I showed a guy at work (electric rc car racer) my Cellpro & tried explaining how good it was. He just looked at it & me in a VERY sarcastic manner & said "hmmm yes i can really see it's a good quality well made charger" He thinks coz it's not got a lot of buttons & has a fully enclosed body that it's absolutley bottom of the bargain bin cheap crap! Do car drivers not understand ? is it a heli thing? He is a Kn@b though.

I did rc drifting a while ago and they actually have the contacts of the cells in their battery packs open . Lipos aren't worth it in a car, one crash and boom! brushless motors have only really been introduced recently. i have always liked rc cars but always had heatshrink over our battery contacts . I do all types of rc, i have about 11 planes, three helis, three cars and two boats haven't got a sub yet

There's a proper flying field there with a proper disused runway but it's mostly planes & all stereotype rc plane flyers. Having said that i haven't spoken to them but watched for a bit & no one had 2.4ghz

There are atleast two runways aren't there? the campsite is situated on the old taxi ways, perfect for the x-twins

You should race his cars against your heli

This is the one i was refering to. This is a great google earth image because you can see the HUGE planes behind the cars & the shadow of one flying & you can see the guy flying it too.

I've just got back from flying at my field again. Only 1 & 1/2 lipo's coz the bugs were going mad. More stall turns & one circle.

Flying at 9/10PM? I would never do that :P.


I'm thinking about making my Falcon 3D a back garden flyer just needs a servo, AR6100 and a new landing skid. Having bad luck with the damn picoo z's..... :P


Searching through local club and they all look like old folk plane crap.

Thinking about starting my own little free website up to get some more fliers down my local field, even though it's public. You never know...

There's only 1 New Forest & it is MASSIVE (roughly around 354 square miles). There is another dissused airfield in a part on the way to bourmouth

Why not? it was daylight but a little dull because of the dark clouds. My canopy is bright enough so seeing it was not a problem & the weather is so calm in the evening. I wont fly if the sun is setting.

I flew today.. my first time ever flying my B400 outside.. just hovering in the driveway as I get used to the stock settings on this new heli... after a few more batteries I will start playing around with curves and gains etc. Nice heli! But sad what I read about the cheap parts. I already have (in waiting) new quality servos and a GY401 gyro.. and now I am learning I might need to upgrade the ESC.

If you are in the hovering stage, I can't see how these upgrades will make any difference to you.

I see that too. That's why I am using the heli stock only for now... and in the future (as I strip servos etc)... then I'll install the new stuff. If I find the stock gyro is just fine.. I'll sell my NIB GY401.

I am just in the hovering stages because I am new to this heli.. I am into FFF and such with my HBFP.. so it won't take me long for the B400 to catch up.
