Thank Dave M. It get's confusing when in the manual it states... Charge to half capacity after use. But of course, how can you charge it to half capacity, when the charger charges EACH cell separately. It's hair pulling out stage. LOL.
Can anyone explain to me what the following statements, printed on this battery, means please. 1) 20C DISCHARGE RATE 2) 3C CHARGE RATE 3) 1300 mAh 3S 11.1v If I purchase a futher battery at say 2200 mAh, would I need to make sure it discharges and charges at the same figures as the 1300 mAh above.
The instruction manual says "When the charging of one cell is complete (there are three cells in this battery) the LED turns green and the next cell is charged. It then states in the manual "Charge your Li-Po battery to about half capacity before storage." How do you do that when each cell is charged separately during the process
NOW LOOSEN UP PLEASE: I have this Joysway transmitter. It's for my Dragonflite 95. The controls on the left operate the rudder and the controls on the right operate the sails. I'm use to it being the opposite. Do I change the mode selector switch under the battery housing and THEN loosen and tighten the screws as per instructed. It just seems long winded.
DRAGONFLITE 95 SHORT CARBON KEEL: With many local councils here in the United Kingdom having restricted cash flow, it's getting increasingly more difficult to source a pond that's weed free and has the required depth for the D95's standard keel. Has anyone had experience of this now available shortened version and it's advantages and disadvantages. By the way, does anyone know the actual length of the standard Dragonflite 95 keel. Is it true that approx some 80mm is taken up of the length of the keel to insert into the hull. I'm trying to gauge as a comparison, the short keel against the standard keel, in order to have a guide as to what water depth I can sail in.
Hi Dave. Sorry for the confusion. This is the FLYSKY unit I have. The FS-i6. The company that supplied me it provided the wrong transmitter. As a gesture of goodwill they are offering to replace it with the model FS-i6s. And I was wondering if it has other facilities or easier to program. It certainly look cleaner and less cluttered. The photo showing the plug at the back is infact the FLYSKY FS-i6.
FLYSKY FS-IA6S I have an opportunity to exchange my current FLYSKY transmitter for the one above. It’s primarily for drones etc but has a more simplified set up with a touch screen access. Anyone got one and that has some experience of it's use with a sailing yacht.
Anyone know who made these glorious boats, particularly through the sixties and seventies. Countless hours with the children watching them sail round and round till the wind would act in their favour and bring them back to shore. Frequently though, had to wade in with my trousers rolled up to rescue them. Of course the crying would stop then.
