|Thread: Addiction-X arrived this morning|
|I have been considering one of these as my next purchase so very interested in how it goes together and how it flies!|
|Thread: Charge 7.2v Stick Battery with 13.8v DC Regulater|
|Only you can make that decision Naz. It depends on how rich you are and whether you will ever use all the other functions on the charger I link to above and the capabilities of the charger you are looking at on ebay. All I will say is that I recommended that charger to a friend of mine and he was very pleased with it.|
|I assume it is something like this.|
Welcome to the friendly forum.
You could use one of these but I guess that's not what you are looking for.

Posting below from Steve Hargreaves which I deleted by acident. Sorry
Well.....fuel is a controversial subject...ask 10 modellers & you'll probably get 11 different answers. Model Technics are a long established & well respected company supplying model fuel to the aeromodelling public so I'm sure they know what they are doing......
I personally wouldn't use either fuel, particularly if the motors are new. Both fuels would invalidate the warranty as they don't contain enough oil.....!! Dynaglow is 2% castor & 8% synthetic.... & Duraglo is 6% castor & 9% synthetic. Duraglo would probably be OK in your four stoke but a bit low on oil for a two stoke motor..... Just Engines offer some good advise on fuel here.
Personally I use the Southern Modelcraft Mo glow fuel in both 2 & 4 stroke motors.....2% castor & 15% synthetic....cheap as chips (£12 s gallon) too!! Only problem is you can only get it at the shows (so stock up when you go!!!)

|I have missing content on the TSR2 thread. All I can see is add a post box.|
|Thread: Nimh Mythbusters test|
|I think these test will be very useful. People recharge their batteries before each use because that is what they have always done not because it is necessarily the best way to do it. More information on the subject will be most useful.I have to say that the Instant Cells in my Dx6i have on ly ever been charged 3 times in the year I have had it and even then they did not take a any where near a full charge each time.|

|No that's a prop adapter.|
|Thread: Servos to avoid|

|Thread: Balsa buying.|
I buy from Balsa Cabin (not too far from me) also I buy at shows usually from Slec. Not sure what you mean Dan that Google didn't find then do you mean their web site or their location?

|Thread: soldering stuff together...|
What about this for under £7.50?
Well it's not like welding because it is soldering just that the heat is provided by the torch rather than an iron. With welding you melt part of the components to the joined with soldering you don't.
You can use an iron for soldering U/C but it would need to be a big powerful iron or even a gas iron. The main trick with torch soldering is not to get it too hot.
You can also do silver soldering with a gas torch this is stronger than soft soldering and can be used on components that get hot (exhausts). to do silver soldering you need to get the components red hot.
|You can use normal solder but an electronics soldering iron will not be powerful enough. I usually use a gas torch to solder my wire undercarriages and thick plumber solder. You can buy a torch from the local DIY shop for a reasonable price. Try something like this. You can probably find cheaper ones if you try. Don't forget to get some flux I use Laco.|
