hey guys just dropping in to say hi. Hope you are all well.
I just had a good run with my 1/10th HK trooper. Just installed a tower pro mg 955 servo and aluminium slash shocks. I also changed the settings in the esc and it now runs like a dream. Got about a 30min run out of my 3s 5000mah lipo.
Ive got the HK reaktor in the air now and its the best plane ive ever owned. It flies so nice and does what ever you want it too. I used the supplied thread for the push pull setup on elev and rud but it seems that its loosing its tension so I might use fishing line soon.
Raz and BJ you have to get a reaktor guys. On a 3s it has allot of power and its great for 3d. Im learning slowly. Been on the sims heaps too. I got a wireless dongle that plugs into an rx so I can now use my DX6I (trainer port not working).
Got my twin apparition rc boat going as well. Its not as quick as I thought it would be but I would have to drop major coin on it to go faster. Im very happy with it. We just need to make a bigger rescue boat for it now.
Mcpx still has it blades off it. Just need to put the feather shaft back in it and screw it in. Just have been bothered with it for months now but i think ill get it going again soon.
Anyways guys hope your all well and still having fun within the hobby.
BTW raz are you getting one of the HK reno racers, they look decent.
BJ when are you out of the naughty corner?

glad to hear your ban is over BJ.
Ive been up attending to family business as my uncle died. Hard times for all my family. Had a massive dry today and im so tired.
As for rc I have allot of things happening and will put up some vids soon.
raz I got those edf's sorted and just need to build it all with dad soon. Need to fix up the rc car as well as i put in a new motor and modded it but needs a new pinion. MCPX needs a new frame. Gonna slap a new motor on the reaktor and see how she flies then. I got a new piranha boat like i had before like the one dad put a whole in. Looks like the race is back on.
Things are looking up for me too and there is huge news but i cant share it just yet until i know more. kk mums the word

Hey BJ! Glad to see you back on. I havent received any notices from rcgroups in weeks and saw the email today about them being hacked. Good timing actually, glad to see ya made it back to us!

What's this about RCG being hacked?
A few of the locals here have mentioned that they're not receiving PM's, notices etc too.
Pretty sad if ppl stoop so low as to hack this site. But then again, there's been heaps of bad-blood around for over a year now - so it doesn't actually come as a suprise to me that there are those who would take it to the next level. The thing that the hackers may not realise is that they end up punishing everyone else as well. "Payback" can be beartch and bite twice, I guess.
Meh - did my crime, done my time and now I can post again. Finally. Pretty happy about that.
The circumstances surrounding my time-out weren't exactly fair as far as I'm concerned - it could have been handled better. Such is life

I received this email today about the hack:
RCGroups Password Security Notice
11 September, 2012
We are recently aware of a security breach which may result in the disclosure of user information, including email addresses and encrypted passwords.
While users with a password that is not easily guessed have less reason to be concerned, we nonetheless recommend that all RCGroups users change their passwords immediately. You can find some guidelines on what constitutes a strong password here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passwo...rong_passwords (For the nerds out there, the passwords were hashed with a per-user salt, meaning that each password would need to be deciphered individually.)
If you used the same password for RCGroups as for your email account, this is a no-no, and we recommend you immediately change your email account password as well. It is a bad idea to share passwords between any two accounts, so please use this opportunity to make sure you aren't doing that.
Please note that RCGroups will NEVER email you to ask for your password. Always be careful clicking links within emails, even if it appears that those emails came from us, as it is possible that the bad guys are trying to trick you.
We're sorry for any inconvenience. We've taken steps to prevent this from happening in the future. We will keep you updated if we learn anything else that could be of value to you.
