recently I have noticed that after a charge, the total voltage as displayed by the charger was not the fully charged voltage of that battery. Like a 2s would only get to about 8.37V and the charger said it was done. Even weirder, I just started charging a 2200mAh 3s with it, and the individual cells said 4.19-4.20 volts, but the total voltage is said to be only 12.45V??? The cells just hovered around 4.18-4.20 until the total voltage said 12.60V... odd.
Well that was fun. Went to my flying field and a couple other people were there flying some super nice expensive multirotors with lights and GPS... if you didn't know how epic night flying is with multirotors, you should look. The guys there had the DJI Naza with GPS system. They had super bright lights and even though it was pitch black orientation was perfect. When we first got there we were flying my dad's CheapNEasy, but the guys showed up with their multirotors and I just had to stop and watch. One of them had a SUPER bright light on the bottom and it practically lit up the whole field!
Now these guyrs got me wanting a quadcopter... why is RC such an addictive hobby!?!??!
Wanted to calibrate the governor with a full load instead of using a partially changed battery with the blades off. Strapped my 500 down to a coffee table with bungee cords passed through the frame (not the skids) and a towel between the skids and the table to prevent ground resonance.
Looked good and secure, what would possibly go wrong?
Ran it up to full throttle/collective and it started to move the table
Gaui X3, Nano, Hurricane 550
I love helis. Planes are called planks. I have a Gaui X3, Gaui Hurricane 550, Nano CPX DFC, and a few planks. Sometimes I fly my buddy's T-Rex 150, mCPX, 130X, mSR X, 120SR, and 300X.
