Thread: Lipo Battery Storage
18/09/2018 21:07:13

5000 6s 30c constant 60c burst in stock at hobbyking UK and qualifies for free p+p only £49.85 and that's not logged in so possibly a couple of quid cheaper . So not that expensive only a couple of gallons of glow fuel.

How does the CellPro charge through balance leads that are not plugged in ?

Should have said no need to plug the main lead in

09/09/2018 18:46:07

Cellpro 10S and 10X are capable of charging through the balance leads only (no need to plug the balance lead in) they see the cells as individuals not 1 battery and charge them at full power till they are fully charged giving perfectly balanced charges every time. So it's not strictly true that balance chargers don't work.

Tried to warn about these cowboys some time ago but the thread I started was removed as I didn't have 25 posts. Not logged in for a long time but came across this thread, they are still out there trading and someone just about every day mentions them on various Facebook pages and none of it is good. By the way they don't just do airfix they have a website full of rc planes cars and multi rotors

Thread: Fuel proofing - what to use?
03/01/2018 19:31:58

Two pack automotive lacquer, completely fuel proof, cheap about £20 for a litre of lacquer and half a litre of hardner, just hold your breath if you spray it then run out of the room.

Well I opened my new aurora 9 yesterday I have set up my Zĺin Z50 on it and am ready to go flying once the weather improves. Very impressed so far with aurora 9 system and it's ease of use. GaryG

Good choice, won't get head ache with it, and I bet you never have to ask how to use it.
