  1. Perfect, that's just the thing, thank you 🙂
  2. Ah man I knew there was more to it... Have you got any reccomendations for a cheap charger? I won't be using it a whole lot to be honest but as long as it doesn't burn the house down I will be happy.
  3. From that response I gather I am correct and just need the adaptor? It wasn't so much of an issue of finding one but the fact there wasn't many about so I didn't know if I was trying to achieve something unachievable. EDIT: Your link is now one to multiple so it answers my question, just need the adaptor. Thank you 👍
  4. What I am trying to do is charge some 4 cell receiver batteries (NiMH/NiCAD) but finding the connectors isn't as easy as I thought it would be so I'm thinking maybe I am doing something wrong. This is the charger I have: https://www.overlander.co.uk/chargers/e455-charger-50w-4a-li-nimh-charger.html And I am trying to charge some batteries like these: https://www.overlander.co.uk/nimh-batteries/panasonic-eneloop-aa-2000mah-4-8v-square-nimh-battery.html Am I correct in thinking I need a XT-60 male to JR connector female connector? The charger has the ability to charge NiCAD and NiMH so I know that's fine but it's more difficult that I would expect to find the adaptor which usually means it's not a common thing to do and I am likely incorrect?
  5. The canopy is different, also the tail looks different as there is a part that goes between the V wings where as this one looks to just epoxy on, there's no holes or anything Nose is too long on this one, very similar other than that though
  6. Bought a few models recently, once of those being a composite body slope soarer, I just wanted to see if anyone knew what it is? I've started re-covering it as the old covering was very tatty, not sure if I want to go with the colour scheme, it will probably look better once it's finished or I may go yellow and white.
  7. Stuck the Kavan Brushless motor C2830-1300 in with the 10x6 prop and it flew amazing. Only issue was about 5 minutes in it decided to jam on the rudder full and it fell out the sky. Luckily I wasn't too high so it's under repair as the break was perfect: What would be the most likely cause of this? There's no interference in the area as it's quite a way from anywhere else and there are no close cell towers. I'm thinking I stuck the ESC too close to the receiver or it moved a bit and caused it to jam on a servo. Or could it be a faulty servo? Not sure what the most common thing to cause this is... It was quite close at the time so it wasn't a lack of signal...
  8. This isn't the easy pigeon, I will probably put a similar motor in that to what I'll stick in this as they are very similar weight and size wise. I added the lead to the front of this just to try and get the CG close to what it should be, I was hoping with a larger motor I can't take some off and I may stick the motor outside as this will also bring the weight forward. The ESC died at the beginning of the session but I used other more well known brands and I was using it for a couple of hours. I do have the following motors that arrived today: - Kavan Brushless motor C2830-1300 - Kavan Brushless motor C2822-1200 - Overlander Brushless Outrunner Motor V3 2826/09 1900KV And the following props: - Graupner Super Carbon Folding Prop Blades 10x4.7 - Graupner Super Carbon Folding Prop Blades 8x6 - Graupner Super Carbon Folding Prop Blades 7.5x4 - Graupner Super Carbon Folding Prop Blades 10x6 What would you suggest as a good pairing on 2S? Also, I don't suppose you recognise the model? It would be good to know what it is as I really like it.
  9. Bought some ropey gliders from Inwards at the weekend and after a bit of tweaking, a replacement Chinese motor and cleaning up/balancing I can confirm I love flying. The simulator time paid off and I was soaring with the red kites in a £10 glider 😁 No idea what the airframe is but it can handle some loops (although keeping the speed to a minimum). One Chinese ESC went up in smoke after the engine died so I won't be using those again. Now the question is how can I make the batteries last longer? It's currently got a 2212 2200kv Chinese motor in and it's massively over powered on 3S's but with 2S it's great. With a 2200mh 2S it weighs 1100g. What would you recommend? If I could get away with a 1400mh 2S it would be ideal as it flew a lot better and I think this is quite heavy for a glider. VID_20240508183107.mp4
  10. I think that's for a different forum
  11. Or folding props/spinners Anything old that you will never use again I'm your guy 😁👍🏻
  12. Managed get a load of old gliders/foam models from Inwoods yesterday and gave a few of them a fly but there was a mixture of Chinese brushless motors (got very hot and didn't run properly) or no motors at all so I'm looking for anyone who wants to clear out a load of crap old motors or brushed ESC's they won't ever use again. I'll give them a new lease of life and I'm happy pay and cover postage costs. Anything considered to be honest, I'm learning to fly so want to train on these older tatty models before I move on to my decent models I've built up.
  13. I've bought the Radiomaster Zorro for now and when I start flying the larger models I will get a TX16 👍 Cheers guys!
  14. I like it. I'm thinking I may buy both, the Zorro for slope soaring and gliding and the TX16 for the bigger powered models.
