Formers in-planking starts! by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 days ago
I mostly use Aliphatic PVA in my aircraft builds. Was watching a video on youtube of an aeromodellers channel I subscribe too and he swears by 502! bought 500ml for just over £3 at tool station!

3D sanding discs. by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 days ago
Evenin' Colin, Yep, the Böhler stuff seems to be built like the proverbial 'brick s**t house' 😉 You shouldn't have any import tax / duty to pay as long as UK is still in the EU! Same goes for me ordering stuff the other way round, so I'm stocking up a bit (Component Shop, Deans etc) before Theresa and co screw everything up for us🤔 Cheers Doug 😎 Just a thought: if push comes to shove then for such small items I could order them here and send on by post! Hope it doesn't come to that but you never know with the current crop of politicians, both sides of the Channel! The mess the Germans have made over the last 5 months reminds me of Italy, but then they change governments more often - but much much quicker. More practice I suppose 😉

upgrading Turnigy i6 to 10 channels by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 17 days ago
No sweat Rob! 👍 Anyone else need a readable and comprehensive manual for the Turnigy i6 (or whatever your version is called!)? Just PM me. Cheers Doug 😎

Hi Chris. Congratulations on a successful upgrade, I'll feel much more confident when I get around to doing mine. Good call Doug 👍 Rob.

Hi Chris Glad it's all working OK. I suspect you will not be the only one who has struggled with this.

Great stuff👍 Freut mich zu hören 😉

Hooray, it all works! Just that extra half a second on the cancel button was all it took. Phew! Thanks to you all. It takes a bit of time but the penny usually drops. Alles ist in ordnung Doug Chris

upgrading Turnigy i6 to 10 channels by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 19 days ago
Hi Dave, yes you're right. My version is marketed by Conrad here in Germany under the brand name REELY and they call it the 'HT-6'. It came with comprehensive manuals in German and good English on a mini CD-RM. When I checked on the Conrad site (they have an excellent Downloads page 😊) I found an update from 2015. I had no problems completely programming the TX unit from this manual. The only error in it was in para. 16 "press the binding button on the receiver ..." when of course it is on the TX! But at least the photo legend was correct😉 If anyone wants a copy of the PDF file PM me and I'll mail it to them. This reminds me of the discussion we had on this unit and clones / branding a few months ago! When I looked on the Turnigy site I found only the half Chinese half English gobbledygook manual 🤔 which needs a lot of interpretation. Penalty I paid for much better documentation was that Conrad price was nearly twice the Turnigy/Hobbyking price 😡 Good luck Chris, - if I were you I'd do a 'Factory Reset' and start from scratch step by step. Cheers Doug 😎 PS w.r.t. 'using what for what' My Turnigy/Reely will probably be used for most surface ships. Will probably use my Spektrum DX6 for the Catalina, and I still have the old Graupner MC-10 40MHz for the two subs where 2.4 gig don't woik 🤔. MC-10 only has two model memories so that fits! Now what can I do with the old Sanwa 35Meg job??? 30 years old and still going strong 😉

upgrading Turnigy i6 to 10 channels by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 19 days ago
Hi Chris I believe you have correctly installed the update as the screen shows the 10 channels. When you allocate the switches etc to channels it's a two part process to save the changes, click OK then press and hold Cancel. If you don't hold the cancel long enough it doesn't save the settings. At my weekly club sail I helped sort out A Turnigy clone and discovered what was required. Doug (RN in Munich) has confirmed his Turnigy works the same.

upgrading Turnigy i6 to 10 channels by octman Captain   Posted: 19 days ago
Hello again, sorry not been able to reply to the last few posts. I did the upgrade before I had ever done the binding. As I said, the display screen that shows bars moving in relation to the stick and switch movement shows all 10 channels, as opposed to it's original display of only 6, but using the switches, which I have allocated to the new channels, causes no reaction whatsoever. I bound the receiver(10 channel) and a servo plugged into each channel in turn only reacted to channels 1 to 6. I have followed the various YouTube videos, (some are better than others), and cannot see that I have done anything wrong, but I will have another go in a day or two. Fingers crossed, or stick with 6 channels. Chris

Hi Doug I hope this works for Chris. My fellow sailor Doug has a Turnigy clone, can't remember the name but I suspect it's a language translation or typo error. You have, I believe, the German equivalent of the Turnigy so I am not surprised that your documentation is more precise. Such a pity that the translations often prevent users from achieving the full benefits of the otherwise very good kit. I am switching most of my fleet to the FLySky from the Planet kit I was using. Still have the Taranis Plus for more serious control but the FlySky is great for everyday two channel models including yachts and seems to run for ever on dry cells (as did the Planet) so doesn't need charging each week.

Hi Dave, you are correct, and actually that is mentioned, page 19 of the 2015 manual version. Worked for me when I assigned the extra switches and pots to appropriate channels. Cheers Doug 😎

upgrading Turnigy i6 to 10 channels by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 20 days ago
Hi Chris One of my fellow modellers was at the lake today with a Turnigy type clone. Not touch screen so had the push buttons to set up. He was having problems setting the end point and servo reverse. Seemed to change correctly and pressing OK then cancel returned to the main screen. The setting however had not changed. Tried a couple of times with same result. Third time I pressed and held onto the cancel button and the screen went blank then reappeared as the main screen. Bingo the changes had taken. It would appear you need to press and hold the cancel button for a second or two to allow the internal chip to be programmed. Doug has read the instructions which do not mention holding the button. Your software update has worked as the display shows all ten channels. I do believe the final stage where you allocate the controls may need you to hold the cancel button to retain the settings. Worth a try. Please let us know if it works

HERMANN MARWEDE by Inkoust Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 20 days ago
REWELL Kit 1:72, fitted with 3 MIG 280 DC motors, 3 DC controllers up to 20A, 1 LiPol battery 2200mA, 4 channel Turnigy receiver, one microswitch for two rudders. It is dyed with REWELL semi-matt colors in synthetic colors and at the end over decals and the whole ship three layers of glossy REWELL lacquer. The ship was imported with lead by the keel so that it did not curve on the opposite side in turns. Because I did not reach the four-bladed bolts, I modified three-blade brass. For the time being, the boat has only been tested in a bath at home due to winter weather in the Czech Republic. For its 64 cm it is designed for riding on a calm surface. If I can evaluate this kit it is excellent. I can only recommend.
