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...

Progress at last!

This last weekend was spent working on the two server power supplies (HP PSG 1200FB A). After much internet research, I was able to get both of them working! To start, I was looking for two 12v, 1000w supplies to use in series for my Hyperion 720i Duo3 charger (a 500w x 500w 20A 2x7S 1000w 14S max). This is the second step for getting into 90 size electrics…the first was the charger.

I put a 220 ohm resistor across pins 33 & 36 which turned on...

Thursday we finally got snow…around 4”, then the temp dropped into the teens. I had all my batteries (6 cell LiPo’s) charged and ready to go! My Compass 3D+ and Rave are running great, so everything is on standby, ready for a moments notice. But that was while there was no snow and the temps were between 35 and 45 degrees. However, old man winter had other ideas and now it’s time to put my heli’s to rest for the winter.

I was going to leave the LiPo’s charged until I read the thread...

Last night was consumed with cleaning, instead of getting a flight in before the sun goes down.

Yep, it’s time to clean out the ole work shop! Had too many projects that spawned leftover parts all over my bench. And the tool box was stacked fairly high (pretty sad). So now is a good time to re-organize and find places to put everything. Now I need a section in the work room for all the electronic goodies I have collected. This project might take the rest of this week…maybe a re-layout...
