  1. Sticky: RE: How to convert an ATX power supply to rc use

    Got my 430w PSU completed and working reliably.

    The 350w is a bit of a strange one. A pair of 10w10ohm resistors in series and it turns on all the time, BUT it will not power on with a single...

    RE: need lipo education

    Are you sure this is correct?

    My understanding is that the motor will only use what you feed it. A 25C won't harm anything that could use the current of a 40C (assume same cell count and mah)....
  3. Sticky: RE: How to convert an ATX power supply to rc use

    What you are describing sounds normal after reading the whole thread. Most of these don't like having a load placed on the 12v AFTER being turned on. I'm cool with that, but in my case, it wouldn't...
  4. Sticky: RE: How to convert an ATX power supply to rc use

    Ok, so if I got this right, the 1ohm/10w one I bought is useless, resulting in a draw of 5amps, or 25w turning it into a fireball.

    sigh..

    Edit: Found this nifty little program to help me...
  5. Sticky: RE: How to convert an ATX power supply to rc use

    My local electronics haven let me down. Only 1 10w 10ohm resistor on the shelf... I picked up a 10w 1ohm as well, but I don't even know why... I've been too lazy to figure out the math for the...
  6. Sticky: RE: How to convert an ATX power supply to rc use

    I love this thread.

    I'm picking up resistors on the way home to complete my first PSU build.

    FWIW, I just de-pinned all the connectors and bundled like colors for the shakedown phase, that...

    RE: Official ECX Torment Thread

    That helps a lot. Pics aren't working, but I've seen something like it.

    There is a thread on ultimate rc (ok to mention other forum?) where someone did something very similar, but used an...

    Bump. Suspense is killing me.
  9. RE: Conversion of an old Sears Roebuck/Taiyo Off Road Buggy to Futaba interface

    I really want to do this to my old Red Arrow now.

    Everything electrically still works in that one, but the gears in the steering servo are stripped beyond recognition, and the rear tires have...

    RE: Official Radio Shack Golden Arrow Thread

    This thread makes me glad I never threw out my Red Arrow.

    I just dug it out of a corner a couple days ago.

    Its steering servo is destroyed and the rear tires have collapsed where it was...

    RE: What's Your R/C Story

    Yeah, I was NOT prepared for what the SC10 did when I first pulled the trigger. I had tried a proper hobby car once before, and that was about 20 years ago now, a gold pan RC10 that belonged to a...

    RE: What's Your R/C Story

    Always had a thing for RC cars.

    Had both the red and black Turbo Hopper way back when, destroyed both, I think, either way long gone.

    Last one was a Red Arrow from Radio Shack, stripped the...
  13. RE: Please help, was told electric was a good way to go for a beginner

    See if its possible to re-calibrate the controller. I checked the manual on the Redcat site, but couldn't find anything helpful at a quick glance.

    RE: Official ECX Torment Thread

    Awesome. I can almost see how the 2wd Traxass bar would work, but the front bumper assembly is just different enough to make me wonder.

    I'm ok with either adding a hole or using one of the shock...

    RE: Official ECX Torment Thread

    PM sent. I picked up a Torment for my 12yr old a couple days ago and its been on its roof twice already.

    I'd love to throw at least a front sway on it but even though several people have done...
