  • Bad Raven: Balance lead extensions are pence from China, I bought bulk. I also cut the old balance plugs with lead off and if I get a broken plug body I just solder a new one lead to lead, can extend at the same time.
    Today at 14:17:22
  • Reman: Bajadre, With reference to balance leads, I bought a cheap JST XH crimper, plus a shed load of male/female plugs and pins a while back. It's amazing how many times that lots come in handy. Not just for repairing battery packs, But for things like adding quick release plugs to wiring harnesses so you can do things like pop gimbels on and off camera drones quickly, Or add plugs to the cables of hardwired components so you don't have to desolder them when you need to get them out of the way in a rebuild, And making charging extension leads so you can get the battery right into a Li-Po safe bag and away from the expensive charger. They're well worth adding to the toolbox..... The other day I only spent about 5 minutes hunting for my 4S charging lead before giving up and making a new one. If I didn't have the crimping kit I'd probabbly still be looking. :)

  • hoverfly: Not unusual Reman, they just cant be ar$ed to deliversome if they get behind schedule.. Yesterday i had a delivery by Herpies,  got a sms telling me when they were going to deliver, then rang the door bell and knocked. The parcel was intact and damage free.  Not sure what is going on.... :hmm:

  • Bajadre: Quick question guys is it ok to snip off a broken balance lead and not run it i know i wouldnt be able to balance charge it again but would the pack be ok ? its a 3s 5500mah which the lead got dragged along the floor on sundays bahs :(

  • Reman: About an hour ago I had the Yodel tracking system tell me that I wasn't in...... That's f*ckin' news to me !!!!!
    Today at 10:17:20
  • Reman: Like I said, In the past I've had a handful of packs "Go off" at me like fireworks after bad crashes (Usually with RC helis), So it's hard to get that image out of your head while stripping down Li-Po's. :)

  • shawdreamer: the horror stories will always incite worry when messing about with Lipo's but its the same as everything else when working on electronics alike, alsong as your careful and methodical there's very little to panic about, I regularly recycle 4s's with a single dead cell into usable 3s packs, end of the days its alot more economical, safer and enviro friendly than having to bin them....just a pain that the dead cell is NEVER one of the outer cells so you always end up having to strip a good cell off to get at the bad cell before putting it back afterwards, its like dropping toast, it'll always land buttered side down and inevitably covered in pet fur :angry:
    January 21, 2019, 00:11:16
  • Reman: Just did the one electrical job that still scares me. I dismantled some Lipo's with knacked cells and built usable packs out of the good cells. I've had packs go "VOOOOOOSH" at me in the past so I'm always slightly scared of having bare lipo contacts anywhere near what I'm working on, But all appears to have gone well and one of them is currently doing a charge/discharge cycle to make sure nothings a miss. :)

  • Reman: My original Dremel Pro made it to 14 years of heavy weekend use (And abuse) before it crocked. Dismantled that but it turned out to be a "Control module" fault, And Dremel made it ni on impossible to get into that without pooching it completely. :(

Sonic AR900
« on: December 08, 2018, 03:43:03 »
A few weeks back i ordered the Matek f405 wing board, then found i did not have a clue about Inav, i was going to sell the board on but a friend has offered to set it all up for me (big thumbs up Jon) so its going in an AR900, this will have 2207 2400kv with 40amp esc,  osd and fpv on my tablet, this should be a lot of fun, will put some pics when it is all sorted, knowing Jon it wont be long before maiden

When it gets sorted can you post some set up details,  my 411 (smaller board)  almost works but the serveo  response is very slow . There is a lot of conflicting info on the net.

I will see what i can do, but i wont be doing any of the set up, might be able to screen shot some settings, this should be all done in a week or so

Hoverfly, take prop of and run motor up half throttle then check servo travel, seems inav on the Matek board has slow servo till motor is running up, worth checking

Thanks mate. i will give it a try. At the moment i'm still building the  Fascination, nearly done just the battery holder to fit  and the servo covers. getting the c.o.g. sorted is going to be fun  it only fits the room diagonally. :whistling:

That looks better than the old Reptile S800, let me know if it flys better and I will smash my S800 up and change the bits over.

AR900 does fly better than S800, not quite as fast, but the guy building mine had 111mph out of his 900 other day, mind you he had 183kph out of his eashine 680 wing last week

Sounds like the sonic AR900 is nearly done, think Jon is up for test flight tomorrow, he had a problem with not getting start up tone at motor, turned out to be poor connection on signal wire from esc

The '10 ch fw' is great, well I think it's technically now 14 channels. It has timers linked to channels (i.e. set to start a timer when throttle raised above limit and stops again when lower), and you can set alarms on all sorts of things like flight battery V.

Jon is setting it up with Autolaunch on it in RTH, so lob it, it then climbs for 10 secs and then circles

I am very pleased to hear the AR900 is finished and maiden flight all done, pulls just over 5amps at 50+mph, so very efficient, and a very tidy build, i should get it by weekend
