Hi Bill looks like everybody busy this morning to answer your question.

The most popular answer will be plaster board, I actually have some 2inch thick rigid foam ( blue stuff) and okay with that

Its not a problem just keep a eye on it the cover may have good adhesive and stay in place

You could stick a good self adhesive trim over the joint

If the red is overlapping that blue in front of wing then it's susceptible to lift

08/09/2020 09:13:37

A thought for the future. You will have a raw edge of material that cold get lifted with wind over fuselage I always go for overlap opposite to your position current situation

Hi Barry. You are going to get an avalanche of questions on your set up

Motor rating watts etc etc. Can you be a bit more specific on your set up

Usual flight times vary from 5mins upwards dependant on your flight pattern fast slow

I have read the 4 Max pdf sheet but thats over 2 weeks work before disposal

Thread: ESC cutting out on one type of battery?
31/08/2020 12:28:56

My charger is SKYRC e660 and read all the pages just out of interest I have another charger that can measure internal resistances ( GT Power bt Robotbirds ) it shows the same figures as the Sky unit. ?..?

I thank you all again for your responses and i will just carry on flying , charging , discharge as I have done many times and occasionally check internal resistances if a battery comes in a little warmer than usual

31/08/2020 11:43:52

Many Thanks for the responses and links I can only assume my charger is possibly missing the decimal point in the readings. If I add in the decimal point to all my readings then I am in the ball park expexted readings of others

30/08/2020 14:59:32

A little confused here with the stated milliohms expected on lipo batteries. Just spent last few days setting up a Wot4e (blue and white) model with a battery may be 4 years old that has given reliably service. Coming to final motor check on Wattmeter I could only get 250 watts and dropping quick ( motor rated well above 400 t ) so up the prop an inch and try again. This time even less 200 watt whats going on thinking ESC etc so have a coffee and start again.

So charged up a newish battery from last years spend and away we go , watt meter on and whow just short 500 watts so drop the prop and inch and 400 watts just what was needed for this model.

So reading this thread in depth I picked up on internal resistance etc something I have not gone into so far set the charger up and found the following results 25--65--27 milliohms on duff battery all other batteries same reading all cell varying between 16 to 20 milliohms

So my question am I reading a wrong scale when someone early said this reading should be a lot lower and do I take readings on fully charged cells or storage mode

Many thanks in advance for any responses

How about a long 2mm carbon rod with adaptors super glued on ends for clevises. Or a long 2 mm rod and solder the adaptors on
