Flying despite the uk weather

Can you have to much fun?

Yes.
This afternoon we went flying and I flew that much. My battary went flat smilie . 8 flights or more without charging maybe abit to much my throttle went to tickover I thought it was my new radio gear, but after dad cheecked the lipo it was obvious what had happen. I think you can guess.

After finding that the voltage had dropped to 4.9V (woops) The radio system had cut the throttle to tickover thank god for that.

I hope it will never happen again smilie .

Matt

P.S. Another guy did something and the screw came out. Not good at all.
Although the day has been good.

Purchasing from overseas

I am thinking of purchasing a T-Rex 600. This will be my first model of note. Is it worth purchasing from overseas? For example the following model on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250257795774

Is from a power seller with good feedback and for 290 supplies what looks to me like a good kit complete with motor, esc, batteries etc... Looks like about 400-500 if purchased in the UK.

I am concerned however that the extras supplied will be of poor quality and will need replacing/upgrading almost imediately, what do people think?

Secondly, does any one know what the import duty will be like on this, is it going to be so high as to negate the savings?

I purchased the LHC R22 V1 body kit direct from LHC as a cheap way to create a semi scale Helicopter, the kit arrived without instructions, video,or decal set. Have tried to get help from LHC but they are not rsponding to my request.
Any help would be welcome,the helicopter I wish to fit it to is the standard Shuttle + 2

hi all just a quick note . made some aliuminium tail fins based on the fitted ones but slightly longer ,and they
don't break . Really good for you people on geared tails ,try and keep the side walls thicker though
keeps it solid with little weight
