Extolling the virtues of XT150 connectors

Posted 08-23-2013 at 11:03 AM by TheBum (TheBum's Hangout)

It's been a long time since I've had anything useful to blog, but I figured this was worth the effort.

After a recommendation by a couple of folks on the Compass forum, I decided to use XT150 connectors on my 7HV instead of the EC5s I was originally planning to use. There are fewer unnecessary connections with the XT150s and they're capable of carrying much higher current, which should make for better power transfer and less connector and wire bulk. They're also considerably less...

New Canon HD camcorders announced at CES

Posted 01-09-2010 at 10:52 PM by TheBum (TheBum's Hangout)

I'm drooling over the Canon HD camcorder models announced at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show. Maybe getting one would convince me to do more flight videos. The tough part will be deciding on a model.

I really don't need the still photo resolution of the S series because I already have a nice 10 megapixel Canon digital SLR (Rebel XTi). However, I love the large (3.5") touch screen on the S series and the fact that the highest end model (HF S21) has an electronic viewfinder,...

Found a potential new local source for parts

Posted 02-16-2008 at 11:04 PM by TheBum (TheBum's Hangout)

I stopped into BMI Hobbies in Plano, TX, to pick up the servo cable extension and the young lady who assisted me informed me that they actually have a heli guy on staff and that they carry Align parts as well as the "consumer" brands (E-Flite and Heli-Max). Alas, they only carry T-Rex 450 parts and I'll mostly be flying my 600N, but on those occasions where I need parts for my Diablo, I'll have to keep them in mind.
