lol

its odd, in my area we have hardly had any snow.

Last year we got a real dumping - this year not soo much.

I when I was in high school, like 15 years go which isnt a long time really, we used to get a lot more snow.

Not anymore

things are changing on this planet, as well as our solar system my friends.

The folks down in Australia will be talking a LOT about change momentarirly from the reports I'm getting off of the Australia Broadcasting System. You should see the satellite photo of this Cyclone Yasi. It is half the size of the continent. Big time ugly.

Shifting magnetic polar caps (3 min 39 sec)


This women laughs and calls the guy a nerd, which is ignorant at best, everything is a big joke I guess.

I'm not saying this vid is completely valid, but interesting nonetheless

so i put on new gear on CPX today

Was gunna test fly indoors tonight, but its been cancelled due to weather.
So hopefully I can take it outside tomorrow and test to make sure "just" the gear stripped and not something else.

I also need to add in new spektrum RX and new ESC.

I have no idea how to program my DX6i for my CPX

anyone have any ideas?

I just noticed something about my CPX head assembly.

Off the sea saw fly bar assembly, there is only one link going down, the other side of the sea saw doesnt have one ??

I dont remember loosing it, and or never noticed it flying off.

I assume that it would need both linkages?

missing a link

dont know when that happened, because I'm pretty sure when the gear got stripped it was still there.
maybe it fell off

Anyways I need the middle piece as per link below. Link that goes from fly bar ring down to sea saw.

Interesting idea. I hope that no one minds that I will let someone else be the "first kid on the block" to get one.

Guys I've got a question that I need an answer for before trying it.

Can I use a Ni-CD charger for NIMH batteries?

They are all AA batteries.

Hey HC, why not take this question over to the "Batteries and Chargers" section of RC Groups? I am sure you will get the absolute, definitive word over there.

Yes.
Keep a watch on them for temp.

Edit:
Maybe I should clarify.
Monitor their temp. Use the ole cheek test.
Some nicd chargers will undercharge nimh (most likely). Some will overcharge nimh (less likely).
Is it an overnight charger or a quick charger?

I want to say overnight. I'll give it a try and monitor them. Once they're warm, they're done right?
