  2. I have several Macgregor single-channel sets and all work perfectly with good range. Back in the day Macgregors were very popular in our club (SSA) and I dont recall any trouble with them at all. Their early superhet receivers were a bit odd with their 470k IF so needed a 'Macgregor' crystal pair, but again mine are still working fine today - in fact I just blagged another pair of 470k IF crystals from Shaun. The proportional Digimacs are popular conversion projects, 1, 1+1, 2, 3 and 4 channel πŸ˜ƒ Ron has just done a 1+1 https://mode-zero.uk/viewtopic.php?p=14869#p14869 and a Digimac 4: https://mode-zero.uk/viewtopic.php?p=14910#p14910 Brian has done an MR200: https://mode-zero.uk/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1730&p=14381 Rob has done a Codamac: https://mode-zero.uk/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1668&p=13815 and a Digimac 3: https://mode-zero.uk/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1540 Gary's Digimac 3: https://mode-zero.uk/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=504 and heres my Digimac 1+1 conversion from 12 years ago, still a regular flyer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHaUvmsJdU4 Cheers Phil .
  3. Could it be an eyesight problem? get him to read a car number plate at a distance?
  4. It seems to me the site is creating the html for a blank page which is being delivered and rendered correctly by the browser, its not the OS or the browser, it happens regardless of device (Win/Android/Linux) & browser type πŸ™‚
  5. Aw thanks Matt thats very kind but my bag is really the earlier stuff 😏
  6. Yes, Brian meant "mode-zero" https://mode-zero.uk where I've posted a link to your Sprengbrook πŸ™‚ Please, whilst you're there, have a look around, and if you've a few minutes also on http://www.singlechannel.co.uk Cheers Phil
  7. Receiver to transmitter range isnt the same thing, telemetry sent at a much lower power level πŸ™‚
  8. Thats 100% wrong Eric, I was 'done' soon after we had the kids! πŸ™‚
  9. Sorry this wasnt meant to imply that you should generally charge at over 1C it was just a failed attempt to explain the maths and the irrelevance of cell-count. I fully agree with Pete & John. I'll get back in me box... πŸ™‚
  10. Is there a way to control the on-screen preview size of Youtube videos? I tried embedding html with "<iframe width="320" height="200" ... etc>" but it just displays the code not the video. Or maybe post a reduced version of the video thumbnail with an underlying link to the actual video? I cant find a way to edit a post in html, surely there must be a trick I missed πŸ™‚ ? Here's an example, this video looks huge but cant (?) be resized:
  11. Chris is right, you seem to be relating cell count to charge rate: >>π˜Έβ„Žπ˜’π‘‘ π‘π˜©π‘Žπ˜³π‘”π˜¦ π˜³π‘Žπ˜΅π‘’ π‘π˜’π‘› 𝐼 π‘ π˜’π‘“π˜¦π‘™π˜Ί π˜Άπ‘ π˜¦ π˜°π‘› π‘šπ˜Ί 4𝑆 π‘π˜’π‘‘π˜΅π‘’π˜³π‘–π˜¦π‘  >>𝐼 β„Žπ˜’π‘‘ β„Žπ˜¦π‘Žπ˜³π‘‘ π‘“π˜°π‘™π˜¬π‘  π‘‘π˜°π‘–π˜―π‘” 4𝘚 π˜£π‘Žπ˜΅π‘‘π˜¦π‘Ÿπ˜ͺπ‘’π˜΄ π˜’π‘‘ 5.0𝘈 π˜Έπ‘–π˜΅β„Žπ˜°π‘’π˜΅ π˜ͺπ‘›π˜€π‘–π˜₯π‘’π˜―π‘‘ ... when in fact the cell count takes no part in your charge calculations... if you had two 1Ah packs, one is 6S and one is 2S, a one amp charge would charge either in an hour, two amps would do it in half an hour, three amps would charge them in 20 minutes, four amps 15 minutes and so on. Cell count doesnt come into it πŸ™‚ Your 3.3Ah packs (regardless of cell count) will charge in an hour at 3.3 amps. Or half an hour at 6.6 amps. time-to-charge=capacity/current Not sure if I'm helping or causing further confusion πŸ™‚ Cheers Phil
  12. A long walk is the only real way to check any R/C set, low-power 30 pace checks prove very little and can even give a false confidence. I range test at night, have a channel indicator with superbright red & green leds that can easily be seen over a mile away. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0VMsjXb2iA
  13. I'm getting the blank page (with just the ad header) quite frequently from 3 different PCs, clicking 'refresh' brings up the full page.
