Hi Nina,

I think he means that it should have arrived by now since it's already the 18th of Nov.

The last memo Nina sent me said shipping is taking 15-25 days. Lets hope things are just slowed down.

Nina, my order placed 11-9-09 still is marked "to be shipped", is this normal? I am unfamiliar with how the order process works from RC Timer and kind of assumed it would at least be shipped by now. I realize things are slowing down, I just want to make sure that my order will arrive because I have a plane waiting for these parts completely ready to fly, minus what I ordered.

Any help would be appreciated! My order sn is 2009110960566.

Rota, my experience has been that what your account page says at RCTimer doesn't necessarily mean it hasn't been shipped. It seems they don't update very often, plus there is that language issue. My orders take anywhere from 7-14 days to arrive & most are marked "to be shipping" on my account even after I receive them. If you ordered on the 8th., it will probably be the 22nd or so till you receive it. Hobby City takes the same amount of time, but RCTimer is free shipping. Any order from China shipped via anything but airmail usually takes 2 weeks. Good luck!

I imagine HongKong Post will get slower and slower until after Christmas.

Thanks sonny! This transaction is kind of like a trial run for me, so thanks for clearing that up.

You're welcome! There are a bunch of new Chinese online dealers out there now, some even with US warehouses & shipping, (HobbyPartz for example; cheapish & fast shipping.). The difference is that RCTimer has the free shipping thing, and they respond to this thread, (a good thing!). I've ordered 3 times & everything seemed to be as advertised, and shipping time was typical for China, but free. There are some translation oddities on their website, (Favorites is called "Flavours Success" for example), but they seem to be trying to provide a good service. The brushless motor I bought is very nicely built and really screams; I'll report back after a full bench test. I posted a mini-review earlier on this thread on the "Battery Balancer?Watt Meter" I got from them; seems to work just fine! Time will tell, but they seem to be tending to business. Let us know when you receive your order, what you got & how it looks & works; it helps us all if we review what we ordered and post it here. Good luck,

Sonny

Sonny- did you ever get something rigged up to get your balancer calibrated?

Not yet...finding the time?? I get a difference between my EFlight Watt Meter & the RCTimer Battery Balancer/Watt Meter in voltage readings of around .20V+ more on the RCT unit than the EFlight tested on fully charged packs, so which is correct? It seems to balance well, getting the cells within .10V after balancing. I need to make the series power connector you describe, (I have a whole bunch of Dean "clone" connetors), to calibrate the balancing function; but can we calibrate the pack voltage readings? One drawback is it doesn't measure amps, just watts. BTW: The Eflight meter shows the same difference in voltage readings when compared to my Multiplex charger also, (I charge through the Watt Meter to compare the voltage readings between the two as they charge). Maybe the EFlight unit is the one that's "off". The RCT unit seems to use a system of draining high cells to "fill" the lower cells to balance them all, then, as you said stops when they are balanced. However, it does have a separate Lipo discharge function; I assume, (hope?), it stops when it discharges down to 3.0V per cell. I tried it, but the balancer got pretty hot so I stopped the discharge just in case, then balanced and recharged the pack. I think the unit is handy and small enough to pack to the flying field, so for the money it seems like a good deal. I just want to make sure it's readings are accurate; I will use your calibration procedure as soon as I make the series connector for the packs. I'm going to use it tomorrow to bench test the brushless motor, (28-30-13), I got from them and will report that data soon.

Dear sonny1,
Thanks for your message.
"around . 20V+ more" means 0.2V+? Our watt meter without charge function, so it can't charger Multiplex charger. “One drawback is it doesn't measure amps, just watts. "Our watt meter can balance each single lipo cell, mean sure watt, test amps and volts. Sorry, I think I can't understand you well, could you please explain it a little more?
Thank you.

Nina
