|Thread: Servo Safety Clips|
I used to get them from the independent model shops before finding them on eBay for less. There's a store called modelaccessoriesuk2010 that does ten for £2.75 posted and in a range of colours. I've bought quite a few things from them.
There's also another option - heat shrink tubing. I was going to use some servo locks yesterday only to find that they wouldn't fit through the holes in the fuselage. So, I've ordered a metre of clear 10mm heat shrink tubing from eBay which will hold the connectors together without adding so much bulk.
|Thread: Aircraft Kits|
Two places worth visiting are Sussex Model Centre and Al's Hobbies. Both are reputable wih generally reasonable prices and good after sales support.
You didn't make it clear what you meant by 'all/most materials for the build' but they both sell kits (bits of wood to glue together) and ARTFs (which are mostly assembled).
|Thread: Ripmax Bullet|
While you're waiting, you could download the manual from here
|Thread: Pull-pull cable crimps|
I picked up these for less than £2 delivered. They're nickel plated copper.
Thanks for the suggestions.
500 feet ? That's on the edge of the atmosphere Tony
Last Summer, I was in the garden and could hear an unusual aeroplane in the distance. I had a look around and eventually saw their Lancaster. It then lined up for a fly past, going down straight down the street no more than two house high. Now that's low
|Thread: Pull-pull cable crimps|
Thanks guys. Plenty of options. I'll get something sorted out,
I didn't say that they didn't do it, only that I couldn't find it
I don't think that the search facility is too good though.
As it happens, I had a look at their web site but couldn't see any. Worth thinking about thanks.
Thanks guys. One's only just opened in the village. Only thing is, they close at 0800 tomorrow.
I had a look on eBay. It seems that aluminium ones are the norm. I guess that they would also do as long as they're the same size ?
Anyone know where I can get just a couple of these and without having to spend a small fortune on postage ?
I'm looking for oned that are 1cm long with a 3mm outside diameter and about 2mm inside diameter.
|Thread: Is LiFe passing me by?|
Which ones available over here come with twin leads ? I've not seen any myself.
I've seen one today rated at 3000mAh, discharge at 60A but with the connector described as only 3A. Without another lead, the discharge rating seems irrelevant.
Could you charge a pack fully and then discharge it down to 6.6 volts with a bulbor something ? Would that be a reliable way of knowing that you're not exceeding that voltage ?
I'm considering this at the moment. I just don't know if I can feel comfortable about my Hitec 5485HBs and 85MGs seeing 7.2 volts. I know that NiMHs also put out more than 6 volts but I've read that they settle down quickly once a load has been applied.
|Thread: Servo Reversing|
I think that you misunderstood my point. There's a warning on Spektrum RC which specifically says that reversing Y-leads should not be used.
Yes, that's also an option, if you don't have a Spektrum radio.
Sorry but that's not true. You need to swap the two motor wires and also swap the two outer connections to the pot.
|Thread: Semi scale ARTF kit, can't decide which one...|
You want to start off with a matt finish so how about this ?
|Thread: Digital servos - are they really worth paying extra for?|
Percy, don't forget that the Pulse XT 40 is a very fine model anyway.
