RE: Santa is pondering a mini hobby grade car for my 3 year old son...

RE: Herr Pitts Special Kit Build Thread

Here's a pic of the plans showing the CG. It's roughly 15/16" behind the back edge of the main spar. I had to put my Rx pack as far forward as it could go under the cockpit area to get the CG on.

RE: Intellipeak ICE - detecting cut-off voltage incorrectly during discharge?

Forgot to note. I didn't have luck with my Tx pack but did with some smaller packs with regards to dropping the discharge rate. I recalled reading a while back that the Futaba Transmitters have a...

RE: Battery Cycler - Hobbico Accu-Cycle or Great Planes ElectriFly Triton2?

Mostly NiMh and NiCd Rx and Tx packs now - 150mAh to 1600mAh. A few 3s1p 1700mAh lipo packs and a few 3000mAh NiMh car packs. This cycler would be primarily for my Rx and Tx packs.
