Getting quite fed up with:
a) the wind for stopping me flying
b) the stupidly inaccurate wind forecast for getting my hopes up! 
 
Been the second Saturday that has been forecast for 20oc+ temps and > 3mph wind!!!

Getting fed up, as it is I have to spend all this time doing work!

Oh don't get me started on H&S legislation, Bad enough it's enforced, but you can't easily just get a simple list of them all, increasing my workload tenfold!!!!
 
I could make a better video than that!!!! jk :P
 
Was the flight in the plane free just to get a good story for the video? I don't know why but I love looking at other people's models, a gateway into different participants in the hobby :D
 
I like the look of all those scratch builds! And I like the idea of 'you build 'em I fly 'em' ! Because I have not yet got my adult patience!

Thread: Ripmax 2500 and Tornado 3700mAh Nimh GETS VERY HOT!!!
27/06/2010 17:44:17
 
That is the spec of it, it says 3.5Ah.
 
It looks like there is an up market version under the name pro-peak varipulse 2500 with variable current.
 
This charger was bought no more than a year ago and I think it is quite modern.
 
These batteries would be charged on our other ripmax charger at no more than 2 amps and they would never ever get hot. Maybe it would be a good charger to use at a race, but when at home, charge them at a low current to prolong their life. 
27/06/2010 14:45:52
The point is, this is virtually brand new, and it is wasted money :s we do have other chargers, I was just wondering why it got so hot.
 
We could probably sell it then, If it is normal operation, to someone who does racing.
27/06/2010 13:07:30
It takes about an hour to charge, it says 3.5Ah and 130mAh on the charger, don't know why though. Don't know when it gets hot, It could be the hot weather I suppose

Ah so that was a Jodel DR1051 I was getting worried I hadn't noticed it had an all moving tail plane on the scale 1050 I was designing XD That's one awesome video! now we just need to distribute it and get more people onto the hobby!
Thread: Ripmax 2500 and Tornado 3700mAh Nimh GETS VERY HOT!!!
27/06/2010 12:04:20
This is my point, it is a fixed charge rate of fast (3.5mah) or trickle (130mah), we have never charged a battery at this much amps, never more than 2 amps, I am wondering if it is designed to be used with large cooling fans for RC car races where you need to charge a battery as quick as possible, but not really needed becausehe isn't going to be using it that much :s 
 
There is a cooling fan shaped hole on the bottom but no cooling fan, it is rather strange

In the instructions, it claims to have a thermal cut off, not sure what kind of cutoff that is? It was too hot to hold
