Heli-Log 2:20:12

Another weekend in the books!

The temps were in the low 40's with light winds. Disaster struck Saturday on the third flight with my 3D+, after replacing the MKS BL950 HV servos with MKS BL950's and installing an ATG, the 2 cell LiFe battery died! My 3D+ did one more low level back flip into the ground. Damage is minimal, but heart braking to say the lest. The LiFe battery was fully charged (2000mAh) and it was close to the end of the 3rd flight when it died.

Right...

Half way through another month!

Progress at last! I finish everything on my charging station except one exhaust cover for the case. The supplies are mounted, top plate installed, jacks wired (soldered), storage door added, and the charger is mounted and plugged in (including the 24V jumper wire). I did a power up test and everything looks good. I havenít tried charging anything just yet, I need to cut the case and install the other fan cover for proper ventilation.

I finally got around to resizing and uploading the pictures from my charging station project. PSP 1 shows the 2 supplies opened. I have to remove the chassis ground, otherwise it will be impossible to wire the outputs in series. As the second supply' output will become shorted.

PSP 8 shows the 120Vac input being extended so I can wire the two supplies together, have one power plug.
PSP 7 is the power plug removed so it can be mounted to the case.
PSP 5 shows banana jacks...

Heli-Log 2:7:2012

Managed to get out and do some flying this weekend. Saturday was a bust! I barely managed 2 flights due to the wind chill freezing my fingers. During the second flight on my Rave, I had to stop and put my gloves on. The rest of that flight consisted of autos, my gloves were restricting the feel of the sticks.

Sunday, however, was a better day to go flying. Coronal had called shortly after I was out of church and asked if I was heading out to fly, oh yea! So I drove home and picked...

Well here it is...the last day of January! Spring is coming fast!

I'm getting further with my charging station. Both supplies are mounted, drilled the holes for the banana plugs, soldered wires to the banana plugs and they are ready to soldered to the supplies. I have cut most of the Polycarbonate to finish off the inside, just need to assemble the pieces.

I have pic's of this project, I just haven't uploaded them...yet! In the meantime, my 3D+ is patiently waiting...
