|Thread: Security of Information|
misquoting is not paraphrasing

|Thread: Where to get Good RX switches from?|
I have been toying with the idea of buying some quality switches such as switchcraft but then you need to solder then up yourself. but it might be a good way to go to get something of a high standard
|Thread: can you reccomend me a decent soldering iron|
this one looked promising?
are the tips included or sold separately
electronics but some battery cables can start to get quite big so I need it to be a good allrounder
I find myself doing more and more soldering.
I have a poor soldering iron the tip is wobblily the handle gets hot and the power cable is far to short.
I would like something better.
I used to use at work a wella soldering station that was very good but at nearly £300 it is too expensive for home use.
Do you own a good onr that you can recommend?
|Thread: charge lead cable|
I want to order some cable to make up some charge leads. What size cable would be suitable.
something like this would be good but I need to know what AWG to order
|Thread: recharable battery charger|
I guess it is an approved charger as it is the same make as the batteries but I suspect it is also the cheapest the company could find. it would be a lot more convienant to find one with auto shut off
I was given AA AAA and p3 rechargeable batteries for work but the charger that came with them is very rudimentary. it has a red light to tell you a battery is connected but there is no indication of a charged battery you are supposed to wait until the battery is completely discharged and time the charge and manually disconnect.
Are there any better options available?
|Thread: Field Box|
Cuban8's tool box reminded me of the design in the video below that I always thought could be adapted to make a very nice field box

|Thread: Eflite 60-120 retract|
horizon hobby products seem to becoming increasingly rare in the UK
|Thread: ARTF out of stock|
oh that looks promising
hanger 9 and great planes used to be my favourites along with the chris foss series.
I just checked out inwoods and they do seem to have seagull models in stock
Im looking for a new 60 to 120 sport model artf. but anything I have found that I like seems to be Out of stock.
have I missed something?
|Thread: How many charges will I get from a 12 volt Lesiure Battery ?|
I built my own 12v pack from 18650 cells I bought used from ebay that I use for camping. As they were used they did not have full capacity but I discarded any with less than 1Ah capacity mine has 48 cells arranged as 3s so has a 16Ah capacity. Lot of youtube videos showing people build larger packs to power cars or even homes link . it was more of a fun project as it can be time consuming to test the cells and assemble but if you have the patents it may provide an alternative route

well there is no one size fits all solution as peters example demonstrates
