How To Fix a Broken LIPO Balance Lead

Written by gozerian

Repairing a battery could be dangerous so from the outset you must assume this procedure has inherent risks that you must mitigate.

LIPO batteries are volatile and if damaged or punctured could catch fire. For that reason you should not perform this task indoors. You should do this outdoors, away from all flammable and inflammable materials or liquids. You should have a bucket of water or sand at the ready to place your LIPO should something go wrong. You must have a way to fight a fire should it arise. A hose or extinguisher or both would be desirable.

An in Depth Look at the Avios Bushmule

Written by gozerian

I fell in love with this airplane the moment that I pulled it out of the box. It was well packed and sealed to protect it during transport and this is important when you consider just how far a model has to travel to make it half way around the world.

How to Take off or Launch an RC Plane

Written by gozerian

We’ve all seen the guy who runs like an aging warrior with spear at the ready, determined to launch his spear into a close earth orbit. In reality, his sprint falls short and he tosses the glider like he has given up the will to live. Never was there a greater anticlimax!

Quanum Genesis: The Wait is Over

Written by Painless360


Back in May 2016, HobbyKing created a product page for a new set of goggles – the Quanum Genesis. The image showed them with diversity antennas and what looked like a HDMI port and, very interestingly, a FatShark logo on the headband. The forums were quickly awash with speculation and claims about what it would actually be, what this new collaboration would bring to the product and how these would differ from the other FPV goggles on sale(Full video review below)
