    Heli pilot's 1st plane

    I've been flying helis for a little over a year (MCPX v2 and 120 SR). I'm looking at joining a club with an airfield and want to step-up to a 450 flybarless heli in the next 6 months or so. An...

    RE: Atomik Barbwire Problem

    If you can find a name on the ESC you might find the manual online. Very often, RTRs will still use various brands of ESCs, receivers, etc. I think it pretty much has to have an LVC setting, though...

    RE: Atomik Barbwire Problem

    You might have an LVC (Low Voltage Cut-off) setting on your ESC that doesn't match battery's voltage. If you haven't already, read the ESC manual and see if there is a way to set the LVC. You might...

    RE: XT60 to banana plug adapter

    Bad description on my part... in looking for a better description, I found what I needed. What I'm calling "bullet" is also called an XMT 4mm. I also realized that it was the make end, not the...

    I have a boat with XT60 connectors and a car with banana plugs. The boat and car both run on 7.2v batteries. With my car, I have a 3800 mAh NiMH battery and a 5000 mAH Lipo. My boat only has an...

    RE: can someone please help

    Contact the police. You need to be nasty... google his address and zoom in on his house. Send him the picture and tell him you are sending it to the police. If he tells you he is going to call his...

    Servo installation

    I got a MG996R servo as an upgrade (using the term loosely), for the stock servo for my Redcat Caldera XB 10e. I'm new to RC cars and am installing my first servo and have a problem.

    The servo...

    Memphis - racing on ice rink

    We want to look at doing some bashing on the ice at our ice rink in Memphis... something similar to the video below, but maybe with some ramps and such:

  9. RE: Is there anything that I don't need to Loctite?

    I talked to Redcat support, and they said not to use Loctite on their plastic (they need to edit their videos). Any thoughts on using Elmer's Glue for the screws going into plastic or even just an...

    RE: Wrench size

    I called Redcat and the size is 5 mm.
  11. RE: Caldera 10e exploded view and parts list

    Good info. I searched all over, but couldn't find. Obviously, the OEM doesn't identify the names of the cars so I didn't pick up.

    Also, I like having the .pdf files as they are easy to...

    Wrench size

    I've got to order a heli part and need to get to $25 for free shipping. I figured I would also get a cross wrench and a turnbuckle wrench for my Caldera XB 10e. I know the sizes for the cross...
  13. Caldera 10e exploded view and parts list

    Redcat doesn't have the Caldera 10e manual online so I made a couple of .pdf files, one for the exploded view drawing and one for the parts list. The exploded view isn't great resolution but you can...
  14. RE: Is there anything that I don't need to Loctite?

    Good info. After reading your response, I did a search and also found some occurrences of where Loctite had harmed some plastics, though it appears that it won't harm all plastics. The strange...
  15. Is there anything that I don't need to Loctite?

    Regarding my Caldera 10e, is there anything that I don't need to Loctite? I've got some medium strength Threadlock and plan to go ahead and lock all of the screws. Obviously, I wouldn't add...

    RE: Waterproofing

    I did some more checking around, and I think I'm going to try Corrosion X.  Though it leaves some residue, I think it will still be easier to use than the liquid tape/liquid rubber products.  I think...
  17. RE: Addind water resistance to Caldera 10e

    I didn't see any videos for containers, but some referenced containers during the waterproofing video.  I'll see if I can find.  I might go with the baloon method for the receiver.  As I understand...

    Waterproofing

    I'm new to RC cars (not new to RC), and have seen a lot on Youtube about waterproofing ESC, receiver, and servo. This seems like a great DIY idea, but has the potential ramifications of destroying...
  19. RE: Addind water resistance to Caldera 10e

    I watched the video and a lot of other Youtube in regards to waterproofing.  It is very interesting and seems pretty easy.  Of course, the $10, $20, or $200 question is, will you kill the component...

    RE: Caldera 10e oil-filled shocks

    Great info.  I'm learning a little at a time.  Cars are a lot different than helis (I guess I'm stating the obvious).  There is a mechanical and performance element that seems pretty important even...

    Sounds good.  I just wanted to run around the yard a couple of times this weekend.  Still waiting on a replacement charger before I can use my lipo.  If I'm lucky, I'll have everything by the end of...

    Bent/mis-glued wheel

    My Caldera 10e shipped with what is either a bent or just a misglued rear left wheel. You can clearly see when you roll the vehicle back and forth. The wheel goes back-and-forth from a negative...
  23. RE: Addind water resistance to Caldera 10e

    Thanks... I thought about using Saran Wrap.  I figured if I ran from tire well to tire well, going over the prongs that hold the body (I don't know all the part names, yet and am not looking at an...
  24. Addind water resistance to Caldera 10e

    One of the reasons I purchased my 10e was to test the idea to have RC ice racing at our ice rink (we didn't make it up; we got the idea off YouTube). I don't know that actual waterproofing will be...

    RE: New Thunder A6 charger problem

    They do state this in their policies, but who reads that stuff?... I guess I read it now. It just takes a lot of gall for a vendor to accept payment for something, ship it, it doesn't work, and then...
