|Thread: Binding to orange Rx|
I’m not proposing that you use a nimh pack in your glider - just use it to prove / disprove the the functionality of the BEC.
A servo has a voltage critical circuit within it - it’s not comparable to a simple dc brushed motor in a slot car
Yes the BEC usually is a regulated 5v
Incidentally most receivers are happy on high voltages 6v + but it’s the SERVOS that in many cases will not be happy - unless specified otherwise your common or garden servo is only rated at 6v and fully charged LiPo is 7v+
Well before you try a new esc can I just suggest that you try to bind using a simple battery rather than the BEC on the ESC. If that does prove to work correctly, then it would suggest, or confirm that the voltage output from the ESC BEC is duff. Try this link to a “tutorial” that I did years ago 😉

Nice work so far Martin 👍🏻
PS: Anyone thinking of this one, I assure you she flew a treat when I had five minutes on the sticks at the Lleyn.

Yes Tony - I have used the same make fan ( also got mine from bangood ) but 70mm in my Windrider Bede.
Cracking unit for very little money, pretty sure Jeremy has this one in the Mig.
Couldn’t see an embed / resize option on the U Tube “Share” button ? Perhaps the forum system has improved since I last used it - or is it the IPhone limitation etc? Seems to work ok for me, but apologies if I’ve screwed the thread up 🤷🏼♂️

|Thread: Dave Burton (BEB)|
Only recently returned to UK after lengthy time at sea with little of no internet. Steve Hargreaves kindly informed me of this sad news, and my condolences go out to all Dave’s family. 😢

Nice progress Dave
You’re progressing well there Dave - she’s looking nice at that size too 👍🏻
|Thread: PSSA Gliding Events 2019|
Yes sadly the weather could not have been much worse, for Saturday especially. A last minute slight increase of wind speed saw five of us have a nice few hours on the Easterly slope late evening Sunday. Thanks for the company and usual laughs to - from L to R...... Chris Barlow, Bob Jennings, Myself, Mark Kettle, and Steve Kemp on the camera phone 👍🏻

Beautiful as always Sir
|Thread: Bwlchfest 2017 - A Fly for Fun slope soaring event in S Wales|
If North Wales is anything to go by, and I know it isnt......... Its flippin torrential rain and wind here - definately flippers, goggles, and lead boots weather
Wishing you all a great weekend andc good lift ! I had thought this may be the time IO actually get back to the Valleys and fly the Bwlch at last...... however its not to be.
Work calls on the Saturday and a friend has offered me a free trip to Cosford full size airshow on the Sunday.
Have a great time chaps and chapesses and Ill see you at the next one

Nicely put Geoff - but the ZX Spectrum still got me interested in home computing
