|Thread: Another "which radio?" Question|
David has anybody suggested a call or e mail to Mike Ridley to discuss your problem radio and see if he advises a repair or new radio ???
Many links on here to his workshop repairs or a google search
Do you think they will have to put the batteries into storage mode ??
|Thread: Covid 19|
Read an article the other day where the canals in Venice are running cleaner and dolphins see in Italian waters
Back in the early 70`s I had swopped an Electronic Calculator for a 2.46 ED engine and fancied something easy to control so made a home made Hovercraft. First trial test flight found it wanted to spin due to prop revs so added some vertical fins but this not improve things. It was getting out of control and went to grab it and as above but took the skin off my thumb end by 1/4 " . I then stamped on it to stop it and threw the project in the bin ( Not the Engine )
Never fancied one since even with improved engines radio control etc but maybe electric is the safer way to go

|Thread: JST XH terminal removal|
My view is if one wire has gone others maybe suspect. My option was to replace the whole plug from a used connector. Just make sure you cut old wires individually and work on one wire at a time and solder up and heat shrink. Job done

Flex the lid as Peter M says and ready for next batch. Ask around if friends have any used tubes or to save them for you . I must have 20 or so donated to me

|Thread: RCM&E Vol.63 No2 February 2020|
My Update Got the old mag with the free Taboo plan but the wing construction is lots and lots of work and not happy with all the curves needed. Just managed to trace the Twizzle plan and mag so see how this one pans out.
Anyone else tempted to build the Twizzle

|Thread: Traditional build that can use my 3S 2200 batteries|

Also went for a simple wire undercarriage and its a dream to take off and land

|Thread: Capacity checker accuracy?|
I was led to believe that the best way to check batteries capacity is to have a little bit of load on them using a suitable size resistor. I have recently purchased a Fusion product that puts a load across my IC reciever batteries and amazed that a green good to go light drops to an amber and be cautious
Maybe this could be set up for those lipo checkers units
|Thread: Hitec Optic 6 2.4|
I could only afford an Optic 6 and thought it was easy now on a Flash 8 and still admire Hitec systems
Hope you can get it sorted Robert C from Kansass
