Need a battery for DX6

Anyone going out tomorrow who has enough batteries for the old DX6 radio that I can borrow or even buy? I bought one I thought would work last weekend but it doesn't.

Vic sr.???

Sorry, I have not accumulated enough points to visit the flying site this weekend, saving them all up for next Saturday.

AFAIK, Beat the Heat is still on for end of July.

Boy, we skipped right over Spring and went straight to Summer. Rolleyes:

Here is a story that was on my home page from Cox. Not good for the Hobby.


Report: Cargo of lithium batteries on UPS plane should have been treated as hazardous cargo
04-03-2011 12:42 PM MST |By JOAN LOWY, Associated Press
WASHINGTON (Associated Press) --
An accident report says the cargo of a United Parcel Service plane that caught fire and crashed last year in Dubai included lithium batteries that weren't declared as hazardous cargo.
The report was released Sunday by the Dubai government's civil aviation authority. It paints a harrowing picture of two pilots struggling desperately to land their plane. It says the pilots ran out of usable emergency oxygen, so the captain left the cockpit to find portable oxygen canisters. He apparently never returned.
Smoke was so thick in the cockpit that the first officer couldn't see his flight instruments or change radio frequencies.
The report is expected to raise questions about the safety of air shipments of the batteries, which are the focus of an intense lobbying battle in Washington.

Its better if you store your glues in a nice cool place.

+1 on the cool place suggestion.

Also, make certain they are well sealed, and do not store them with any accelerators, as even tiny vapor wisps can start the reaction if things aren't sealed as well as you'd hoped.
