Could the national power grid cope if you decided to charge them ALL at once, Kill? NASA would probably get the blame, I expect.

Anyway...flybars! I couldn't get a replacement for my broken S107 flybar so knocked up one of my own with a couple of bits of plastic tube and a few turns of solder wrapped around and CA'd securely. Quick and dirty.

Pretty self-explanatory really; I just wound what I thought 'looked right' (8 turns) and I think it's come out fractionally heavier than the stock flybar weights. I considered extending the flybar but kept it to the same size as stock.

How does it fly? As good as new! It's not a shelf queen anymore. Actually seems a slightly more solid hover due to the heavier flybar. I can always easily replace it with a stock item should it become available.
