I've struggled with lipo discharging for storage, using various light bulb rigs does the job but you have to be careful both to monitor voltages with various meters and beepers, also to not melt the tablecloth/carpet !

Saw this 80W discharger a couple of months ago on Banggood, so pre-ordered it and it came on Friday and works well, discharges <3S lipos at 6Amps, max current drops at higher voltages (6S around 3.5-4amps) but still much easier to use than light bulbs - and safer. Most chargers only discharge at 0.5amps so take forever, and puts heat/wear and tear on charger so this is much more practical especially for larger packs.

It has an XT60 input and two buttons to select cell count and max current, discharge slowly ramps up at start, and looks to ramp down again as target voltage of 3.8v/cell is reached, it then beeps when finished so you can swap over. It has a cooling fan on a thermostatic switch so keeps itself under 40degC which is warm to the touch, certainly better than the light bulb rigs!

My early cheap lipos I never bothered with discharging if I'd charged and not been able to fly, and they definitely deteriorated over a year or two, the more expensive 6S 5000mah lipos I have religously discharged if unused for storage, also the high C miniquad packs, and these have definitely lasted much better still rock solid and decent IRs even after a few years and 50+ cycles, so definitely worth looking at if you have high cost or spec lipos to look after.

I got a S6R to review from Banggood - which I asked for because I thought it would be any easy swap out in my MiniRaveWing and it seemed less involved that going the iNav route.

One or two gotcha's on this though, like the fact I couldn't get it to work on my original FrSky X9D - weirdness.  I've made a part one video dealing with the setup (and use of LUA scripts), I'll try flying it in part 2.... my launching can't get any worse than last time :)

Hey, I know that guy.  He's very handsome, and everyone should do what he says :)

(review was already posted up in the Product Review sub-forum BTW http://www.fpvhub.com/index.php/topic,52434.0.html)

I now remember why I chucked this in the back of the odds and sods draw!
I'm now trying to resurrect this thing so am hoping for some advice please chaps.
If I connect it up to my PC and choose the required settings and then save them it all works perfectly.
BUT- once the TX is powered off the tracker then  loses the gain setting and reverse settings.
When the tx is back on and powering the Tracker it won't move?
If I then reconnect it to the PC the GUI shows the settings have been lost once again??
So although it's saying "Saved" it's not?
Any suggestions please  ;D

Thanks Ratty  :D
I noticed the BFPVRA Championship announcement and looked up where Buckminster was (I've not been in Lincolnshire long) and got a little giddy when I saw that its only 45 mins away. Trouble is, half-term plans start on Sat. Hmm, wonder if I can convince the fam on a little detour  :P Gonna try - they can only say no. But it doesn't say what time the event starts. Any idea?

The racing is due to start at 9:30-10:00am on the Saturday, and at 9:00-9:30 on Sunday. Weather dependent of course.

Haven't seen any FPV on heli's for an age, so looking forward to your build Njoro.

The Heli arrived the other day off eBay, the one thing for sure is there is no way that this heli was flown by the last owner the head geometry was a total "baboons ass". The new Rotor head is fitted. I'll start a thread on the build next.
