
01/12/2017 19:21:55
Posted by Peter Jenkins on 01/12/2017 18:45:03:

My understanding of the Captain sitting on the LH side is that the rules of the air require you to "drive on the right" and as such the Captain sits where he gets the best view of any traffic to which he needs to give way. I have no idea why in helicopters the convention is different but it may be to do with the ease of evacuation with the direction of early rotor blades - but that's pure supposition. Helicopters still have to obey the rules of the air and give way to the aircraft on their left so how does the Captain cope when flying on his own?

Sorry Peter it's the opposite.........'On the right is in the right'.

When converging aircraft, of the same class, are closing the aircraft on the left must give way to the aircraft on it's right.

Btw, the explanation in the linked article that the convention for passenger acces on the left/port side is based on the pilot overviewing the wing nearest to the terminal building begs the question why the pilot is sitting in the LH seat in the first place..........

Or the RH seat in a chopper smiley
