Review of ToolkitRC M6D 500W 15A High Power DC Dual Smart Charger Discharger for 1-6S Lipo LiHV Lion NiMh Pb Battery



My new charger from Banggod just came. Its ToolkitRC M6D, 500W 15A High Power DC Dual Smart Charger Discharger for 1-6S.
Great thing is that it has 2 independent channels for charging two batteries of same or different kind at the same time and that for great price.




It supports all popular kind of rechargeable batteries like:

DustOff Flight #20 & #21 - RC Converted Chuck Glider - Weeeee! That's Fun ;-)

Time to blow the Dust Off of this Converted RC Chuck Glider ;-)
Well, I'm glad I took this Converted Chuck Glider with me to the Field as I'll fly it in any Wind ;-)
The Wind Forecast was for 3mph (5kph) and the Wind was actually 6-11mph (10-18kph).
This Converted Chuck Glider handles it just fine ;-)
I'll have to take it out sometime when I have 15-20mph (24-32kph) wind to see how this Glider, which has no Gyro, can handle that ;-)

Hello good people!

This adventure starts over at:

Some mods:

Complete:
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...LICK-3D-1300mm

Tuesday early morning was perfect conditions for the maiden flight of my Hobby King SLICK 3D, 1300mm wing span and tipping the digital scale right at 4.1 lbs using the larger GFORCE Elite Series 4-Cell, 4,000mAH, 30C, Lithium Polymer Battery pack. The model without any battery pack tips the digital scale right at 3lbs - 7 ounces.

The SLICK did fly for it's very first flight using the lighter 3-Cell, GEN ACES 2600mAH, 45C, Lithium Polymer battery pack that brought the model to under 4lbs, however, it needed full throttle to take off but, once airborne I was able to throttle back and the model got to step with good airspeed.

Therefore, the model in total flew for 4 flights, two with the 3-Cells and another two flights using the 4-Cells packs.

At the time, I really didn't know why the model at times made an unsolicited nose down movement during level flight and passing the pilots station which of course was much more noticeable. It performed excellent Knife Edge flight without any coupling and Cuban 8's were effortless and a pleasure, especially with the 4-Cell battery packs.

Using the 3-Cells, I noticed that I could fly the model for over 6-minutes as the AMP draw was much less than 30-AMPs and about 250 Watts using that Wooden Master...Continue Reading

Assembly has started !
I am at the point where I have to think about the power plant ( motor ) .
Front section is only tapped on for the picture .

Ailerons needs doing !
Motor / ESC / Battery for CG and power .
The fuse seems tolerable for weight , but that wing is a house brick !

I have a motor , and I will have to test it first . I need thrust and a fair bit of it to haul this house brick !
This plane is not going to fly slow . And I thought the Super Kinetic was heavy !

Polyurethane Foam, Polyethylene Foam, Extruded Polystyrene Foam (XPS), Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) and Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA), insulation foam and similar types of foams are widely used for mould making, statues making, big 3d signs making.
A big size CNC router or a CNC robot with a big long foam mill bits can do these kinds of foam milling job. But how to choose the foam cutters? And how to set rpm specs?

Usually, two kinds of foam mills widely used, ball end and flat end. Flat end foam router bits widely used for foam cutting, rough cutting, ball end foam router bits widely used for foam cutting, finish carving.
For fast milling, you can choose a big diameter shank and CEL foam bits.

How to set the specifications?
The big foam bits RPM designed is 7000-10000RPM.
For EPS foam milling, we suggest setting the spindle RPM at 8000RPM. It is good for the machine cutters and can get a good surface finish.

For example, cut 80mm thickness polystyrene, we suggest twice cutting, one path cut 40mm thickness, running 8000rpm, feed rate at 150mm/Sec.
If you cut 80mm thickness once, run 8000rpm, feed rate should be within 70mm/Sec. Please try it.

Other information for reference:
I usually mill with these bits at about 7,000 rpm, and 70 inches per minute. It depends on the foam. I usually set the feed to 70 ipm, since that is the fastest I want to run the machine. Then do a test cut, and turn the rpm down until the foam cutting sounds good, (sort of a slicing sound)...Continue Reading

Well, it is now a matter of good weather forecast here in Central Florida to maiden my Hobby King SLICK 3D 1300mm model.

Again, I am a Scale / Sport flyer and modeler and just could not stand an airplane as nice looking as this without a Pilot Figure. The Pilot Bust had to be pretty large scale and I looked and looked and found one that matches and pretty light considering it's size! I did find a nice Snoopy Pilot Bust but, it was a little too large, perhaps one day I will acquire a larger SLICK to use this Snoopy?

Yes, I have setup dual rates and expo and will look forward in using all settings but, for now I will try and get it in the Air on it's wing without trying anything too extreme and especially 3D.

The only thing that remains is measuring WATTs / AMPs / Under Load Voltage of the Power System given the two different battery packs that I have selected which is the GEN ACES 3-Cell, 2600mAH, 45C and the GFORCE Elite Series with Nonotech Additives 4-Cell, 4000mAH, 30C, Lithium Polymer batteries.

A few pictures!...Continue Reading
