Fixing my TDR. Finally was forced to order parts to replace those borrowed from spare kit. Got to point that latest repair no longer possible. Arrived a while ago. With plenty of time available, now doing repairs and builds that have been pending... a while...

Default What are you working on today?

Yesterday I soldered tiny little wires to tiny little connectors. These are BT2.0. Also made a 5x parallel charging cable for these little packs.

Set up on the Oxy 4 today. Too cold to fly, sunny, a good day for it! Got the HW box hooked up, a battery charged, coffee on, good to go!

I was never happy with the wiring job when I first built my Synergy 516. So I pulled electronics back out and redid it. I'm pleased with the wiring now.

Ground rust off of bottom legs of lawn chairs and put rust treatment on them. Will repaint tomorrow


Mounted a set of pro-line tires and knobbies on my 1/10 Summit. Found a couple of split pivot ball boots and ordered some more. Already had new steering links, hubs, hobbywing max10 brushless combo, shocks, and stiffer springs for it on order. I want to still do rock crawling with it, but I also want to do higher speed running. And after two years running, it needed a freshening up. I even ordered a custom Baja bug body for it



Getting my Warp ikon setup finished up this evening. At least enough to get it in the air tomorrow


Trying to stay occupied while being safe. I have a big hernia that needs surgery, but am trying to stave it off till late summer, both for my health and pocketbook. Have to push a bit of what I think is my stomach in sometimes



Any other tips from the community on the Summit would be appreciated

Replacing a bent feathering shaft in a K110. I’m hoping it fixes a tail issue where it won’t hold on hard collectives.

I was working on a couple things today. First I had to dig out from the 18" of snow we got last night.

Then I finished the stickers on my new Diabolo canopy.
