Thread: what type of battery pack for i/c engine trainer
05/12/2019 06:24:36

Also, just bear in mind when using a battery checker through the charge port on a switch, that the readings aren’t always true.

Live found that the reading is lower through a switch than plugging the checker direct into the battery. I assume it’s the switch circuitry and resistance

+1 for a 4.8v Eneloop if using Futaba equipment, that's four cells,or 6v, five cells, if using a Spektrum radio. 1600-2000 maH should do fine.

Where did you get that switch from Cymaz?

Either from Wheelspin Models or Etronix . They’re about £15

New switch, something like this


And a new 4.8 or 6v eneloop depending on the servo. With any airframe , these two essential items that must perform faultlessly

Thread: Now That's Proper Customer Service......
01/12/2019 13:02:49

So back to the thread of excellent customer service....

Now not wishing to get lambasted for deviating from modelling, service is service. Mrs C and I moved into our current house with two babies under 2 1/2 in 1993. The house didn’t have a tv aerial as it was a new build. The day after we moved in the TV man appeared with ladders and a meter, only to tell us the tv signal was very poor and quite unwatchable. He suggested BSkyB, a satellite dish was installed and off he went. Two years ago our son gave us a flash Panasonic digital tv as our long suffering Sony began to have colour issues. Another TV man appears, ( the first one long since retired but still lived near us). New aerial installed and Freeview appeared on screen.

I phoned up Sky and cancelled the subscription. And by this time we have phone and broadband with Sky as well. Despite the best efforts of the sales team the Plus box was made redundant. I kept the phone and broadband with Sky as they have been very helpful with some long since sorted.

Anyway, 12 months ago I had an unlocked iPhone from eldest daughter. My other phone being a Nokia 7210, ( I’m tease mercilessly at work as it’s not trendy). Good deal from Sky £6/month, 2gb data, unlimited calls and texts.

I hope you’re still awake........

The 12 month contract finishes and the bill is now £16/ monthsurprise. I phone Sky. Not an issue as I’ve always, always got a clear and sensible resolution to any issue. After 30 minutes going through my account, Sky customer service gave me

  1. £4.50/ month on my phone for 12 months, reverting to £6/month for an unlimited time, except for across the board rises ( inflation). And because I paid an extra £10 for one month that’s been credited to my me an 18p bill in January.
  2. My phone/broadband contract reduced by month to £26/ month for 18 months.

They’ve saved me up to £270/year. Granted, they may not be the cheapest but when you phone up and speak to a call centre that can help and give you a positive outcome, that’s good enough for me.

‘‘Tis the season of Christmas Cakes. Mrs C has cooked ours at the beginning of November. Instead of feeding it she puts all the alcohol,J2o in with just the fruit and lets it soak about 3-4 days. Very nice.

Anyway, she is thinking of a ginger bread house scene this year. I have been tasked to make the “scaffolding “ for the of two
