anyone wanting 20% off a couple of servos, there's still a couple of weeks left to send in a couple of old servos and get some fresh Savox goodness...

Just P.M. me when you are ready to fly with us. Fall is just around the corner and all the wild-n-crazy 3D fanatics should be out in force.

Sweet!! Will do. My days off are Sunday and Monday. I need to get some practice in before I come down. All the videos and photos I see you guys post are great! I need to step up my flying for sure. PS I know all about the golden hour. Gotta love it especially in the summer. Best time to fly and photograph.

So guys i got a new charger that measure IR and i was just wondering about how high should the IR be before it is probably time for new batteries? I noticed some of my newer packs read 2-3 but my older packs are between 5-6.

Is that individual cell or total for the pack? From what I've seen you want the individual cells to read pretty close to each other. When you get a cell that reads much different from the others its time to retire the pack. For pack totals you really need to know what it was when the pack was new, so you can sort of track how well the pack is doing.

Well it reads each individual cell but those are the average numbers. So, if it is say twice the IR as when it was new you are definitely going to notice some difference if you get some new packs?

You got the idea. As well as I understand it anyway.

The best way to use IR (in my opinion) is to have a general idea of what they are when the pack is new, and watch out for individual cells that are WAY higher then the others.

Most new packs are like 1-3 (these days) but I've charged some old packs that are like 20-30, but they still work, just not as great as the lower ones. Depends on what plane you're using and for what. Those 20-30 milliohm packs are perfect for lights and rx packs. And who knows, maybe those 5 year old packs that are 20-30 were always 20-30.

It's really good after a crash or you drop one and you see a particular cell twice as much as the others...then you know that cell is going bad.

Does that help?

Rolling Circles

I'm starting to do a decent job of rolling cirlces, pretty excited about it. Want to start practicing straight rollers. What the difference I can go in circles but can't get them going straight.
