Thread: Mikes Models - well done!

Plus 1 smiley

I used Mikes Models thirty years ago and last year started using them again after a long break from RC flying.

Different owners but still great service; I usually call in for something at least once a fortnight.

Thread: Taranis battery upgrade
09/09/2015 13:55:36

Using an iCharger 306B I put my HK 1500mah Life battery on a balance charge. All well until it sounded a warning beep and the screen read High Voltage cell. I took the battery off and checked the voltages: & 3.72

Does that indicate a u/s battery or might a re-cycle charge fix it? The battery is three months old.

Flew today, much better but not yet spot on. Another 25g added this evening putting the CofG at 95mm.

Will try again asap subject to wx smiley

Wish I'd found that rcgroups link before I maidened it laugh

I've bought a balance checker from HK and using that I had set it at 120mm as per the manual.

I've added more lead in the nose (total of 135g) and it now balances at 100mm. AUW 1880g.

I hope to fly it tomorrow and will post the result.

Thanks chaps.

Hi Rich,

265mm or 345mm including the aileron.

I bought this ARTF **LINK** at the Weston Park show and maidened it today. Very short flight ended in maize which saved it!

C of G in the manual says 120mm from root le so that's where I set it, but it was all over the place and very obviously tail heavy.

So I used **LINK** which comes up with ~ 80mm from le.

To get this C of G I'd have to add .........over 300g of nose weight!

Anyone else got this model and solved it without so much dead weight?

NTM Prop Drive (146g)
Turnigy Plush 60A ESC (75g)
Zippy 3S 2700 Lipo (199g)

Just had occasion to return an X8R due to a faulty Smart Port. Rich replaced the Rx with a new one by return of post.

Thread: Lost Model Alarm for Taranis
24/07/2015 20:48:13

Thanks Chaps, I'll use RSSI and an alarm buzzer. Belt and braces as it took four of us over two hours to find my lost PC9 in a barley field a fortnight ago!

Now repaired and ready to fly again, subject to our WX indecision

Thread: Lost Model Alarm for Taranis
22/07/2015 19:22:37

I'm looking for a lost model alarm for use with X8R receivers. I bought one from HK but apparently they don't work with Failsafe.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thread: Taranis battery upgrade
01/07/2015 15:34:29

I've bought this battery for my Taranis Plus but the power connector is the wrong one.

Is it simply a matter of moving the positive wire in the black plug and using that, or do I need an adaptor?

TIA Shep

Thread: setting up
03/06/2015 18:03:17

HI Bernard,

I used this to set up my Irvine 53 ABC (2 stroke) and it now works well.

I presume the instructions also apply to 4 strokes but I'm not sure.


Hope it helps.
