    Jayrob on MSN!

    I didn't want to draw unwanted attention to our hobby so I posted here so Jay could see and decide for himself. :thinking: Little do they know... :evil:

    Jayrob on MSN!

    At the time I saw the article there were already 20 pages of comments. I read a few pages and it appeared about half thought it was faked and many posters knew it was real. I wasn't about to point the general public here or mention Jayrob. If they are smart enough, they'll find LPF on their own.

    Looks like MSN just discovered Jayrob's BluRay Phaser kit! LOL Link below: Man builds working 'Star Trek' style phaser, blasts a balloon

    Canon DSLR beamshots of 638nm and 445nm laser.

    Very nice beamshots! You most definately fixed the color rendition errors. Thank you for the information about the Adobe RAW 5.7. Rep +

    I would be highly suspect of the swollen battery. It's just not worth using it and possibly starting a fire. Also, I use a LiPo-Safe bag when charging LiPos. Buy a few more Nano-techs, they're only about a buck and a half each for the ones you need.

    I use Hobby King's Turnigy nano-techs in my mCP X. They work very well. You should do well with the ones you ordered. Remember though, the slower you charge them, the longer they will last. You should never charge them at more than 1C for best longevity. Slower than that is better.

    Those probably are the same batteries because that heli looks very much like the E-Flite/Blade mSR. The transmitter looks exactly the same as the RTF (ready to fly) version.

    I would definately look at spare parts availability before purchasing and probably go with a fixed pitch 4 channel before jumping into a collective pitch heli.

    The Walkera V200DQ01 is much more fragile than the Blades. My flying ability wasn't as good as it should have been for that full fuselage model and a mistake messing with the transmitter settings caused a hard crash that burned up either the mail motor or receiver so I ended up selling it. The...

    mini RC helicopters

    Long answer: I started with a Syma S107 the middle of March, 2011. Soon after came a Syma S032 and S022. Then I got a Blade 120 SR fixed pitch from my local hobby shop. The Blade mSR came next. I had a Walkera V200DQ01 for a short time. Phoenix v3 Sim is pretty good for practicing and trying out...

    The Syma co-axial helis are fun and a good appetite whetter, but they get boring in a relatively short time since they are fairly slow and totally unable to fly outdoors. I must say I've had a lot of fun with mine. When the time comes to graduate to a real RC heli, you'll never go back to the...

    mini RC helicopters

    After you get a little fixed pitch heli experience, go for the mCP X! You won't be disappointed. They can take a beating if you chop the throttle before you hit a hard object (none if you crash in tall lawns), will easily fly outside in 15+ mph winds, and parts are readily available at your...

    Well, I went ahead and bought the Blade mCP X. Now it's all I fly, I've been giving away my toy SYMAs to get other people hooked. :eg: I'm still flying it tail in but am getting better and more adventurous all the time. This is one tough little bird! I'd recommend spending a bit of time on a...

    I watched my friend fly his Blade mCP X in 17mph winds. Unbelievable for a heli that only weighs 1.6 ounces (45.5 grams)!

    UPDATE:I'm not very impressed with Walkera durability or electronics. Crashes are inevitable but you shouldn't have to replace ALL the electronics just because the heli tipped while taking off. I chopped the throttle immediately when the main blades started to rub the concrete sidewalk but the...
