Thread: 10 amp lipo charge !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
05/12/2018 15:40:18

I charge all my lipo at 2 amps max and I have had no problems with my Lipo ,also I do not let them go below about 30% .All my lipo are fine .It seems I am the only person in our club that do this .I am contently by told by every one else in my club to charge them at 10amps surpriseyes 10 amps .that way you can take just one battery down the field and field charge it at 10 amps and fly all day on 1 battery . I really think this a strange thing to do but am I old fashioned or have I miss something !!! Surly this is not a good practise .Am I right in charging my lipo at a max of 2 amps ????

Yes I admit it. It was only once with Royal Mail and 1 bad delivery out of hundred of good delivery I was a bit harsh on Royal Mail ,I do not have a lot of luck with mail order .Oh I how wish I had a local model shop near and yes I do have a regular postcode and a gigantic house sign that I am sure you can see from space but obviously not from the road !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I have a second day to sit in all day because FedEx will not give me a time just it will be between 08.00 and 18.00 tomorrow if the driver can read my house sign.I have given them my phone number to ring but that was to complicated for the driver to ring me .Me things the driver had to much work load force on him.Plus I love a good moan

The BMFA can't win ,if the stop producing the mag people would moan about not having a mag .I think for £38 a year we get a good deal .Try joining a golf club .that £38 might just buy one round of drinks

Thread: which is cheaper,IC or ELECTRIC?
27/11/2018 19:51:50

I have always preferred IC but I have just order 4 gallons of glow fuel @ £26 a gallon .Last time I order the same fuel it was £ 19 a gallon ( why has it gone up so much ) so I am thinking maybe Electric might be the cheaper option .But like Jon I find electric a bit boring . The price of glow fuel has nether bother me ,it just something you have to put up with  but now it has got me thinking .I have 2 option .Option 1 just pay the price and shut up .Option 2 Convert to petrol .I suppose I could go over to the dark side but it will always be ic for me what ever the cost ,to a point !!!!!!!!!!

I decided to try the graphene lipo battery .I have been using it now for about 6 months .I have found no difference in flight times ,no difference in performance ,in fact I have found no difference between graphene and a normal lipo .I tell a lie there is one big difference the graphene battery was a lot difference in price ,it cost a lot more then the normal lipo !!!!!! .I think it is a con .I have stop buying them I will stick with the lower priced normal Lipo !!!!!!!!!!!!!.Can someone tell why you pay a lot more for a graphene lipo when the the normal lipo are just has good ( the graphene battery and the normal lipo I compare it with where both the same make of lipo )

Thread: Servo for AcroWot XL
24/11/2018 19:12:27

I have a Acro Wot Xl and intend to put a DLE 30 cc petrol engine in it .I was hoping to put Futaba 3010 servos in it but they seem hard to come by at the moment (on back order at Ripmax till after Christmas ) I have been told that the Savox sc 352 servo should be OK but the person was not sure if they would be OK in a big model like an Acro Wot XL .They are a bit cheaper then the Futaba 3010 but anyone know if they would OK to put in an Acro Wot XL and do the job ?
