Thread: Too Windy To Fly
10/05/2013 17:46:38

Hi Greg.

This may sound harsh, but if you are not prepared to learn to fly in wind in this country, you have chosen the wrong hobby.

 

You ask how anyone gets started in this hobby. Easy, you join a club and buddy with a flyer who can fly in wind. Its not as difficult as you think. The flying is easy, the landing is another story.

Hi Dan

The trick with landing with a cross wind is to use RUDDER as the primery control. Most peeps dont and make a hash of the landing Also as far as I know cloud will not affect TX range at all

It would however help if you described what controls you were using for the landing

Garry

Using the rudder as primary control during landing is a recipe for disaster. In fact unless you can use it fully co-ordinated with aileron it's best not used at all during landing until the wheels are in contact with the ground.

You fly your way, and I will fly my way. One crash in 6 yrs flying, will keep me flying my way, and that was due to a faulty lipo

I understand that this was posted quite a long time ago, but Phil Wood from Modelchat informs me that the cheapo servos from HK use the same arms. Hope this helps

Thread: whats the best dual / quad charger
09/02/2013 14:25:32

I have 2 quattro chargers, which have given me perfect service for 2 years. I use mainly 4S 5000mah, so with this set up I can charge 8 lipos at the same time. Saves me an awful lot of time. Google quattro charger.

Thread: Another local shop bites the dust.
26/12/2012 09:34:37

This unfortunatly is the way buisnesses are going.. In the food market, your local supermarket will eventually close down all the small shopkeepers round him, and in the same way this is what is happening to the LMS. They just cant/wont compete with the big on line model suppliers. We ultimatly are to blame.

Like Tim and Nev, my lipos are always fully charged. I have always done this and some of my 4S ones are 6 yrs old and still working 100%. Do I fly a lot, yes I do, twice a week 52 weeks out of the year.
