    RE: deans connectors on a 1/5th scale?!? lmao.

    Actually I could come up with scenarios where a short on the battery end could cause an ESC failure, but it would be rare / improbable.
    For instance the ESC has a capacitor on the front end of the...

    RE: LIPO !!!! CHANCES OF EXPLODING ??? :0

    People, once there is a fire / burst / explosion, the hard case is not going to help. In fact it could become heated shrapnel, increasing the damage done rather than abating it.

    RCX

    What did you guys think of this years RCX?

    RE: Go Pro camera + spectrum 2.4= failsafe.

    Even if the camera does not itself transmit RF as a function, it's theoretically possible that it could be emitting RF interference, but it would really be a fluke if it was.

  7. RE: China's J-20 Better Than F-22? Well I do not think so

    It's not the plane, it's the pilot.

    Many famous historical match-ups are like this. For instance, the MIG-15 vs. the F-86. Comparatively, they were relatively evenly matched, each some...
  8. RE: Comming Back after 10 Year hietus, 72 Mhz vs 2.4Ghz?

    All I can say is don't use 2.4GHz for the large or expensive models without some kind of backup system. It's fine for park flyers or minis that are cheap and easy to replace but the 2.4GHz band as a...

    Hobbyists have been doing airsoft and paintball guns on RCs for years, again just search youtube and you can find some examples. Search the web and you will find others.

    I know what you're saying and I'm not disagree with it. I just think it's too late for that.

    Not a matter of being advantageous or disadvantageous, good or bad; it is simply a matter of inevitability. Not only is it the natural trend for things, but growth is necessary for the hobby to...

    RE: Storing Lipo's

    Basically after a run, charge them up to 3.7 / 3.8V and then store. On the night before, or early in the day of the run, charge them up to 100%.

    And be sure to balance. Avoid storing for any...
  18. RE: Lipo Fire Destroyed my E-Maxx among other things

    You already use LiPos whether you like it or not. Your cellphone/blackberry/iPhone most likely uses a LiPo. Your personal videogame player (ie. PSP), your apple iPod, etc. They almost all use...
  19. RE: Lipo Fire Destroyed my E-Maxx among other things

    Yeah, even if you spend ten years or more in the hobby, ideally you only have to buy one charger, maybe two if you want to charge multiple batteries at once. So make it a good one, not an unknown.

    In practice these bags are rather questionable, in order to be effective the LiPo needs to be fully placed inside the bag which makes it much harder to see any of the warning signs (like puffing,...
